Ha! That's what the box says. Don't you just love advertising?! :mrgreen:
It is suppose to be shock free when dropped from 2 meters.  

Nice little LaCie Rugged 500 Gb HD. Ultra light too.
I bought it mainly because it spins at 7200 rpm instead of 5400 rpm most 2,5" HD do. And it's usb 3.0. But it's nice to know I can take it on safari if needed!


I've heard a lot of terrible experiences with LaCie hard drives.

And, mind you, the ONLY hard drives that are GUARANTEED that can sustain an even higher fall are SSDs! ;)


How can you say such a terrible thing?!  :o
This drive is "designed by" Neil Poulton and you can replace the default orange sleeve by a black or grey or blue one!




Quote from: "EvilDragon"Who?   :roll:
Scottish-based product designer Neil Poulton, who works mainly in lighting and hardware design, has recently added to his already large collection of international design awards. He was awarded two 'Etoile de l'Observeur du Design 2008' from the French Association for the Promotion of Industrial Design, for his work with hardware manufacturer LaCie.
Finding inspiration for his work has never been an issue for Neil. For one of his winning designs, 'FireWire Speakers', he found simple inspiration in the curves of air conditioning ducts. His 'FireWire External Hard Drive' has an even more obscure influence: the black monolith seen in 2001, A Space Odyssey.
"When I was a kid, I was fascinated by science fiction... I always loved the spaceships and everything," he says.
His fascination with the future has stayed with him, and now, Poulton is looking forward to continuing to work improving his designs. "There will be some pretty radical things happening in the future. You will see me doing things you haven't seen me doing up to now."

Check out his lamp!!!
