It’s been a little while since we heard from LaCie but this week, the company announced an incremental update to its Rugged USB 3.0 Thunderbolt line, with a 2TB model on the horizon.
Alongside the capacity boost, the new line ships with a 15% speed increase over the previous model, with data transfer speeds hitting up to 127 MB/s
“With video and photo file sizes increasing exponentially, creative pros are generating more digital content than ever before,” said Erwan Girard, Professional Business Manager, LaCie. “Today, we’ve addressed their number one demand by doubling the LaCie Rugged’s capacity. This allows on–the–go pros to store more data on fewer drives and lets them stay in the field longer.”
With USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt ports on board, the LaCie drive is designed to allow both PC and Mac owners the highest speeds available for their computers.
Expect to see the new drive hit stores shortly for $299.99 with a two year warranty and a Thunderbolt cable thrown in to boot.
