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.

Please Note: 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.

    8TB 2big Dock 2-Bay RAID Array Thunderbolt 3 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad USB 3.1 Port out of the Box Just had this arrive from B&H and the USB 3.1 port on the back does not work. I verified that it was in fact the port (Have multiple 3.1 devices that all work on a different 3.1 hub) that was bad and am very disappointed that this does not work.� I have contacted LaCie for a swap. Rather disappointing for a new product lineup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from B&H and La Cie Tech Support Very Very Good I initially wrote a review of the 8TB RAID drive when I had power problems (the drives powered OFF and ON unexpectedly). Based on my reading at the time, I thought the drives may have had a power supply problem. B&H stepped me thru initial troubleshooting and referred me to La Cie for additional help. La Cie helped me diagnose the problem as the fault of a defective 3rd party cable -- which was the last thing that I would suspect. These TB-3 RAID drives- are great (I have two of them). I am using an Apple cable now, and all is well. Needless to say I recommend staying away from 3rd party cables!!! Both B&H and La Cie tech support are VERY GOOD. They stick with you until the issue is resolved, and they listen to you. I got several call backs from La Cie during the process. No long waits on hold. And most important: PROBLEM RESOLVED!
