Product Information

  • Overview

    With the LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 hard drive, you can stream and edit either 4K or 3D video—and you can do it while working in the field. It gives you speeds up to 1,375 MB/s* in a palm-sized device thanks to the remarkable power of Thunderbolt 2. The drive also incorporates a set of PCIe SSDs (solid state drives) preconfigured in RAID 0.

    Thunderbolt 2 speeds for the 4K era

    With this kind of speed, you can work directly from RAW files, getting full quality from footage and seeing edits in real time. No need to first convert footage into a lower resolution. Photographers can browse and edit massive photo libraries of thousands of RAW files, in the field, with zero lag time. If you use, Avid Pro Tools you'll notice smooth audio mixing, even when working with hundreds of tracks simultaneously. Thunderbolt 2 also lets you daisy chain up to five LaCie Little Big Disks (with the included cable) plus a 4K display to your Mac. And it even uses the same cables and connectors as first-generation Thunderbolt**.

    Featherweight powerhouse

    The LaCie Little Big Disk still weighs just 1.4 pounds (620g) and fits in a laptop bag or a backpack. It’s the only solution that packs this much power into such a small package. With 1TB of capacity, it’s the perfect storage field companion to the new Mac Pro, which is more portable than ever. Daisy chain multiple LaCie Little Big disks to unleash the full potential of Apple’s powerful new hardware. Capture gigabytes of footage on a LaCie Little Big Disk in the field, and then transfer them to the post-production team in minutes instead of hours. Whereas before, transferring 250GB would have taken a couple of hours, now it takes less than 10 minutes. You could also use the LaCie Little Big Disk as working storage for 3D editing, and then back up final projects by daisy chaining to RAID storage.

    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 maximize speed and capacity for large file storage and fast transfers. Or set it up as a mirrored RAID set (RAID 1), which provides data protection if one disk fails. It even supports JBOD, so you can see and use each drive independently.

    Reliable design for professionals

    LaCie reengineered the Little Big Disk to be even more reliable and much quieter than ever, so you can focus on the creative process. Since overheating is the primary cause of hard drive failure, cooling is essential for reliability. The LaCie Little Big Disk’s interior was therefore completely redesigned to improve its heat dissipation system. As a result, the fan is only occasionally necessary. And the fan itself is now much quieter because it is larger and adjusts its speed according to temperature. The net effect of the cooling system is a nearly silent product with a longer lifespan.

    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 Gb/s 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.

    Thunderbolt 2

    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 Gb/s 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.

I use it as my scratch disk in Final Cut Pro and it I am still amazed at how well it performs. On top of its near GB/s speed, it is whisper quiet sitting next to the Mac Pro. I couldn't be happier and would definitely recommend this drive to any owners of the new Mac Pro or current MacBook Pros.

This device has dead simple setup and the speed simply rocks! I've been doing stuff with video that I'd not considered doing before. Love it.
