And it’s tough too - LaCie’s LaCinema Rugged HD

With 500 GB of built in storage and an easy to use interface, the LaCinema is the first Mobile HD multimedia player. LaCie looks to make consumers forget the lukewarm reviews of their previous offering by improving upon designs, features and most notably, video quality.

The LaCinema Rugged HD supports most standard and high definition video formats and is compatible with both PCs and Macs. It connects to HD monitors through an HDMI cable and is capable of playing at full 1080p HD.

Featuring a scratch resistant aluminum case and internal shock absorber, not only is it built to display great video, it’s apparently ready to take a beating as well. Shipping at a price of $349.99, we’ll certainly be looking forward to what reviewers have to say.
