LaCie 1 big Dock External HDD Overview

By B&H Photo's

The 18TB 1big Dock from LaCie has been designed as an epicenter for 4K workflows. It combines a 18TB Seagate IronWolf Pro 7200 rpm SATA 3.5" hard drive that delivers data transfer speeds of up to 280 MB/s with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a USB 3.0 Type-A port, a DisplayPort 1.4 output for 8K / 60 Hz, 4K / 120 Hz, 1080p, and 720p video, and SD and CompactFlash card slots. Operational temperatures will stay cool, thanks to an aluminum enclosure and thermoregulated fan.

While one of the Thunderbolt 3 ports is used to connect the 1big Dock to your compatible system running at least Windows 10 or macOS 10.12, the other can be used to daisy-chain up to six additional devices or provide up to 70W of charging power. In order to receive all 70W of charging power, your laptop must be plugged in using its power supply. Otherwise, you'll get 45W of power, or 30W if you're daisy chaining multiple devices.

LaCie's 18TB 1big Dock includes a 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 cable and an external power supply. Users will have access to LaCie's Toolkit software suite and will also be able to redeem a one-month membership to Adobe's Creative Cloud All Apps plan. Protection is provided by a limited 5-year warranty with a Rescue Data Recovery Services plan. If you ever need to remove the hard drive from the 1big, simply open the removable drawer.

The Adobe Creative Cloud All Apps membership is redeemable during product registration until the date of expiration. A network connection and Adobe ID are required. This is only available to users 13 and older and is not available in all countries. See Adobe's site for more info.
