"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

The Essential Professional Storage

With speeds up to three times faster than FireWire 800, LaCie 2big Thunderbolt Series also features RAID security, hot-swappable disks, and daisy chain convenience. Heavy data users can turbo charge their workflow with jaw-dropping speed improvements. And capacities up to 6TB* on 7200rpm hard disks deliver the professional storage they demand. Improve your workflow. Get huge data storage. Ensure full data protection.



Lightning Speeds Save Time

Transfer rates up to 327 MB/s. More speed, more efficient workflow.





Backups take a fraction of the time, letting you back up more frequently.





Photographers using Lightroom® or Aperture® will notice significantly more responsive photo library browsing.



Videographers working in Final Cut Pro X® or other professional software can even stream multiple HD video streams directly from the drive.



Performance Comparison

 

RAID for Speed or Security



Use Disk Utility on your Mac OS to configure the 2big Thunderbolt Series into a RAID array that suits your needs. It's possible to set it up as a mirrored RAID set (RAID 1), which provides data protection if one disk fails. Thanks to its removable disks, you can simply replace a disk, with zero data loss and no work interruption.

Alternatively, configure it as a striped RAID set (RAID 0) to maximize speed and capacity for large file storage and fast transfers. It even supports JBOD, which lets you assign each disk to a specific data storage task. For instance, you can put backups for even weeks on one disk, and odd weeks on the other.

LaCie also offers the RAID Monitor software for your 2big Thunderbolt Series. It alerts you when a disk needs maintenance, identifies which drive has failed, and helps you to resolve the issue.




Daisy Chain to Multiply Options



Thunderbolt technology is the most flexible interface ever created. With dual Thunderbolt ports on the 2big, you can daisy chain up to six Thunderbolt peripherals together. That means you don't need to buy a hub to connect multiple devices to a single Thunderbolt port on your computer. In addition, it increases the total amount of storage you can make available to your Mac.

Daisy chaining multiple 2bigs even pushes overall performance to more than 670MB/s for your most data-intensive tasks. Thunderbolt technology is also mini-DisplayPort compatible. For example, you can connect a display and a 2big to your Mac via a single Thunderbolt cable.





Aluminum Reliability and Security


The 2big's advanced dual cooling system ensures long-term reliability by preventing overheating. Its solid-aluminum casing provides 60% more surface area, which diverts and dissipates heat more efficiently. In addition, its thermo-regulated fan turns on and off according to internal temperature. As a result, it cools the components while reducing electricity usage. For more energy savings, the front power button even lets you turn off the product without breaking a daisy chain connection.




Designed for Professionals

The 2big Thunderbolt Series was painstakingly designed to integrate seamlessly into professionals' workspace. The ultra-quiet cooling fan makes the 2big perfect for even the most noise-sensitive creative environments. What's more, you can stand it alone vertically, or lay it horizontally on your desk to stack with multiple products. Even neatly stack it with the LaCie d2 Desk Rack or standard 19" Rackmount Kit.

By Gaylord K. 
This is an excellent RAID drive. The design of the enclosure is pretty solid, the drive is very quiet, and blindly fast thanks to the dual Thunderbolt ports. I use it for video editing, and it does a great job.

Awesome Device, 2013-08-14
By RNoelle 
I've just recently discovered the speed of Thunderbolt. It's just amazing. I don't have to make massive data transfers anymore, just work directly from the drive. The unit itself is well built, and seems to be very solid. I love it.
