Triple Interface for the Best Performance
The LaCie Rugged Triple Hard Disk provides universal connectivity: you've got the superior speeds of USB 3.0 and FireWire 800, and full backward compatibility with FireWire 400 and USB 2.0*. You can transfer a 700 MB video file in less than 7 seconds with USB 3.0, compared to 25 seconds with USB 2.0** With the Rugged Triple's 7200 RPM model, you can even achieve speeds up to 110 MB/s. Whether your goal is super speed or complete compatibility, the Rugged Triple has everything you need.
Four Levels of Rugged Protection
The Rugged is one of our most popular hard disks, and it's the best way to protect your data. It conforms to military standard 810-F, and can support drops from up to two meters. It helps you carry your files with confidence, no matter where the road takes you, thanks to its shock-absorbing sleeve, aluminum anti-scratch casing, internal rubber bumpers, and a 1000 G shock-resistant hard drive. Calculations are based on average read time.

LaCie AES 256-bit encryption software comes standard with the Rugged Triple.

Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Drive failed in a less than a month (used for backups only, iMAC). Tried company support, but after multiple calls during 7am-5pm PT, no one ever answered (17-30 minutes on hold each call).
I've lost all of my backups and no support. I've wasted enough time troubleshooting and will purchase a backup drive from another company.
My only real problem is that the USB 3.0 does not work on my PC. I use an expresscard adapter with a Y-cord (which works with my Lacie Porsche P'9230) but I cannot access the files before the drive dismounts. USB 2.0 and the Firewire work perfectly. I have made a backup of my PC and altered/saved files from a Mac on the same day with no trouble. No corrupted files.
There have been reviews saying that the drive crashes after a few months of "intermittent use," but I use mine 2-5 days a week without trouble. I'll be sure to update my review if anything goes wrong.
(PS - I hate orange. The 'rugged' band (which is rubbery to protect the drive if dropped) is an eyesore in my opinion, yet I am not willing to take it off and risk dropping my hard drive, as I have already done once this semester. I have seen extra 'skins' available around on Amazon in much more 'neutral' colors as well as the advice to spray-paint the orange band. Other students in my Animation class have spread the rumor that purchasing directly from Lacie gives you an option of colors, though I do not know if this is true or not.)
