  • Overview

    Completely redesigned, LaCie's 2big hard drive delivers versatility and reliability along with the performance of Thunderbolt 2 technology and hardware RAID. Now the interface is no longer a performance bottleneck, thanks to the Thunderbolt 2 I/O - which gets peak speeds of 420 MB/s out of the hard disks.

    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 possible to daisy chain higher-resolution displays such as 4K monitors.

    Highlights

    Impressive speeds up to 420 MB/s

    Dual Thunderbolt 2 ports for 4K workflows

    Compatible with Time Machine

    Creative design with RAID for reliability

    USB 3.0 for PC and Mac compatibility

    Power-saving mode

    Front-accessible disks and disk status LEDs

    Effective, whisper-quiet fan

    Did You Notice?

    RAID is integrated into the drive for maximum reliability.

      So far, So good

      I finally got it to work the way I wanted it to work... as a 6TB Drive with a Mirror Copy on the 2nd Drive. It does NOT come Preset in that format and Apple was I finally got it to work the way I wanted it to work... as a 6TB Drive with a Mirror Copy on the 2nd Drive. It does NOT come Preset in that format and Apple was unable to assist me... which was fine... it is not their product and Apple provided me with a # for support for LaCie. LaCie has no (800) number... was on hold over 30 minutes - I finally hung up! There is NOT a CD and User Manual in the box as stated on Apple's Website. You must Download the software, Download the Manual and reformat the Drive to be a 6TB Mirror Drive, which was not that difficult, in my opinion. Other then that... it appears to be working fine... it is rather quick and basically silent.

      The good, the bad and the noisy

      Good for consumers, not for professionals. You hear it scratch a lot. The storage worked well but thunderbolt stop after 15 days. Could still work in usb3.

Had to contact apple, then lacie, then seagate. Warranty is complicated. Should have bought a Pegasus2
