LaCie debuts USB 3.0 mobile hard drive

The Rugged USB 3.0 provides three times the speed of USB 2.0

LaCie has announced the latest addition to its Rugged family of mobile hard drives: the LaCie Rugged USB 3.0; combining the fast speeds of USB 3.0 and the company's rugged design. LaCie says that the Rugged USB 3.0 is one the most power-efficient and fast-performing mobile hard drives offered by the company.

The Rugged USB 3.0 provides speeds of up to 110 MB/s -- three times the speed of USB 2.0 -- according to the company. It offers improved power efficiency, so you only need one cable.

If you do not have a USB 3.0 connection on your PC or notebook, LaCie also offers PCI Express or ExpressCard bundled options with the Rugged USB 3.0.

The LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 is backward compatible with USB 2.0. This means it will work with any computer or notebook that has a USB connection - offering instant usability no matter what version of USB.

Housed in the Rugged casing designed by Neil Poulton, the LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 features a scratch-resistant aluminium shell, internal anti-shock absorbers, and a shock-resistant rubber bumper to better protect files against everyday blunders.The LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 will be available in 500GB capacity for £118 plus VAT.

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
