La Cie’s popular Rugged Mini portable HDD is down to $65 for a 2TB model. That’s only a couple of dollars off from an all-time low that only came about during a flash sale on Amazon. This drive is best for those that want a physically tough device — it’s drop-, crush- and water-resistant and its accompanying software offers automatic backups and syncing across multiple devices. As long as you’re ok with the mini USB 3.0 connection that the discounted models have, this is a great deal.
