France 14 April  2009 - Today LaCie announced the Rugged XL, a super-sized
expansion to LaCie's award-winning line of Rugged hard drives. Showcasing
more than just its extra-large exterior, the Rugged XL doubles capacity to
1TB, and will surely amplify the style of any creative desktop.


Rugged XL leverages the design and durability of the popular Rugged drive,
offering aluminum casing for superior protection on your desktop, as well
the signature orange rubber sleeve. Taking advantage of the Rugged's
reputation for resilience, the Rugged XL also features an internal bumper
and heat dissipating features, making the LaCie Rugged XL able to withstand
the challenges and blunders that can occur on anyone's desk.

Suited for speed-intensive applications or for large-scale backups, the
Rugged XL is versatile and compatible with both Mac and PC environments. In
addition, it supports two key interfaces: Hi-Speed USB for universal
compatibility, and the extreme speed of eSATA 3Gb/s. The new drive also
includes a complete software bundle for easy formatting with LaCie Setup
Assistant, as well as Genie Backup Assistant software for Windows users and
Intego Backup Assistant software for Mac users.

"Since the launch of the original Rugged drive, users have shared stories
admiration for the robust materials, functionality and design of the Rugged
family of hard drives," said Lise Manteau, Desktop Hard Disk Product
Manager. "It was a natural progression to expand the Rugged family and
customers the same durability and style in a solution suited for
safeguarding data in the desktop environment."

The LaCie Rugged XL makes a statement on your desktop, combining a durable
design and colorful presence. Its warm orange LED strip on its underside
underscores LaCie's dedication to superior design and functionality. With
its unconventional, uncomplicated, and usable design, the Rugged XL stands
above other desktop solutions.
