Hard drives are fragile, aren't they? Well, take one look at the LaCie Rugged All-Terrain Hard Drive, and you will have to think again. This drive looks like a reinforced brick with a rubber jacket; yes, we actually mean a rubber jacket to protect it from nasty falls and bumps. Unable to resist the temptation, we actually drop-tested this drive and guess what; it survives. This drive has a huge 500GB capacity to take care of backups, video storage and large data. It comes with USB 2.0 as well as FireWire 400 and 800 interfaces - truly universal connectivity. It also has a power socket to supply power when the bus power is not enough. Thanks to the world-renown designer Neil Poulton, this drive looks good too. It comes bundled with all the necessary cables and the bundled software is for Windows as well as Mac. We have really high hopes from this drive, since our past experiences with LaCie drives have been good.
