  • newegg SuperSpeed USB 3.0 for a Workflow Boost Now with USB 3.0 and UAS compatibility, the LaCie 4big Quadra delivers optimized performance for PC and late-model Mac. Its four 7200rpm professional hard disks configured in RAID 0 provide up to 245MB/s*. The hardware RAID controller ensures sustained performance and prevents dropped frames. More than twice as fast as FireWire 800 (up to six times the speed of USB 2.0), the LaCie 4big Quadra will transform your workflow. And its massive capacity makes it the only storage you'll need for all your projects. Backups and file transfers finish much faster. Play back multiple HD video streams in Final Cut Pro X or Adobe Premiere. Enjoy more responsive photo library browsing in Aperture or Lightroom. (*varies under different configurations.)
  • newegg Universal Connectivity for Compatibility Don't let your project get derailed by external drive/computer incompatibility. With its multiple interfaces, the LaCie 4big Quadra is the perfect match for any Mac or PC. With FireWire 800, import your data from your old computer even faster, if your old computer is compatible. You can even daisy chain older external storage devices or A/V peripherals in order to import data directly, hassle-free. Thanks to backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and FireWire 400, you can literally connect the LaCie 4big Quadra to any standard computer of any era. Whatever the computer you use, the LaCie 4big Quadra has the right connection for it.
  • newegg Comprehensive Data Protection The LaCie 4big Quadra goes the extra mile to protect your data. It can be configured in RAID 5 so your data is kept safe even if a drive fails, without compromising performance. Thanks to hot-swappable drives, you can simply swap in a new disk without switching off the device. No downtime, and no data loss. You also won't lose any data if, during a file transfer, someone trips over the interface or power cable. The LaCie 4big Quadra's cable management system keeps all cables safely connected to the enclosure. This product is also a complete workstation backup solution. It includes professional backup software that lets you perform file-level and even system-level backup and restore. So you can create a full system backup that lets you boot your Mac directly from the product. It's also Time Machine and Windows 7 Backup compatible. It even lets you prevent physical theft thanks to Kensington lock compatibility.
  • newegg Dual Cooling System for Long-Term Reliability The LaCie 4big Quadra's advanced dual cooling system ensures long-term reliability by preventing overheating. The system consists of three key components: an innovative heat-dissipating aluminum casing, a Noctua cooling fan, and jumbo heat exhausts. For the enclosure, its solid-aluminum heat sink design diverts and dissipates heat more efficiently than plastic casings. Its ultra-quiet Noctua NF-P12 fan pulls heat away from the internal components while producing exceptionally little noise. It also controls its speed according to temperature, which means that it works more efficiently while prolonging its lifespan. The LaCie 4big Quadra also has oversized air holes to facilitate airflow from the fan and reduce noise. All together, this ultra-quiet cooling system makes the LaCie 4big Quadra perfect for even the most noise-sensitive creative environments.
  • newegg Designed for Convenience The LaCie 4big Quadra was painstakingly designed to integrate seamlessly into professional environments. With its small footprint and space-saving design, you can stand it alone or stack multiple LaCie 4bigs. Busy professionals can also set up email alerts, so they can monitor their device before potential problems escalate.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as intended..

This review is from: LaCie 4big Quadra 12TB USB 3.0 / 2 x FireWire 800 3.5" External Hard Drive 9000351U

Pros: Holds more than enough at RAID 5 (the 12 TB model = 8.80GB or close to that). Pretty easy setup, no issues few weeks in. It's backing up my home media collection.

Cons: Nothing major I can report on.. its heavy, so just concerned for the glass desktop it sits on. Light on the front, a la HAL, comes on from time to time, but its not major. Have the drives in sleep after 10 mins.. so maybe something is pinging it.

Other Thoughts: It's great. It's expensive, but this is what I bought it for- it does what its intended to do and streams fine from it in USB 3.0

3 out of 5 eggsnot 12 tb

This review is from: LaCie 4big Quadra 12TB USB 3.0 / 2 x FireWire 800 3.5" External Hard Drive 9000351U

Pros: big enough,

Cons: not 12tb only 8.18tb slow to copy and has a problem at startup I have to unplug the usb and plug it back in , only has one usb plug and this isnt good enough for me because I would like to back up other devices on it instead of unplugged this all the time , in the end not a worth while buy , and kinda high for what you get .
