Posted on Friday, September 07 2012 @ 10:03:35 CEST by

LaCie 2big and 4big Quadra with USB 3.0
LaCie introduced new 2big and 4big Quadra multi-bay RAID storage solutions with USB 3.0 support. Thanks to UAS and 7200RPM HDDs, these storage units can achieve transfer speeds of up to 210MB/s and 245MB/s, respectively.
Today LaCie announced that its professional 2big and 4big Quadra multi-bay RAID solutions, designed by Neil Poulton, now feature USB 3.0 technology. LaCie completely re-engineered these external storage solutions for optimized performance with new Mac computers. Thanks to UAS (USB-Attached SCSI Protocol) compatibility and 7200rpm hard drives, these products reach speeds up to 210MB/s and 245MB/s respectively. With these speeds the user can transfer 10GB of data in less than one minute.

The LaCie 2big Quadra USB 3.0 and LaCie 4big Quadra USB 3.0 are ideal storage solutions for intensive content creation, secure backup, or massive desktop storage. With speeds twice as fast as Firewire 800 these products help professionals get their work done faster. Video editors can play back multiple HD video streams at the same time with Final Cut Pro X™ or Premiere®. Additionally, photographers can browse large photo libraries and edit in Apeture® or Lightroom® 4 without delay.

The LaCie 2big and 4big Quadra offer seamless cross-platform compatibility in any work environment. With USB 3.0 these products are a great companion for a new MacBook Pro®, MacBook Air® or PC. Backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 means the user can connect the product to any standard computer. Plus, two FireWire 800 connections let the user daisy chain other external storage or A/V peripherals.

Since effective cooling is a critical factor in hard disk reliability these products feature state of the art cooling systems. The LaCie 2big Quadra's custom designed cooling system includes an innovative heat-dissipating aluminum casing, a completely redesigned fan, and jumbo heat exhausts. The LaCie 4big Quadra incorporates the ultra-reliable Noctua cooling system that offers superior pressure and airflow performance. Additionally, these products are specifically engineered to be ultra-quiet, which make them ideal for even the most noise-sensitive working environments.
