Product Overview The LaCie 2big Thunderbolt2 8TB is a professional dual-disk hardware RAID external hard drive built for creative professionals. With a stylish new design, Thunderbolt2 connectivity and selectable RAID modes, the 2big Thunderbolt2 is the perfect desktop hard drive for those needing flexibility, speed and style.

This 8TB model has 2x 4TB drives and you can select between RAID0 for extreme transfer speeds up to 360MB/s or RAID1 if you require fail-safe data protection with speeds of up to 180MB/s. The 2big also supports JBOD, which gives you the option to mount two separate 3TB storage volumes on your computer. What's more its hardware RAID so you can use the drive across multiple machines and there's a simple dial on the back to select the RAID mode you want.

It not only supports Thunderbolt2 with dual ports for daisy chaining up to six devices together from the same Thunderbolt port but USB 3.0 too for ultimate flexibility across Macs and PCs.
