Product Information

  • Overview

    More speed, more efficient workflow

    With lightning-fast speeds, immense five-disk capacity and proven LaCie reliability, the 5big Thunderbolt Series is the perfect complement to your Thunderbolt-compatible Mac, ideal for handling professional creative workflows. Get speeds of 785MB/s* thanks to five 7200rpm/64MB cache hard disks preconfigured in RAID 0. With these speeds, you have all you need for any post-production work.

    RAID flexibility for speed and security

    Thanks to its five disks, the LaCie 5big lets you custom make RAID configurations for your precise needs. Create a lightning-fast volume with three disks in RAID 0 and a safe volume with two disks in RAID 1. Hot-swappable disks** let you slide a new disk into the safe volume without switching off the device. The LaCie 5big can also be used as a JBOD array. With five working days a week, you can assign each disk to a daily backup. Support for JBOD makes the LaCie 5big the ideal backup companion to your Mac mini with OS X Server.

    Dual cooling system for long-term reliability

    The LaCie 5big's advanced dual cooling system ensures long-term reliability by preventing overheating. The system consists of three key components: an innovative heat-dissipating aluminium casing, a Noctua cooling fan and jumbo heat exhausts. Every aspect of this ultra-quiet cooling system makes the LaCie 5big perfect for even the most noise-sensitive creative environments.

    Designed for convenience

    Designed to integrate seamlessly into professional environments, with a small footprint and space-saving design, you can stand it alone or stack with multiple LaCie 5bigs.

    About Thunderbolt

    Thunderbolt is a revolutionary I/O technology that supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices via one simple port and a cable that carries both DisplayPort and PCI Express data. And it’s standard on every Mac.

    PCI Express is the technology that links all the high-performance components in a Mac. And it’s built into Thunderbolt, which means you can get PCI Express speed outside the box.

    Thunderbolt gives you up to 10 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.

    What more can you ask for other than an included hardware RAID controller?

    There's the rub, you better like your data just a little (default is five drive RAID-0) and safe elsewhere, or make do with the odd number of drives (3 in RAID-0 and 2 in a mirror set, or 4 in 2 mirror sets with a "spare"...

    ...or use something like MacZFS if you're brave.

Quiet you wont even know it is working except the lights on the front and back light up but no noise. I have the 10T and the speeds are unbelievable comapred to usb3. the thunderbolt is supper fast. I do alot of picture editing with Photoshop CS6 and there is almost no wait time, you give it the commands and it is done. Search time is none existent. Dont know how they hold up to long term use but for now they are flawless and operate just as described, even setting up the Raid array is so easy my pet lizard could do it.

I am very pleased with that, as I share a small office with a coworker and this unit is my main data storage device. The Thunderbolt connection makes a tremendous difference to transfer speeds, it's very fast. I run it with FCP X and it totally rocks.
