With the redesigned 2big, instead of aiming for incremental, LaCie shot for revolutionary. Its all-new industrial design demolishes the status quo and sets a standard ...
... for versatility and reliability. The LaCie 2big also features
unbeatable Thunderbolt 2 technology and hardware RAID for sensational
performance. With Thunderbolt 2 technology, the interface is no longer
the performance bottleneck.
For the 2big, LaCie harnessed the breakthrough performance potential of
the Thunderbolt 2 I/O, squeezing the absolute best speeds out of the
Add a hardware RAID controller and 7200RPM disks and the result is
incredible, sustained speeds of
up to 420MB/s that turbocharge file transfers and backups. With
this kind of speed, videographers can edit multiple 2K uncompressed
10-bit streams or play back compressed 4K video.
Digital photographers can browse a massive RAW photo library with zero
lag. And, thanks to support for DisplayPort 1.2, it's now possible to
daisy chain higher-resolution displays such as 4K monitors.
With USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt 2 interfaces, the LaCie 2big HDD Array gets
the best possible speeds on any late-model PC or Mac. And, USB 3.0
backward compatibility means that you can connect the LaCie 2big to any
With support for exFAT and built-in hardware RAID, you can seamlessly
connect to both PC and Mac computers without losing your RAID
configuration. Whatever your workstation, move mountains of data - fast.
Thunderbolt 2 continues to support daisy chaining of up to six devices
to a computer via a single cable (included in the box). This means that
professionals can daisy chain up to five LaCie 2bigs plus a 4K display
to a computer, bringing capacity, incredible speed, and convenience.
Thunderbolt 2 is also backward compatible and uses the same cables and
connectors as first-generation Thunderbolt devices and computers. n
addition to compatibility with any computer, hardware RAID delivers
sustained performance and better reliability.
The LaCie 2big's HDD range of RAID modes also gives you the flexibility
to tailor the product to meet your needs. It's incredibly easy to change
the RAID mode, but impossible to do so accidentally. You can leave it in
RAID 0 (FAST) mode to maximize speed and capacity for working on current
projects, and then move completed projects to archival storage
incredibly quickly. Or configure the LaCie 2big in RAID 1 or Mirroring
(SAFE) mode, which provides data protection if one disk fails. And
thanks to hot-swappable disks, you can simply replace a disk - from the
front - with zero data loss and no work interruption. Even in RAID 1,
impressive transfer speeds slash the time it takes to perform backups,
making it easier to back up more frequently.
The LaCie 2big even features JBOD, so you can see and use each disk
