  • Overview

    The LaCie 2big Thunderbolt 2 Series RAID Hard Drive has an all-new industrial design that sets a new standard for versatility and reliability. Featuring unbeatable Thunderbolt 2 technology and hardware RAID, the 2big delivers sensational performance at super-fast speeds.

    LaCie harnessed the power of Thunderbolt 2 technology for the 2big, squeezing the absolute best speeds out of the hard disks. Add a hardware RAID controller and 7200 RPM disks and the result is incredible, sustained speeds of up to 420 MB/s that turbocharge file transfers and back-ups.

    Versatility for pro environments

    With USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt 2 interfaces, the LaCie 2big gets the best possible speeds on any late-model PC or Mac. Plus, USB 3.0 backwards compatibility means that you can connect the LaCie 2big to any standard computer. With support for exFAT and built-in hardware RAID, you can seamlessly connect to both PC and Mac computers without losing your RAID configuration.

    RAID for speed or security

    In addition to compatibility with any computer, hardware RAID delivers sustained performance and better reliability. The LaCie 2big's 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.

    With Thunderbolt 2 now built into the new Mac Pro and MacBook Pro with Retina display, you can connect up to three 4K displays at once. Thunderbolt 2 gives you up to 20 Gbps in both directions, allowing for super-fast data transfer between peripherals. You also have enough bandwidth to daisy-chain multiple high-speed devices without using a hub or switch.

    Thunderbolt also provides double the power of USB 3.0, delivering 10 watts to peripherals for improved performance on the go.
