LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2
If you’ve been waiting for an insanely fast solid state drive for use in RAW 4K or 3D video editing—and let’s be honest, who hasn’t?—LaCie’s Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 ($1,299) is ready to blaze through your files and wallet at the same time. Palm-sized, beautiful, and promising real-world 1,375MB/second transfer speeds, the drive contains dual RAID 0/1 PCIe SSDs, cooled by a larger but quieter fan than before, with a Mac Pro-matching aluminum enclosure for heat dissipation. While the 1-Terabyte peak capacity is unquestionably low for the price tag, LaCie bets that professional users with thin MacBook Pros will appreciate the size and speed while they’re on the go.
With average read speeds of 1,375MB/second and write speeds of 1,180MB/s, Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 is fast on its own; it also has two bi-directional Thunderbolt 2 ports and can daisy chain up to six devices on Intel’s 20Gb/second Thunderbolt 2 interface, with enough bandwidth to handle both 4K editing and a 4K display. Unlike some small Thunderbolt drives, it requires and includes an external power supply, as well as a stand to keep it upright on a desk. A Thunderbolt cable is thankfully in the box, as well.
