With the LaCie Rugged RAID, you get it all in one package – with zero tradeoffs. It delivers a game-changing blend of PC and Mac® compatibility, capacity, speed, mobility, and reliability. As the ultimate solution for on-the-go professionals, the LaCie Rugged adapts to your needs for performance or complete data security.
More Speed, Less Waiting
When getting the win hinges on speed, you need Thunderbolt – the fastest interface on the market. The LaCie Rugged also includes two internal hard drives that are preconfigured in hardware RAID 0 for sustained performance of up to 240 MB/s*.
At this speed, you can store and transfer content twice as fast as before. It’s a time-slashing solution for field-based professionals who collect and move tons of data onto external storage.
Versatility Anywhere, on Any Computer
Tailor the LaCie Rugged to your precise needs. Leave it in RAID 0 (striped mode) to maximize speed and capacity. Or choose RAID 1 (mirrored mode), where your data is duplicated across the two drives. So even if a drive fails in the field, your files remain completely accessible.
Using LaCie Setup Assistant, it’s incredibly easy to make the LaCie Rugged compatible with any Mac computer, PC, or both. And with Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 interfaces and hardware RAID, any computer will recognize the LaCie Rugged*. It lets you transport a massive amount of data – with complete security – and access it freely from any computer.
Innovative Design for True Mobility
LaCie has designed acclaimed Rugged storage products for nearly a decade. With the Rugged RAID, LaCie makes your data more mobile than ever. Carry fewer hard drives, fewer cables, and encounter zero roadblocks.
The LaCie Rugged is tested to withstand drops** of up to 1.5 meters (5 feet) and being run over by a 1-ton car***. So whether the LaCie Rugged falls out of your backpack or is crushed by stacks of suitcases in the airplane cargo hold, your data remains safe.
With its cap in place, the LaCie Rugged is IP 54-rated for superior resistance to dust and water splashing – even during operation. So even during a dust storm or tropical downpour, you stay confident that your data remains accessible.
Massive Capacity, Compact Footprint
With 4 TB in a portable size, the LaCie Rugged can store the equivalent of thirty 128 GB memory cards. Capacity finally meets mobility.
Integrated Thunderbolt Cable
Ensure you never lose your cable, stow it neatly when not in use, while saving space in your luggage.
No Power Cable Needed
Powered through the Thunderbolt cable, the LaCie Rugged lets you access your data anywhere – no power outlet required.
The LaCie Rugged‘s RAID system is operating system independent, so any computer recognizes it.
The LaCie Rugged includes everything professionals need for secure backup in the field: a backup software suite and compatibility with Time Machine™ and Windows® Backup. It also includes LaCie Private-Public software, which lets you password-protect the entire drive or only certain volumes with AES 256-bit encryption.
For the ultimate in peace of mind and value, the LaCie Rugged features a three-year limited warranty that can also be extended and upgraded. The included limited warranty provides comprehensive, complimentary web-based resources, expert in-house technical support, and worldwide repair and/or replacement coverage
* These transfer rates were achieved using AJA System Test when connected to a Mac computer via the Thunderbolt interface. Actual data rates may vary depending on operating environment and other factors, such as chosen interface and disk capacity.
** In non-operating mode.
*** Determined by a test that approximates a real-world scenario in which the hard drive remained functional, despite aesthetic damage, after the product was driven over by an approximately 1-ton car (1000 kg / 2205 lbs).
▲ The file system format you choose for the LaCie Rugged must be compatible with the host computer.
When referring to drive capacity, one gigabyte, or GB, equals one billion bytes and one terabyte, or TB, equals one thousand billion bytes. Your computer’s operating system may use a different standard of measurement and report a lower capacity. In addition, some of the listed capacity is used for formatting and other functions and will not be available for data storage.
