LaCie has added the super fast speed of USB 3.0 to its Rugged 2.5-inch portable hard drive design. The company says the Rugged USB 3.0 is one of its most power-efficient and fastest mobile hard drives, providing speeds up to 110MB/s – three times the speed of USB 2.0 – which translates to the transfer of a HD movie in less than three minutes.

A USB 3.0 connection can be added to your existing PC or notebook with a LaCie USB 3.0 PCIe card or USB 3.0 PCIe Express card. LaCie also offers bundled options with the Rugged USB 3.0.

The LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 is housed in a scratch-resistant aluminum shell and features anti-shock absorbers and a shock-resistant rubber bumper which make it drop resistant to 2.2m. It is backward compatible with USB 2.0 so it should work with any computer or notebook that has a USB connection.

The LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 will be available in 500GB capacity through the LaCie for US$149.99.
