Product Overview Designed for photo, video, and audio production, graphic design, backup, and archiving, the 4TB 2big 2-Bay USB 3.1 Type-C RAID Array from LaCie has dual 3.5" SATA drive bays, each of which is equipped with a 2TB IronWolf Pro 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Enterprise-class hard drive, for a total storage capacity of 4TB.

This RAID may also be used with Thunderbolt 3 hosts and is cooled using its aluminum enclosure with improved heat dissipation, as well as a thermoregulated Noctua cooling fan. Included is a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C cable, a USB 3.0 Type-C to Type-A cable, an external power supply, and a limited 5-year warranty with data recovery services.

Product Overview If you've been looking for a powerful and versatile Thunderbolt 3 docking station that restores many of the ports and connectivity that have been removed on modern day laptops, take a look at the 8TB 2big Dock 2-Bay RAID Array Thunderbolt 3 from LaCie. The 2big Thunderbolt 3 Dock delivers a storage capacity of 8TB, which is comprised of two 4TB Seagate IronWolf Pro 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" enterprise-class hard drives. While the 2big is compatible with Windows 10 and macOS 10.12, it comes formatted as HFS+ for Mac, and is configured as hardware-controlled RAID 0, which provides performance gains, but no data redundancy. Also supported is RAID 1 and JBOD.

The back of the 2big is equipped with two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports and one 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-C port, all of which allow you to interface with your host system at speeds up to 440 MB/s. The Thunderbolt 3 interface can also be used to connect two 4K displays or one 5K display, as well as daisy-chain up to five additional Thunderbolt 3 peripherals together. If you need to power your laptop, the USB Type-C port provides 27W of power, while the Thunderbolt 3 interface provides 15W of power for charging USB Type-C laptops. Additionally, there is a DisplayPort interface that supports 720p, 1080p, and 4K displays.

On its front, the 2big has a built-in USB 3.0 Type-A port, which can charge your USB device or connect a USB drive or digital camera for offloading files, as well as a CompactFlash and SD card slots, allowing you to directly download content from your drone, DSLR, GoPro, and more. This dock can store hundreds of hours of 4K footage and hundreds of thousands of raw images.

The LaCie 8TB 2big Thunderbolt 3 Dock includes a Thunderbolt 3 / USB Type-C cable and an external power supply. If you want to use this dock with your USB 3.0 Type-A system, a USB 3.0 Type-C to Type-A cable is also included. Protection is provided by a limited 5-year warranty.

Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 are only supported when Apple's Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter is used with systems running macOS 10.12 Sierra or later.

The Heartbeat of Your Workflow The LaCie 2big Dock simplifies and centralizes your desktop by connecting your laptop to your compatible peripherals using a single cable.

Dual Thunderbolt 3 Ports Power your laptop while simultaneously daisy chaining up to 5 additional LaCie 2big drives or other Thunderbolt 3 or USB Type-C solutions.

USB 3.0 Type-C Port Universal compatibility with USB Type-C and USB 3.0 Type-A computers via the included adapter cable.

USB 3.0 Type-A Hub Using the front-facing USB 3.0 Type-A hub, charge your phone or connect a shuttle drive or digital camera to offload footage or files.

SD and CF Card Slots Directly ingest files from your drone, DSLR, GoPro, and other devices with the front-facing memory card slots.

DisplayPort Connect to high-resolution 720, 1080p, and 4K displays.

Delivering Robust Performance With up to 8TB of capacity for a massive file library and Thunderbolt 3 transfer speeds of up to 440 MB/s, the LaCie 2big Dock is built to keep you creating.

Transfer Material Quickly Transfer 1 hour of footage in around 1 minute, depending on the operating environment and other factors such as RAID mode, RAID configuration, chosen interface, and drive capacity.

Compatible with Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 (Mac Only) Macs with Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 ports can experience high-end transfer rates with LaCie Thunderbolt 3 professional solutions. Apple's Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter (sold separately) provides a user-friendly connection between LaCie Thunderbolt 3 solutions and Macs running macOS 10.12 Sierra or later with earlier generations of Thunderbolt technology.

Tough. Ready. Scalable. Designed with the creative professional in mind, the LaCie 2big Dock features Seagate IronWolf Pro drives and RAID optimization for improved power management and reliability. Thanks to the LaCie RAID Manager, you can monitor your system's health with audible alarm and email alerts in the case of failure and warning events.
