LaCie announces USB 3.0 Thunderbolt series


LaCie says its Rugged hard drive is the first storage solution to feature both Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 technology on a high-performance SSD. These cutting-edge technologies make the new LaCie Rugged the fastest bus-powered solution on the market, according to CEO Philippe Spruch.

The LaCie Rugged delivers speeds up to 380MB/s, making it the fastest bus-powered product ever, he adds. Respectively, the hard disk version performs up to 110MB/s, a 35% mprovement over FireWire 800, according to Spruch.

Because USB 3.0 is backwards compatible, the user can connect it to any standard computer. The LaCie Rugged is also fully bus-powered through the included USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt cables.

It's MIL-compliant for data protection from accidental drops up to 1.2 meters (four feet). Thanks to SSD technology, it can resist intense vibration and shock, says Spruch. It iincludes AES 256-bit encryption software to protect files from prying eyes or theft.

The Rugged USB 3.0 Thunderbolt Series, design by Neil Poulton, comes in a 1TB HDD model for US$249.99, a 120GB SSD model for $199.99 and a 256GB SSD model for $349.99. It's available through Apple Retail, as well as the LaCie Online Store and LaCie Resellers. For more product information, visit www.lacie.com .
