LaCie designed the 4big Quadra to make it move data fast, constantly dependable, and connect to any standard computer on the planet. With USB 3.0 and RAID 5, it delivers speed and security without compromise. With an efficient and ultra-quiet cooling system, the LaCie 4big Quadra is completely reliable and perfect for intensive content creation, secure backup, or massive desktop storage.

  • 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 eggsGood purchase.

This review is from: LaCie 4big Quadra 16TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive 9000330U

Pros: It works as advertised. (not all the common these days)
Attached to W7 on USB3 with hdtach I get 182MB/s avg read.
Raid configuration is easy
Price isn't outrageous when you consider the cost of 4 - 4TB drives.

Cons: Sleeps and wakes up randomly sometimes. I suspect this is a W7 issue and not the device.
Takes a little longer than I would like to wake up, but faster than my WD raid usb drive. Not a drive issue, just physics, spin up the drives and verify raid. I doubt it could be any faster with mechanical drives.

Other Thoughts: I have had this about 3 weeks now and am happy with this purchase. More money than I wanted to spend, but given the alternatives to backing up the 7TB I currently have, I am very happy.
I backup all my pc images to it and rsync to an smb mount all of my media from a Linux NAS. Even though the NAS is a Raid-z with HS, one wrong command and its all gone. When will we get TB optical media.
I haven't looked at the brand drives they are using, but hopefully they will stand the test of time.
