Product Information

  • Overview

    The LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series hard drive heralds a new era for storage performance. Featuring a preconfigured RAID0 striped set with 5400rpm hard drives, it delivers astonishing transfer rates of up to 190 MB/s.*

    You can even daisy chain multiple Little Big Disks together to increase overall transfer rates. The more products you chain together, the higher the performance you get. Daisy chain two Little Big Disks to maximize interface capabilities and reach transfer rates of around 782 MB/s.

    With the Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series you can acquire, edit, and play back multiple uncompressed A/V streams directly from the drive with ultimate ease and portability, no matter the size or resolution of the content.

    RAID for speed or security

    Use Disk Utility on your Mac OS to configure the LaCie Little Big Disk 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. Alternatively, configure it as a striped RAID set (RAID 0) to maximize speed and capacity for large file storage and fast transfers.

    Featherweight powerhouse

    Weighing just 1.4 pounds/0.64 kilograms, the drive is a portable powerhouse. It fits in the palm of your hand, features its own cooling system, and can either be connected to a display or a MacBook Pro. While presenting their work to a client, photographers can browse smoothly through photos in their digital libraries while experiencing zero lag time. Away from the studio, videographers can dramatically reduce the time to publish a project.

    Aluminum reliability and security

    Enclosed in LaCie's classic d2 casing designed by Neil Poulton, the drive's resilient aluminum armor protects your data inside whether it's in the field or in transit. The unique heat sink design provides 60% more surface area, which draws heat away from the internal components, keeping it cool and safe at all times. A front power button allows you to turn off the Little Big Disk without breaking a daisy chain, always with energy conservation in mind.

    Don't even hesitate, buy this device. I've seen transfer speeds approaching 2 gigabytes every 10 seconds. The speeds are truly j Don't even hesitate, buy this device. I've seen transfer speeds approaching 2 gigabytes every 10 seconds. The speeds are truly jawdropping for a device of this size, and if you daisy chain two together you can nearly double that, and if you string 3 together you can finally saturate the thunderbolt bus (approaching 800Megabytes/sec (and THAT's hard to do). And these aren't theoretical maximums like USB, you can really see this transfer rate.

    The Thunderbolt cables may be overpriced but the bus is the real deal. You can get refurb's of this for a little cheaper but bottom line if you want peripheral storage at internal speed, this is the ticket. Even your Time Machine backups will go at light speed.

    My suggestion, make this your main archive drive, and connect some cheaper/slower (USB3 etc) drive as a failsafe that can be scheduled to backup this drive every night. Should be awfully hard to have data loss in that arrangement, yet still have onboard SSD speed access to your data at all time. This literally is fast enough to run multiple uncompressed streams of HD video and is fast enough for you video encoders.

The might be acceptable for a drive next to an already-noisy desktop computer, but if you plan to use this drive with your nearly-silent laptop, then prepare for a new source of annoying noise in your life.
