LaCie Thunderbolt Series 2TB Little Big Disk External Hard Drive - 9000107
- The New Era for Speed
The LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt™* Series heralds a new era for storage
performance. Featuring a preconfigured RAID0 striped set with optional hard
disks or SSDs through the 10Gb/s Thunderbolt interface, it delivers astonishing
transfer rates. Reach read speeds of up to 480MB/s with the SSD model, and
up to 190MB/s with the hard disk model**. Now you can truly get the power
of fibre channel rackmount storage—in a portable solution!
You can even daisy chain multiple Little Big Disks together to increase overall
transfer rates. The more products you chain together, the higher performance
you get. Daisy chain four Little Big Disks with SSDs to maximize Thunderbolt
interface capabilities and reach transfer rates of around 800MB/s (up to 782MB/s
with the hard disk version).
All in all, the Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series makes it possible to 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
- Next Generation Interface
Thunderbolt technology is the most flexible interface ever created. It permits
daisy chaining, so you only need a single cable (sold separately from apple)
to connect multiple Thunderbolt peripherals to your computer. You can even
connect up to six compatible devices together. Each Thunderbolt cable provides
two channels with 10Gb/s of bandwidth, one dedicated for data and the other
for video. Thunderbolt is even mini-DisplayPort compatible. This means you
can connect, for example, your high-end LaCie 324i display and your Little
Big Disk Thunderbolt Series to your Mac via a single Thunderbolt cable. What’s
more, data and video signals can be pushed and pulled simultaneously, so you
can read and write data at the same time without reducing performance
- Featherweight Powerhouse
The Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series weighs just 1.4 lbs., making it a portable
powerhouse. It fits in the palm of your hand, features its own cooling system,
and can be connected to displays and laptops. Opt for the hard disk version
and get up to 2TB*** storage capacity per unit (up to 240GB with SSD version).
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. They simply download their footage directly from a compatible camera
to the Little Big Disk to start the editing process on the field. The SSD
version will be popular with post-production teams thanks to its support for
multiple uncompressed video streams and multichannel audio.
- Aluminum Reliability and Security
The Little Big Disk’s advanced dual cooling system ensures safe operation
and long-term reliability by keeping the internal components cool. Its solid-aluminum
casing provides 60% more surface area, which diverts and dissipates heat more
efficiently. It also features a high-performance fan for superior pressure
and airflow. For energy conservation, its front power button even lets you
turn off the product without breaking a daisy chain.
