Lacie Bumps Up Rugged Hard Disk to 500GB

Lacie 500GB Rugged Hard Disk

There’s a new 500GB version of the Lacie Rugged Hard Disk featuring a scratch-resistant aluminum body covered in shock-resistant rubber armor.

It uses the Hitachi Travelstar 5K500, 2.5-inch internal hard disk and comes preloaded with LaCie Setup Assistant, a proprietary utility that formats the drive according to your needs (Mac, Windows, or cross-platform environments) and automatically copies the user manual and utilities to the computer. The utilities provided include LaCie ‘1-Click’ Backup Software for both PC and Mac and SilverKeeper for Mac.

The LaCie Rugged 500GB version is available now and may be purchased through LaCie direct and via LaCie’s specialized dealer network at a suggested retail price starting at $300.
