The LaCie 8TB 2big Thunderbolt 2 / USB3.0 has dual Thunderbolt 2 ports capable of editing up to 4K video. Unlike a lot of the other dual Thunderbolt drives on the market the LaCie 2big also has an additional USB3 port meaning it can be used with non Thunderbolt computers. This sets it apart from other drives on the market which only have dual Thunderbolt ports. The USB3 port is also backwards compatible to USB2.

LaCie RAID Options

The RAID modes available on the 2Big Thunderbolt are RAID 0 (for speed), RAID 1 (safe) or JBOD (drives appear separately). For more information on RAID settings please read the LaCie RAID guide.

Cable Protection

The LaCie 2big has a hidden cable lock on the rear of the unit to prevent accidental disconnection of the power supply or computer cable thus avoiding potential disaster whilst in the middle of editing.


LaCie also ship the unit with a software bundle including backup software for MAC/PC, hard drive management software (to monitor the health of the drive) and AES 256 encryption software (to protect your data from third party theft). This needs to be installed when setting up the drive.

Finally the drive comes with the standard 3 year warranty which can be extended with the warranty upgrade – info’ here.

Overall we think the newly designed LaCie 2big is a highly recommended unit in the RAID/TBOLT2 market.


With the redesigned 2big, instead of aiming for incremental, LaCie shot for revolutionary. Its all-new industrial design demolishes the status quo and sets a new standard for versatility and reliability. The LaCie 2big also features unbeatable Thunderbolt 2 technology and hardware RAID for sensational performance. 3 Years Warranty
