have to worr
y about when it gets accidentally dropped on the floor, LaCie has the
exact thing as the company has just announced their new Rugged eSATA
hard drives — the first on the market that feature the Power eSATA
interface, that promise transfer speeds of up to 90MB/s.
Those who don't have a Power eSATA port on their notebook or computer
should rest assured that they can still use LaCie's rugged drives as
they are compatible with standard eSATA ports when the included USB
power-sharing cable is connected, as long as transfer speeds are not a
concern, that is.
We are thrilled to integrate power eSATA technology into our
best-selling Rugged mobile hard drive, said Anne-Sophie Marchand,
Consumer Product Manager. This solution brings dazzling transfer speeds
to customers on the go, while still ensuring compatibility with standard
eSATA and USB 2.0 connectors.
Other than being uber-fast, the new drives are made from the same unique
scratch-resistant aluminum material that standard models use. The
special design acts as an internal anti-shock absorber while the
shock-resistant rubber bumper adds up to better protection for your data.
The new LaCie rugged eSATA drive is now available as a 500GB model and
will cost you a good $159.99 to bring one home.Read | Or scroll down for
