LaCie 8TB 2big Quadra USB 3.0 - 9000317
LaCie's 2big Quadra drives are now compatible with USB 3.0 and UAS, optimizing performance on your Mac or PC system. Its two 7200rpm hard drives, preconfigured for RAID 0, provide transfer speeds of up to 210Mb/s! More than twice as fast as FireWire 800 interfaces, and up to six times faster than the previous generation USB 2.0, 2big Quadra USB 3.0 will allow you to finish your backups and file transfers in record time. You can play back multiple HD video streams, and enjoy more responsive photo library browsing. 2big Quadra still has interface options, including FireWire 800 and backwards compatibility for FireWire 400 and USB 2.0, so connectivity issues will never slow you down. You can also daisy chain these drives with older external storage devices and import data directly.
2big Quadra USB 3.0 also features RAID 1 and hot-swappable disks, meaning your data will be safe even if a drive should fail. Pop in a new drive without switching off the device, and you also won't lose any data if an interface or power cable accidentally gets knocked loose in the middle of a data transfer. Product also includes software with even more extensive data protection, for file-level and even system-level backup and restore. It is Time Machine™ and Windows 7 Backup compatible.
Innovative heat-dissipating aluminum casing, a completely redesigned fan, and jumbo heat exhausts help to ensure long-term reliability by preventing the drive from overheating. The new fan design pulls heat away from internal components while being 50% quieter than previous generations. This fan is also thermo-regulated, controlling its speed according to ambient temperature. Since the fans work more efficiently, they generate less noise and larger air holes also help to reduce sound, making the 2big Quadra ideal even in creative environments that are extremely noise-sensitive. It even features an Eco mode that puts the disks to sleep after a certain time period of inactivity, helping to reduce power consumption and further preventing the drive from getting too hot.
