LaCie 2big Quadra USB 3.0

2-Bay RAID | USB 3.0 | FireWire 800

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 for a Workflow Boost
Now with USB 3.0 and UAS compatibility, the LaCie 2big Quadra delivers optimized performance for PC and Mac. Its two 7200rpm professional hard disks preconfigured in RAID 0 provide up to 210MB/s* on PCs or late-model Macs. The hardware RAID controller ensures sustained performance and prevents dropped frames. More than twice as fast as FireWire 800 (up to six times the speed of USB 2.0), the LaCie 2big Quadra will transform your workflow. And its massive capacity makes it the only storage you'll need for all your projects. Backups and file transfers finish much faster. Play back multiple HD video streams in Final Cut Pro X™ or Adobe®Premiere®. Enjoy more responsive photo library browsing in Aperture™ or Lightroom™.

Universal Connectivity for Compatibility
Don't let your project get derailed by external drive/computer incompatibility. With its multiple interfaces, the LaCie 2big Quadra is the perfect match for any Mac or PC. With FireWire 800, import your data from your old computer even faster, if your old computer is compatible. You can even daisy chain older external storage devices or A/V peripherals in order to import data directly, hassle-free. Thanks to backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and FireWire 400**, you can literally connect the LaCie 2big Quadra to any standard computer of any era. Whatever the computer you use, the LaCie 2big Quadra has the right connection for it.
