Lacie Rugged 1TB eternal hard drive
Available from: R2 595
Love it: The Rugged is an external hard drive with maximum reliability and durability. The orange rubber bumper surrounding the device can apparently otect the device from 1.2 metre (non-operating mode) tumbles or less and is also pressure-resistant and rain-resistant. The drive features a USB 3.0 interface, which is also USB 2.0 compliant, and a transfer rate of up to 5GB/s. When it comes to RPMs, the drive functions at 5 400 rotations per minute. The LaCie Private-Public software that comes built into the drive ensures that you can keep private files private with the help of a password-protected section of the drive.
Not so much: It’s a tad on the pricy side as far as hard drives go – there are definitely cheaper options out there.
In a nutshell: We live in a time when technology is moving and upgrading so quickly that storing your data in a safe place is key. This tough little guy looks like the best chance you have at keeping all your data safe, all the while still managing to look bright and funky!
