The LaCie 2big Quadra is the most complete 2-disk RAID solution for digital libraries, creative pro and office workstations that need storage/backup capacity, speed, and advanced data protection. It's easy to use, and comes with two extractable, lockable and hot-swappable disks in RAID 1 mode. With burst transfer rates as high as 165MB/s (eSATA 3Gb/s) in RAID 0, the 2big Quadra is ideal for high speed-demanding applications like audio/video projects (DV and SD video playback or 2D/3D imaging). It functions as a complete solution for data protection, and comes with advanced backup software with computer recovery options: Genie Backup Manager Pro for Windows and Intego Backup Manager Pro for Mac users. The sturdy, aluminum heat sink design-with 60% more surface area for heat dissipation-keeps it quiet and safe. This versatile solution offers various space-saving configurations-upright, horizontal, stacked, or rack-mounted. The LaCie Shortcut Button on the front launches any backup or library application of your choice in just one push.
