If you need an extra place to back up all your photos, videos, music, documents, and more, you want some external storage. The problem is that SSD-based drives are super expensive, which is why an external hard drive is preferable since they’re much more affordable (this deal on a portable WD SSD, however, is worth checking out). But HDDs can be delicate, right? Not if you have the LaCie Rugged Mini External Hard Drive.
Drop this drive from 4 feet up or get some water (or dust) on this drive — it doesn’t matter. This USB 3.0 drive will last a long time thanks to its famously orange and eye-catching cushion case design.
