Designed to protect immense amounts of 4K footage, along with the speed to edit 4K video, the 6big 12TB 6-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array from LaCie offers up to 12TB of storage split over six hot-swappable 2TB 3.5" IronWolf Pro NAS hard drives, each of which utilizes one of the array's SATA III 6 Gb/s drive bays. Each drive is equipped with a minimum cache of 128MB and a rotational speed of 7200 rpm, both of which help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers. The array itself is equipped with two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports and one 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 port, each of which use USB Type-C connectivity. For those whose system does not have a USB Type-C port, the 6big is compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 via an included USB Type-C to Type-A adapter cable.
The 6big supports a variety of hardware-controlled RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60, each of which offers speed, data redundancy, or a combination of both. Using Thunderbolt 3, RAID 0 supports read and write speeds of up to 1400 MB/s, while a RAID 5 configuration supports read speeds up to 1200 MB/s and write speeds up to 1150 MB/s. When using a USB 3.1 connection, RAID 0 reads and write speeds can go as high as 400 MB/s, while a RAID 5 configuration yields read and write speeds as high as 350 MB/s. Please bear in mind that actual data rates may vary depending on operating environment and other factors. Also, please be aware that RAID 0 does not support hot-swapping.
The 6big 12TB 6-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array operates using a 100-240V 250W power supply at 50/60 Hz, can be used in 24x7 operating environments, and supports storage expansion via daisy-chaining. The array also supports one 5K display or, via daisy-chaining, dual 4K displays. Its processing and display power will allow users to edit multiple streams of ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes 444 XQ, and uncompressed 10/12-bit HD video. Included with this RAID array is a power cable, a Thunderbolt 3 cable, a USB 3.1 Type-C cable, and a USB 3.1 Type-C to USB 3.0/2.0 Type-A cable. Protection is provided by a limited 5-year warranty.

Please note that because Thunderbolt 3's 40 Gb/s of bandwidth is shared, daisy-chaining a display will affect the maximum read and write speeds of the 6big.
