LaCie Rugged Mini 500GB External Hard Drive
 
Overview
The LaCie Rugged Mini Hard Disk shares features with LaCie's popular, full-sized Rugged Hard Disk, like shock-resistance, drop-resistance, and a rubber sleeve for added protection. But the Rugged Mini is also rain- and pressure-resistant — you can drive over it with a one-ton car, and it still works!

Its small size makes it completely mobile, and its rugged exterior provides protection against accidental drops, shock, or pressure. The Rugged Mini is the most compact member of the LaCie Rugged family, and will appeal to a wide range of users.

The Smallest Member of the Rugged Family
With its iconic orange design and secure form factor, the Rugged has been one of our most popular hard drives. With the Rugged Mini, we've shrunk the Rugged, and added tons of new features, making it a solid investment for on-the-go data transportation.

Maximum Reliability
The LaCie Rugged Mini Hard Disk shares features with our popular Rugged Hard Disk, like shock resistance, drop resistance, and a rubber sleeve for added protection. But with the Rugged Mini, we've gone a step further: it's also rain-resistant, and pressure-resistant - you can drive over it with a one-ton car, and it still works! Its small size makes it perfect to take with you wherever you go, and its Rugged exterior provides protection against accidental drops, shock, or pressure.
