If you’re interested in a great looking storage device and have the money then you’ll want a LaCie. If you’ve got a system with Thunderbolt 2 your choices are limited but LaCie has just announced the 2big that’s equipped with Thunderbolt 2. Price starts at $599 but it goes up to 12tb in capacity, the more storage the larger the price of course..
-LaCie, the premium brand of Seagate Technology (NASDAQ: STX), announced the availability of the fastest dual-disk RAID solution on the market – the LaCie™ 2big. Now with Thunderbolt™ 2 technology, the LaCie 2big delivers speeds of up to 420MB/s*, which means zero lag for photographers and action-camera gurus who use Lightroom® or Final Cut Pro®. Combined with up to 12TB of capacity, hardware RAID and a cutting-edge industrial design, this makes the LaCie 2big a powerhouse for productivity.
A common annoyance for creative professionals is lag caused by full or slow storage. The LaCie 2big delivers enough bandwidth and capacity to ensure professionals can store large photo and video libraries while editing or instantly applying filters to photos. They can then export entire photo libraries in half the time of single hard-disk solutions. Furthermore, GoPro®users working with HD video files will experience a drastic reduction in render times, allowing them to optimize workflow and publish videos faster.
“With the LaCie 2big, I’m moving data at rates I didn’t think were possible,” said photographer Seth Resnick. “Accessing Lightroom libraries directly from the LaCie 2big sets a new standard for my workflow. I can work in real-time with an almost instantaneous response. This is by far the best drive I have ever tested for my workflow.”
LaCie reengineered the 2big to be one of the most optimized dual-disk storage devices on the market. The LaCie 2big features front-loading disks, disk status LEDs, improved near-silent heat dissipation, a secret door for cable management, and hardware RAID protection—all beautifully enclosed in a new, iconic Neil Poulton design.
The LaCie 2big is the first dual-disk product to ship with Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0. This means the LaCie 2big gets the best possible speeds on any late-model PC or Mac® computer. And, USB 3.0 backward compatibility means that users can connect the LaCie 2big to any standard computer.
