LaCie Rugged XL – A 1TB External Hard Drive

LaCie has introduced its latest Rugged series hard drive, the Rugged XL. It is an external desktop hard drive with high-capacity storage space up to 1TB. That’s double the storage capacity of what the original model could hold. The Rugged XL is also extra large on its size compared with its older models.


The Rugged XL supports both Windows and Mac operating systems. Its setup is easy and effortless with ‘plug & play’ concept. The drive supports Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and the lightning-fast eSATA 3Gb/s interface that allows high-speed connection with your computer. In addition, various software are packaged with the Rugged XL, such as Genie Backup Assistant software for Windows users and Intego Backup Assistant software for Mac users as well as LaCie Setup Assistant.
