LaCie’s 2big Thunderbolt series of hard drives are now available. Recently LaCie has launched this product, though actually it was announced in January during CES 2012. You will get from this product – shocking speeds up to 327MB/s, RAID flexibility: speed or security with Mac OS, dual Thunderbolt ports for daisy chaining, two hot-swappable disks for non-stop data access.
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.
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.

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.
