"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

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 700MB video file in less than 7 seconds with USB 3.0, compared to 25 seconds with USB 2.0*** With the Rugged Triple's 7200rpm model, you can even achieve speeds up to 110MB/s. Additionally, you can use the LaCie Mac USB 3.0 Driver to improve data transfer speed on your Mac (up to a 30% performance increase compared to FireWire 800). 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 1000g 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.


User-Friendly Software Suite Included

The Rugged Triple also offers easy setup and automatic backup on both PC and Mac computers. It also features an automatic Eco mode that lowers the power consumption by up to 40% when not in use, increasing the battery life of your notebook. In addition, you get 10GB of Wuala Online Storage included for one year to securely store and share your data online.

It's not only rugged, it's also Fast!, 2013-07-10
By Greg 
So far, after a week's use, I'm very pleased -- and impressed -- with this drive. I've only used the Firewire 800 connection and it's blazing fast compared to USB 2.0. I don't have a USB 3.0 interface, so I can't speak of its performance, but if you...
