LaCie today unveiled two new products ahead of this week's Consumer Electronics Show, including the new LaCie Mirror, a hard drive encased entirely in Gorilla Glass, and the LaCie Rugged RAID Thunderbolt hard drive, the newest product in its Rugged collection.

The LaCie Mirror is a 1TB hard drive that's designed to be fashionable as well as functional. Created by product designer Pauline Deltour, the LaCie Mirror features a mirrored design that comes with an accompanying ebony stand.

"You have to look twice to discover the LaCie Mirror's true ambition," said Deltour. "Covered by mirrored glass, it's first an elegant and functional object, and only on second glance is it revealed to be a slim high-performance hard drive."

Through a collaboration with Corning, the LaCie Mirror is encased entirely in Gorilla Glass 3, making it ultra durable and resistant to chips and scratches. The 1TB LaCie Mirror will be available in late January for $279.99 from the LaCie website.

LaCie's second new product is the 4TB Rugged RAID Thunderbolt hard drive, which LaCie is calling the fastest HD available on the market with upload speeds that reach 240MB/s. Like all of LaCie's Rugged lineup, the new bus-powered Thunderbolt drive includes an aluminum shell that's encased in orange rubber for maximum protection and portability when used in the field. At 4TB, it includes two 2TB hard drives with RAID 0/1 options to optimize for speed or data security.

Aimed at audio/photo/video professionals and those who often travel, the Rugged RAID is the first mobile RAID hard drive with Thunderbolt and with resistance to shock, dust, and water thanks to its rubber casing. LaCie's Rugged RAID 4TB Thunderbolt hard drive will be shipping during the first quarter of 2015 for $449.

LaCie's parent company Seagate is also introducing several new products, including the Seagate Seven, the Seagate Personal Cloud, and the Seagate Wireless hard drive for iOS devices.

My issue with these Lacie rugged drives is that they're 5400 rpm. Why bother getting thunderbolt with a drive that slow?
