The LaCie LaCinema Rugged multimedia hard drive is purposely built for viewing movies and videos. It is ruggedized with a scratch-resistant aluminum shell, internal anti-shock absorbers, and a shock-resistant rubber bumper to better protect media files against everyday blunders.
The company said the Rugged edition provides the convenience of a centralized media library with graphic menus and an easy-to-use remote control. It is compatible with both Mac and Windows with its USB 2.0 interface. It connects to an HDTV set via an HDMI plug.
The LaCie LaCinema Rugged is available through the LaCie Online Store and LaCie resellers at the suggested retail price starting at $220 for the 250GB model.
