LaCie 2big Thunderbolt 2 Review Discussion

4 posts in this topic

Granted, the LaCie is awfully fast for a 2-disk storage device, but how can you recommend it when there are other units that are faster and cost the same or less? For example, OWC's Thunderbay IV/4. I believe the 12TB version goes for around $1,000 as well, and in RAID 5 attains 534 / 563 write/read MB/sec, which is quite a bit better performance for the same money (if I'm not mistaken).

Your comparing to a 4-bay to a 2-bay, so yes performance will increase as you add more drives. You can of course get a cheaper 2-bay option, but LaCie buyers aren't price sensitive. They want the build and quality that goes with LaCie products.

I’m one of them. For my office I prefer a quieter DAS than a cheaper one.
