Excerpt: LaCie got almost every thing right with this drive. I love editing up to 4K content and large projects while traveling. Hands down, the best feature of this drive is its storage capacity and speed combined with such a portable size. I rely heavily on this drive and it allows me to get so much more work done because I can take it with me on the run, allowing me to edit during times, I would have just left the project back at the office or at home.
Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Versatile
Excerpt: Very quiet, *fast*, easy to use, comes preformatted for MAC and with the thunderbolt 2 cable included. The only downside is the LED that stays lit when connected to your computer. It's extremely bright, will hurt your eye if you're staring at it, and you can't turn it off. Seriously you can use it as a flash light. Dunno what they were thinking. I had to tape it over, since per their support it's not possible to dim it or turn it off.
Excerpt: I just received the Thunderbolt 2 drive. I waited through a back order from the manufacturer because 1) I have had excellent experiences with LaCie products and 2) The specs on this drive are outstanding. I connected the drive to my Windows laptop and... Nothing.
Summary: Setup: External replacement drive for 2012 iMac 27" OSX 10.9.1 with standard 1tb drive, 32GB RAM, & quad core i5. I'm using it to boot in Raid 0. First let me go over the pros. I'm very pleased with the device, it has a great aesthetic and is so small you can fit it on a iMac shelf (search for iMac shelf on Amazon, there is more then one option) The device's speed is indeed as claimed. I used Blackmagicdesign to test the disk speed (app free through iTunes store).
Summary: This item works as expected - a fast external Thunderbolt-connected SSD. It's also a cute little thing - it's only about as tall as a coffee cup so it packs quite a punch for its size. I also appreciated that it comes with the cable needed for operation and the allen key needed to assemble the thing (you have to screw on the base, that's it).
Summary: I purchased this as I had a spare 512GB, Sata-3, SSD and my MBP only has a Thunderbolt connector. The bottle neck is on the Little Big Disk as the board uses Sata-2, not Sata-3. So I'm never going to fully realize the potential of the Thunderbolt connector down the road with this enclosure. I have a Sata 3-SSD in the enclosure, non-raid, and a regular disk in the other bay. The SSD performs at ~200 MBp/s for for the write and ~240MBp/s for read access.
Summary: TB is not fast screw apple again they over adv. and under perform.... this unit is pretty loud though and TB is not reliable at all, this unit will disconnect and the cables are not robust ( you have to buy from apple) so be warned... not even as fast as my single SSD via esata so that's about the best you can hope for. I bought to edit and it doesn't really help much.. kind of loud....
Excerpt: Lets start with a typical pro and cons: PROS: As you can image 1TB is huge! It can store tons of information and it's great for backing up huge volumns of work. The look great and they look beefy for a reason, because they are a power machine! Lacie comes with a 3 year warranty which is great and gives you someone to go to if you have any problems, of which I've only had a few (and I buy ALOT of these!

Summary: Benutze diese Platte um schnell Video Daten zu überspielen/sichern. Verglichen mit allen bisherigen Erfahrungen ist dieser Vorgang rasend schnell. Habe aus Neugierde auch ein Time Machine Backup aufgespielt - das hat allerdings genervt, denn: die Platte ist laut und hat starke Resonancen auf dem Schreibtisch erzeugt.
