LaCie has rolled out their Rugged eSATA hard drive. The company says this is the first mobile external hard drive on the market that features a Power eSATA interface.
The Rugged eSATA offers major storage capacity and a cost advantage over eSATA SSD solutions, according to LaCie, and is one of the only portable, bus-powered eSATA solutions on the market. It boasts transfer speeds of up to 90MB/s in a truly mobile form.
Housed in the award-winning Rugged casing designed by Neil Poulton, the LaCie Rugged eSATA features a unique scratch-resistant aluminum shell, internal anti-shock absorbers, and a shock-resistant rubber bumper to better protect files against everyday blunders.
