NAB 2019: New LaCie 2big RAID Array


When it comes to selecting a RAID array, there are a lot of options to sift through. Depending on your needs, you’ll need to decide on the number of bays, the amount of pre-installed storage, and the type of connectivity. For users whose requirements are less intensive, consider the LaCie 2big 2-Bay USB 3.1 Type-C RAID Array. The 2big features two SATA 3.5" drive bays and is available in capacities of 4TB, 8TB, and 16TB, with the storage evenly split between the two drive bays, which come pre-installed with Seagate IronWolf Pro 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Enterprise-class hard drives. The 2big connects to your host system using its 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-C interface and provides data transfer speeds of up to 440 MB/s. Its USB Type-C interface may also be used with Thunderbolt 3 hosts, and included is a USB cable, an external power supply, and a limited 5-year warranty with data-recovery services.
