Groundbreaking Design:
Sophisticated users will appreciate the Lancer’s innovative ruggedized design, feel, quality, and features. A combination of ports, FireWire 800 (1394b IEEE) and Supper-Speed USB 3.0, makes this multi-interface device one of the most versatile drives in the market. For extra flexibility, optional cables can connect the FireWire 800 port to any FireWire 400 (1394a IEEE) or USB 3.0 to any USB 2.0 ports in any Mac or PC.  

The shock-absorbent casing protects the drive against impact damage and accidental drops and bumps to prolong product life and protect data integrity. The wide array of ports ensures maximum compatibility regardless of the type of computer or operating system in use.  

Wide Range of Applications
Operating with Mac OS, Linux, and Windows, this external drive offers storage capacities ranging from 500GB to 1TB hard drive or solid-state drives, as well as “plug-and-play” capability. Users can quickly archive or back up valuable data, large video files, and digital photo collections. The bootable feature allows the user to boot, access, and operate all programs and data via any other computer under the same OS environment.

Design Technology:
Unprecedented in design, quality, size, and ruggedness, the Lancer series pocket drives are built to satisfy the most sophisticated users. The Lancer LX, with its Supper-Speed USB and FireWire, is cross-platform compatible with Mac and PC Windows. The new design anti-shock chamber and shock-absorbent casing protect the drive against impact damage and accidental drops and bumps to prolong product life and protect data integrity.

Lancer Ruggedized Portable Enclosure Design

How does the Lancer, 2.5” Enclosures Design Help Protect Your Hard Drive?
The safety-centric mechanical design of Lancer 2.5” enclosures provides critical hardware protection features including:

Secure shock-absorbent Mechanism
The full-length bridgeboard provides additional protection by supporting the entire length of the hard drive. Strong aluminum rim hold the hard drive chassis firmly in place eliminating stress on the bridgeboard and preventing damage due to impact or violent movement.

Shock-absorbent Protection
The shock-absorbent dampers strip between the bridgeboard and chassis offers additional resistance against accidental drops and bumps. The disposition of the hard drive and housing profile form an anti-shock chamber to cushion the blow of potential impacts.

Thermal Protection and load-bearing case
The precision density of the RUGGED ALUMINUM Aircraft Grade border provides excellent heat dissipation and is strong enough to bear external weight.
