LaCie intros Rugged USB 3.0 external hard drive

LaCie has added the Rugged USB 3.0 external hard drive to its lineup, offering 110MBps practical transfer speeds, or about three times faster than current USB 2.0 drives. The drive gets its power from the USB 3.0 connection as well, and is offered in a 500GB capacity. The USB 3.0 connection is backwards-compatible with USB 2.0 ports.

The 2.5-inch, 7,200RPM drive is housed in a rugged casing that is said to be capable of withstanding drops from up to 7.2 feet. The aluminum shell is scratch-resistant as well. LaCie has priced the drive at $150 and estimates that it will arrive early in May.
