If you are looking for a hard drive with a minimum of wires and a small footprint, this La Cie hard drive is as perfect for you as it is for me. No fan, almost inaudible, and the software is easy to set up to automatically make backups on a schedule.

-Bill quote

For the price at Buy.com you can't beat all the connectivity options that the LaCie Rugged Hard Drive model 301371 gives you. The 500GB of storage the biggest in a 2.5 package available the rugged design and included software works for me. I use the FW800 connection with my Macbook Pro very fast transfer rates.
