The LaCie 2TB Bolt 3 Thunderbolt 3 External SSD sports two 1TB M.2 SSDs and two Thunderbolt 3 ports to quickly store content as well as edit hi-res videos smoothly. The two PCIe 3.0 x2 SSDs are configured in a RAID 0 array to deliver up to 2800 MB/s read and 2200 MB/s write speeds. To support these fast speeds, LaCie has outfitted the Bolt 3 with Thunderbolt 3 technology that offers speeds of up to 40 Gb/s. In addition, this technology features a reversible USB Type-C connector, which lets you connect the Bolt 3 to an included USB-C cable on the first try.

LaCie has designed the Bolt 3 with an aluminum enclosure for durability and heat dissipation. To improve cooling performance, a thermo-regulated blower and heat sink are on board. There's also a magnetic stand so you can display the Bolt 3 at an angle and easily detach the Bolt 3 for transport.

Fast I/O

For the Bolt 3, LaCie harnessed the performance potential of the Thunderbolt 3 I/O and paired it with fast SSDs. With a pair of M.2 PCIe SSDs striped together into a 2TB volume, the result is speeds of up to 2800 MB/s.

USB-C

Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt performance to USB-C (USB Type-C) connectivity at speeds of up to 40 Gb/s, creating a single compact port that does it all. Thunderbolt 3 permits daisy chaining and provides four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2, while also supplying power.

Level up Your Workspace

You can daisy chain one USB 3.1 or up to five Thunderbolt 3 devices, which include dual 4K displays and even power a compatible laptop—all through a single USB-C cable connected to your computer. With two 4K displays, you can spread out your workspace by dedicating one display to your timeline and the other to previewing 4K footage.

Magnetized Cable Door

The magnetized cable door stays closed during normal use to conceal the interface and power supply ports, but swings open to enable easy access.

Removable Display Stand

The stand securely docks the Bolt 3 with neodymium magnets and detaches for easy transport.

I received my LaCie Bolt 3 yesterday from B&H ...

I received my LaCie Bolt 3 yesterday from B&H Everything is working great!!!! The speed of this drive is like nothing I have ever seen. My question is: Does anyone know if it has an on/off switch? I’ve just been leaving it on or plugged in to the A/C in the wall after I turn my computer off. I’ve been looking everywhere for info addressing this and I cannot find anything.
Asked by: Anonymous
Hello, The LaCie Bolt 3 does not have an ON/OFF switch or button. There is no reason that you can't continue to leave the unit on, or the easiest way to have the Bolt 3 power down is to eject the drive then disconnect the Thunderbolt cable at the computer, the A/C adapter does not need to be unplugged. Regards R

I hope this is not too lame of a question but can this drive be stacked on top of other drives or does it have to stay on this magnetic stand that it comes with?
Asked by: Gary
Hello, The LaCie Bolt 3 can be used with or without the magnetic stand. Stacking the Bolt 3 for use without the stand will not effect the performance. Regards

question

Can I use it with Thunderbolt 2 computer?
Asked by: fatih a.
This was taken from Lacie. https://www.lacie.com/ca/en/products/bolt3/#features Compatible with Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 It's possible to connect the Bolt3 to devices with previous generations of Thunderbolt. Just use a Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapter (sold separately). https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MMEL2AM/A/thunderbolt-3-usb-c-to-thunderbolt-2-adapter

question

A review I read elsewhere said they were not able to use this as a boot drive. Can the Bolt 3 be used as a boot drive?
Asked by: John W.
There isn't any technical reason why it couldn't be used as a boot drive as long as it is used with a compatible device.
