Very high speed and robustness. But a little heavy and not very compact.

Special features

An eye-catching design with robust shell paired with excellent speeds.


The very compact, silver-coloured LaCie 1 TB Rugged Mini is framed with a striking orange protective armour.


The LaCie 1 TB Rugged Mini is clearly in the top range, with a read speed (sequential) of 134 MB/s and a write speed (sequential) of 129 MB/s. The LaCie Mini hard drive has a high performance and low power consumption.


The eye-catching, orange protective armour should enable the hard disk to carry a load of up to one ton and thus makes it extremely robust.
