The LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 enables creative professionals to stream and edit either 4K or 3D video, whether in the office or on the road. The palm-sized device boasts speeds of up to 1,375 MB/s in addition to the connective power of Thunderbolt 2. With this speed, videographers can work directly from RAW files, enjoying full quality from footage and seeing edits in real time, while photographers can edit massive photo libraries of RAW files, in the field, with no lag time.
Weighing it at just 620 g, the LaCie Little Big Disk is small enough to fit into a laptop bag or backpack. Designed for easy portable use, Little Big Disk enables you to transfer large volumes of footage in minutes instead of hours. It also boasts an effective interior cooling system that's quieter than ever and will prevent the drive from overheating.
RAID for speed or security
Use Disk Utility on your Mac to configure the LaCie Little Big Disk into a RAID array that suits your needs. You can leave it as a striped RAID set (RAID 0) to maximise speed and capacity for large file storage and fast transfers, or you can set it up as a mirrored RAID set (RAID 1), which provides data protection if one disk fails.
About Thunderbolt 2
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.
With Thunderbolt 2 now built into the new Mac Pro and MacBook Pro with Retina display, you can connect up to three 4K displays at once. Thunderbolt 2 gives you up to 20 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.

Very happy with this drive. …
