New York
- LaCie today revamped its Rugged family of portable hard drives with a model
incorporating USB 3.0.

The 500GB LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 is now available for $149. USB 3.0
features data transfer speeds of 110MBps.

Since most computers are not USB 3.0-ready, LaCie is making
available USB 3.0 PCI and PCI Express cards so consumers can upgrade their
computers to handle this interface. The company has also created bundles
containing these cards and the drive.

The drive is housed in a scratch-resistant aluminum case surrounded
by a rubber bumper and internal shock absorbers capable of resisting falls from
up to 2.2 meters, the company said.
