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 transport.

Product Overview
The LaCie Rugged Mini Hard Disk shares features with LaCie’s popular Rugged Hard Disk, like shock-resistance, drop-resistance, and rubber sleeve for added protection. But the Rugged Mini is also rain- and pressure-resistant—you can drive over it with a 1-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.

Suggested Industries:

Travelers: Protect valuable data from loss, theft, or accident while on the road.
Photographers: Small form factor and toughness is good for use in the field or to safely deliver large files to customers and partners, and encryption adds extra layer of intellectual property protection.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking fine

This review is from: LaCie Rugged Mini 1.5TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 9000193 Orange

Pros: Metal casing and slightly thicker USB cable gives it a more solid feeling

Rubber "bumper"


Cons: Slightly bulkier than any of my previous 2.5" external drives

Other Thoughts: Never had much luck with these 2.5" externals, longest one lasting just under a year. Decided to spend the couple extra $$$ on this one thinking I'm just being too rough on them. Hope it's worth it.

1 out of 5 eggsFAULTY PRODUCT

This review is from: LaCie Rugged Mini 1.5TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 9000193 Orange

Pros: 1.5TB, rugged case

Cons: So far all everything, since the HDD I have received did not power on. It's a BRICK.

Other Thoughts: It was initially recognized by my PC (Vista), I have initiated formatting as instructed in a short supplied manual. Formatting was completed.

Then an HDD became a brick and is not recognized by any of my 2 PCs (Vista, XP). The led blinks slowly, nothing happens. I have checked it thru other HDD managers - same stuff. BRICK.
