Designed for ultra-slim notebooks, PCIe SSDs are 75%smaller, 91% lighter, and up to 2.5 times faster than traditional SATA SSDs.
With this kind of speed, videographers can work directlyfrom RAW files, getting full quality from footage and seeing edits in realtime. No need to first convert footage into a lower resolution. Photographerscan browse and edit massive photo libraries of thousands of RAW files, in thefield, with zero lag time. Avid Pro Tools® users will notice incredibly smoothaudio mixing, even when working with hundreds of tracks simultaneously.
Thunderbolt 2 Speeds for the 4K Era
Until recently, the idea of achieving 1,375MB/s in apalm-sized device has been pure science fiction. LaCie just brought it down toearth with the new Little Big Disk, which features the incredible power ofThunderbolt 2. To squeeze the most out of this potential, it also packs a setof PCIe SSDs preconfigured in RAID 0.
The Most Powerful I/O, Reinvented
Thunderbolt technology redefined external storage with itsspeed and versatility for bandwidth-intensive applications. Thunderbolt 2builds on those advances, doubling speed potential to 20Gb/s and enablingsimultaneous RAW 4K video file editing and display. And thanks to support forDisplayPort 1.2, connecting to higher-resolution and multiple monitors is nowpossible.

Thunderbolt 2 also continues to support daisy chaining up tosix devices to a computer via a single cable (included in the box). This meansthat professionals can daisy chain up to five LaCie Little Big Disks plus a 4Kdisplay to a computer, bringing capacity, incredible speed, and convenience tothe desktop. Thunderbolt 2 even uses the same cables and connectors as first-generationThunderbolt**.
Capture gigabytes of footage on a LaCie Little Big Disk inthe field, and then transfer them to the post-production team in minutesinstead of hours. Whereas before, transferring 250GB would have taken a coupleof hours, now it takes less than 10 minutes. You could also use the LaCieLittle Big Disk as working storage for 3D editing, and then back up finalprojects by daisy chaining to RAID storage such as the LaCie 2big ThunderboltSeries.
The LaCie Little Big Disk still weighs just 1.4 lbs (620g)and fits in a laptop bag or a backpack. ItÆs the only solution that packs thismuch power into such a small package. With 1TB of capacity, itÆs the perfectstorage 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 ofAppleÆs powerful new hardware.
Choose your mode:
Performance (RAID 0)Security (RAID 1)Capacity (JBOD)
RAID for Speed or Security
Use Disk Utility® on your Mac to configure the LaCie LittleBig Disk into a RAID array that suits your needs. You can leave it as a stripedRAID set (RAID 0) to maximize speed and capacity for large file storage andfast transfers. Or set it up as a mirrored RAID set (RAID 1), which providesdata protection if one disk fails. It even supports JBOD, so you can see anduse each drive independently.
Reliable Design for Professionals
LaCie reengineered the Little Big Disk to be even morereliable and much quieter than ever, so you can focus on the creative process.Since overheating is the primary cause of hard drive failure, cooling isessential for reliability. The LaCie Little Big DiskÆs interior was thereforecompletely redesigned to improve its heat dissipation system. As a result, thefan is only occasionally necessary. And the fan itself is now much quieterbecause it is larger and adjusts its speed according to temperature. The neteffect of the cooling system is a nearly silent product with a longer lifespan.The internal components are enclosed in LaCie's classic d2 casing, designed byNeil Poulton. The resilient aluminum armor protects the data inside whether theproduct is in the field or in transit. And to prevent theft and unauthorizedaccess, the LaCie Little Big Disk is compatible with KensingtonÖ locks andincludes AES 256-bit encryption software. Professional reliability for exactingprofessionals.

* These transfer rates were achieved using AJA System Testwhen connected to a 15" MacBook Pro 2.0Ghz Quad Core and 8GB RAM with 32kblock size. Speeds depend on the RAID mode used, and average transfer rates mayvary from one computer to another and from one product to another.
** To achieve full Thunderbolt 2 bandwidth, connect theproduct to a Thunderbolt 2 port on a computer or device.
