It took a long time to do all my initial backups from MacBook plus two smaller LaCie drives, but subsequent back ups have been pretty quick. In case you don’t have a coin ready, LaCie also includes a little plastic key for the job. Rated 5 out of 5 by B. This is because in RAID 1 the bandwidth of the drive is limited by that of the internal hard drive. The 2big Thunderbolt has no power switch, so you can’t turn it on and off while it’s plugged in. In addition, some of the listed capacity is used for formatting and other functions and will not be available for data storage.

Since the drive is easy to set up and it’s probably best to use it with your Mac’s Time Machine for backing-up purposes, it’s likely you won’t need to use this CD at all.

In my tests, there was a big difference in the 2big’s performance between the two RAID setups. The 8TB will give me room for photos for the foreseeable future.

You can leave it in RAID 0 FAST mode to maximize speed and capacity for working on current projects, and then move completed projects to archival storage quickly.

2big Thunderbolt

That said, the LaCie 2big Thunderbolt is a good choice if you need a storage product that supports Thunderbolt and don’t want to spend too much on something that’s overkill for your needs. I would recommend this drive to a friend. When I contacted Lacie, they stated that my unit was defective and suggested I obtain a replacement unit since it was brand new. It can work on its side as well, but I see no reason not to use the base.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Disk performance is good but design flaw My first unit did not allow use of the kensignton lock because the plastic housing of the rear cooling fan is mounted flush with the upper edge of the kensington lock slot, preventing the locking piece from being rotated as it must to allow the lock piece to be attached.

Alas, I guess they will have to wait for the class action lawsuit requiring of them to notify all purchasers of the product of the defect with a provision to provide a redesigned replacement if desired. This unit was the same – would not work with the kensignton lock, and when I contacted Lacie again referencing the original ticket, they suggested I buy a different lock???

Computer with a Thunderbolt 2, USB 3.

Once plugged in, the drive turns itself off when the computer is off or in sleep mode, and goes back thundrrbolt when the computer is in operation. Raid options are selectable from a switch on the drive.

It comes with two hot-swappable bays that contain a 4TB rpm hard drive in each bay. Moreover, a built-in Noctua fan quietly cools the 2big and drives. Another note is, while LaCie says the hard drives are hot-swappable, you should only 2bih that when they are set up in RAID 1.

Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. Rated 5 out of 5 by B. Don’t show this again.

The drive is relatively expensive; it doesn’t have built-in support for any other common peripheral connections like USB or FireWire; and it doesn’t come with the necessary Thunderbolt cable.

I tried it with a few other Thunderbolt devices, including the Pegasus R6 and the Apple Thunderbolt Displayand the chain worked out very well, with no sign of bandwidth reduction.
