More Interfaces. More Speed.


Triple Interface for the Best Performance


The LaCie Rugged Triple Hard Disk provides universal connectivity: you've got the superior speeds of USB 3.0 and FireWire 800, and full backward compatibility with FireWire 400 and USB 2.0*. You can transfer a 700 MB video file in less than 7 seconds with USB 3.0, compared to 25 seconds with USB 2.0** With the Rugged Triple's 7200 RPM model, you can even achieve speeds up to 110 MB/s. Whether your goal is super speed or complete compatibility, the Rugged Triple has everything you need.

Four Levels of Rugged Protection


The Rugged is one of our most popular hard disks, and it's the best way to protect your data. It conforms to military standard 810-F, and can support drops from up to two meters. It helps you carry your files with confidence, no matter where the road takes you, thanks to its shock-absorbing sleeve, aluminum anti-scratch casing, internal rubber bumpers, and a 1000 G shock-resistant hard drive. Calculations are based on average read time. 

A Fifth Level of Data Security


LaCie AES 256-bit encryption software comes standard with the Rugged Triple. We've made it easy for you to create a password-protected area on your drive where you can securely store all of your confidential information. AES 256-bit encryption technology is one of the most robust on the market today, and makes the Rugged Triple more secure than ever.
