Well respected PC storage specialists LaCie have just announced their popular Rugged series 2.5-inch portable hard drive with USB 3.0 support.

 

LaCie says this drive is capable of delivering up to 110MB/sec read speeds, more than three times that of USB 2.0. It also only requires a single cable to be connected thanks to improved power efficiency.

Being a part of LaCie's Rugged series, the casing can take a real beating with its scratch-resistant aluminum shell, internal anti-shock absorbers and a shock resistant rubber bumper that together will ensure the drive keeps ticking away without issue after accidential knocks or drops.

 

LaCie is now offering the Rugged USB 3.0 drive in 500GB capacities through its online store at $149.99.
