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 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.
