Kool Tools: LaCie Little Big Disk
LaCie announced the Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 recently at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. One of the first storage solutions enabled by Thunderbolt 2, it looks to be the fastest portable storage solution on the market.
It delivers speeds up to 1375MB/s, which is several times faster than any mobile USB 3.0 hard drive. In addition to its industry-leading performance, LaCie worked with designer Neil Poulton to bring a cutting-edge look to the product. For the first time, the Little Big Disk features a sleek, black finish to its fully aluminum enclosure.
Perfect for no-compromise video professionals, the new LaCie Little Big Disk permits streaming and editing of 4K or 3D video while in the field. It's powered by a set of 500GB PCIe Gen 2 SSDs in RAID 0. LaCie optimized the Little Big Disk’s interior design to improve the cooling efficiency, while keeping it as silent as possible. By incorporating a thermoregulated fan, it only turns on when necessary and produces nearly zero noise.
The LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 will be available for purchase in the first quarter of 2014 through LaCie’s resellers and LaCie.com. A Thunderbolt cable included. The LaCie Little Big Disk is protected by a three-year limited warranty.
