Perfect for Professional Environments

Designed for Convenience

The LaCie 2big Quadra was painstakingly designed to integrate seamlessly into professional environments. With its space-saving design, you can stand it alone vertically and reduce its footprint on your desktop. Busy professionals can also set up email alerts, so they can monitor their device before potential problems escalate. They’ll know, for example, that the ambient temperature in the room is too high before it causes problems. Even changing the RAID mode is convenient thanks to two-step Easy RAID configuration.

It also features an Eco mode that puts the hard disks to sleep after a period of inactivity. This prevents overheating and controls power usage. Whatever the professional environment, the LaCie 2big Quadra delivers convenience and piece of mind.

Support When You Need It

Your LaCie 2big Quadra is protected by a three-year limited warranty. It includes comprehensive, complimentary web-based resources, expert in-house technical support, and worldwide repair/replacement coverage. Warranty extensions and Advance Care Option can also be purchased. For details, see

▲ These transfer rates were achieved using AJA System Test when connected to a Mac computer via the USB 3.0 interface. Actual data rates may vary depending on operating environment and other factors, such as chosen interface, RAID mode, RAID configuration, and disk capacity.
▲▲ These measurements have been made under normal conditions, one meter/three feet from the front of the product. This value may vary with conditions and product configuration.
When referring to drive capacity, one gigabyte, or GB, equals one billion bytes and one terabyte, or TB, equals one thousand billion bytes. Your computer’s operating system may use a different standard of measurement and report a lower capacity. In addition, some of the listed capacity is used for formatting and other functions and will not be available for data storage.
