  • Overview

    The LaCie 10TB 2big Quadra USB 3.0 2-Bay RAID Array Drive is a dual bay RAID enclosure that features 2x 2TB hard drives, running at 7200 rpm with a 32MB cache. The external enclosure also features USB 3.0/2.0 and FireWire 800/400 connectivity, giving you the flexibility and options to attach this unit to older PCs and Macs.

    USB 3.0 Speed
    The Lacie 2big Quadra now features USB 3.0 and UAS compatibility. The two drives run at 7200rpm and are preconfigured in RAID 0 to provide up to 210MB/s transfer speed on PCs or late-model Macs. The hardware RAID controller ensures sustained performance and prevents dropped frames, working at twice the speed of Firewire and six times the speed of USB 2.0
    Connectivity and Compatibility
    The LaCie 2big Quadra is compatible with almost any Mac or PC. You can even daisy chain older external storage devices or A/V peripherals in order to import data directly. The backwards compatability allows the 2big to connect to almost any computer, even with USB 2.0
    Data Protection
    The LaCie 2big Quadra features RAID 1 and hot-swappable disks, so your data is kept safe even if a drive fails. Simply swap in a new disk without switching off the device. You also won't lose any data if, during a file transfer, someone trips over the interface or power cable.
    Dual Cooling System
    Lacie's new redsigned cooling system will keep your 2big from overheating and will increase its lifespan. The system consists of three key components: a heat-dissipating aluminum casing, a redesigned fan, and jumbo heat exhausts. For the enclosure, its solid-aluminum heat sink design provides 60% more surface area than flat designs, diverting and dissipating heat more efficiently. Its new magnetic levitation fan generates zero vibration or friction pulling heat away from the internal components while being 50% quieter than previous generations.
    Eco Mode
    The LaCie 2big Quadra also features an Eco mode that puts the hard disks to sleep after a period of inactivity. Using this mode will help prevent overheating and will help the drive last longer.

    Comments : 

    * Adapter cable (sold separately from www.lacie.com/accessories) required. File speeds limited to FireWire 400 speeds.
    ** Maximum interface transfer rate = theoretical bus bandwidth, whereas burst transfer rate = maximum drive speed. Tests conducted in RAID0 with 3TB hard disks. Speeds depend on the RAID mode selected, and average transfer rates vary from one computer to another and from one drive to another.
    ^ Windows XP®32-bit does not support volumes with capacities exceeding 2TB.
    1TB (Terabyte) = 1000GB. 1 GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending upon operating environment (typically 5-10% less).
