LaCie chose IBC 2019 to reveal three different portable SSD drives to its Rugged range – offering back up and archiving solutions for photographers and vloggers on the move.

The LaCie Rugged BOSS SSD is designed to be the ideal all-in-one back-up drive when travelling light, or when on location. With a built-in SD card reader, it can copy your images to its one terabyte solid state drive - and show you the progress of the backup process via its built-in display. But the clever bit is that you can then view and check the images you have shot by connecting the device to your phone or tablet, using the free app; micro USB and Lightning cables are provided with the unit to make this happen. The result is that you no longer need your laptop when on location.
