Excerpt: Although this is the first LaCie NAS I've reviewed, I'm familiar with the company's products. My local Fry's Electronics carries the brand. Once a month I browse the store looking for potential review products and to get an inside retail scoop on product release dates. I always saw the LaCie products as elegant and a bit famine; unlike the brute force QNAP and Thecus units that I have so many of in the office.
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt review: Fast connectivity and maximum capacity
3 June 2013
Excerpt: The 5big Thunderbolt is part of LaCie’s range of multi-bay storage devices. It’s identical in looks to others in the 5big series, including the 5big NAS - a network version with USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and Ethernet connectivity. The 5big Thunderbolt sacrifices all that for the speed of Thunderbolt. It’s a sacrifice worth making.
Plug and play out of the box, hot swappable drives, upto 20TB storage
