Drop, crush, and rain-resistant for all-terrain use, the 1TB Rugged USB 3.0 Type-C External Hard Drive from LaCie combines weathered durability with USB 3.0 Type-C technology that delivers data transfer speeds of up to 130 MB/s. This drive has been tested with a drop resistance of 4', the crush resistance of a 1-ton car, and water resistance in the rain, all of which will help Windows and Mac users keep their data safe in the event of a mishap. When combined with the Rugged's storage capacity of 1TB, you'll have plenty of room for a variety of files, such as movies, photos, music, and documents. Additionally, this drive can be used as a digital shuttle to transport footage from set to a post-production facility, as well store large Adobe Lightroom libraries.
This LaCie Rugged features a 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 interface, which is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1. While it has been built with a reversible USB Type-C connector, meaning that the included USB Type-C cable can be inserted either right-side up or upside down, it is also compatible with USB 2.0 at speeds up to 480 Mb/s, while the included USB Type-C to Type-A cable allows compatibility with systems equipped with USB Type-A ports. The drive is bus powered through its USB cable, meaning that no other external power sources are required for operation, and protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.
