LaCie Launches Rugged XL 1 TB External HDD
Today LaCie announced the Rugged XL, a super-sized expansion to LaCie's award-winning line of Rugged hard drives. Showcasing more than just its extra-large exterior, the Rugged XL doubles capacity to 1 TB, and will surely amplify the style of any creative desktop.
Rugged XL leverages the design and durability of the popular Rugged drive, offering aluminum casing for superior protection on your desktop, as well as the signature orange rubber sleeve. Taking advantage of the Rugged's reputation for resilience, the Rugged XL also features an internal bumper and heat dissipating features, making the LaCie Rugged XL able to withstand the challenges and blunders that can occur on anyone's desk.
Suited for speed-intensive applications or for large-scale backups, the Rugged XL is versatile and compatible with both Mac and PC environments. In addition, it supports two key interfaces: Hi-Speed USB for universal compatibility, and the extreme speed of eSATA 3Gb/s. The new drive also includes a complete software bundle for easy formatting with LaCie Setup Assistant, as well as Genie Backup Assistant software for Windows users and Intego Backup Assistant software for Mac users.
"Since the launch of the original Rugged drive, users have shared stories of admiration for the robust materials, functionality and design of the Rugged family of hard drives," said Lise Manteau, Desktop Hard Disk Product Manager. "It was a natural progression to expand the Rugged family and offer customers the same durability and style in a solution suited for safeguarding data in the desktop environment."
The LaCie Rugged XL makes a statement on your desktop, combining a durable design and colorful presence. Its warm orange LED strip on its underside underscores LaCie's dedication to superior design and functionality. With its unconventional, uncomplicated, and usable design, the Rugged XL stands above other desktop solutions.
The LaCie Rugged XL will be available in a 1TB capacity, through the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Reseller+ or LaCie Storage Partner starting, at the suggested retail price of $159.99. For more information, visit http://www.lacie.com.
