I bought this over similar drives primarily because of how well built it is. No floppy plastic here, if anything the drive is bigger and heavier than you would want - and, as other reviewers have noted, the light is HUGE. It's like having HAL 9000 on my desk. But the performance of this drive really is something else - you just wouldn't know this wasn't an internal drive. It came setup already as striped, for performance - changing it wasn't a big deal but the documentation is inaccurate so it can cause a little head-scratching. Mine's now setup as mirrored, for data security and the performance of the drive is still excellent.

The size, design, very steady on the my work table, the volume of data that the hard drive can take and fastness is one reason I keep buying all the time. Never let me down.

Fast and well built 6 April 2013
By ANDY C - Published on Amazon.com

This is my second thunderbolt hard drive. The first being the Lacie 5Big 10TB, which I have reviewed and gave 5 stars. There are plenty of good reviews for 2Big out there, which helped me to choose this drive instead of the G Tech and WD thunderbolt drives.

I will just share some thoughts about this Lacie 2Big vs 5Big.

1. Very well built, solid metal casing with cooling fan that is effective and nearly silent. The disks never go above 50deg C even when pushed hard. The fan sound is slightly more noticeable compared to 5Big. It does make a faint chirpy sound occasionally as reported elsewhere but I find it tolerable. Footprint wise is nearly half of the 5Big. The front blue light is too bright for my liking. It contrasts greatly with the 5Big front blue light , which has a pleasant soft glow. The 2Big hard disks are also labelled and will slide out easily for replacement. They will also fit into the 5Big as well, allowing some interchangeability for owners of both hard drives. On the back, unlike the 5Big, there is no LED indicator for each hard disk. This is no big deal since I don't look at the back of the drive.

2. It is a great thing that Lacie included the thunderbolt cable for the price. The cable is about 1m long and perfect for my use vs Apple's 2m and 0.5m length.

3. Like the 5Big, this drive runs super fast. Raid 0 registered over 310Mb/s read/write using Blackmagic.

4. For my needs, because of its 3TB capacity, I intend to use this drive as Raid 1 for time machine backup while 5Big is used for Raid 0. The 2Big earns 5stars for its solid built and performance.

Overall, I am very pleased with the cost effectiveness and performance of both 2Big and 5Big. I like the 3 years warranty and also that Lacie stands behind their products with extended warranty from 3rd to 5th years.

Fast, Flexible, Fantastic Storage Solution 13 Dec. 2013
By Jason Cox - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I chose this drive because I was looking for pretty massive storage with a lot of speed, but can't justify the cost of a Pegasus Multidrive system ($1200+). My goal was to move my movie collection to iTunes, including Blu-Rays.

Pros:
- Very quiet. I have it behind my iMac 27" and the only time I hear it is when initially booting the system, which is rare.
- Flexible. I have it partitioned into 2 logical drives (4TB & 2TB).
- Fast. This thing is screaming fast. Moving large files (Hi Def movies) from my internal SSD to this thing is crazy fast. Also, the smaller partition is my Time Machine device and it isn't even noticeable.
- Attractive. If you're a Mac user, this probably does matter to you. This thing is big, but it looks good.

Cons:
- Not the fastest Thunderbolt storage available, but my research showed it's as fast as anything under $1000
- Not recommended for backup purposes (even though I use it for that) when used in RAID 0 (striped) mode. Set it up as RAID 1 or get something with RAID 5 instead. RAID 0 = twice the speed but half the reliability. (I've had no issues with failures)

All that said, this thing just works. No muss, no fuss. It's not loud. It isn't finicky. It's screaming fast in RAID 0. 6TB of space is wonderful to have and if you're looking to go big with your iTunes movie collection (I'm up to 700 movies or so, plus 10's of thousands of songs), or any other big disk need, I think this is a great option.

For the negative reviews you see here, keep this in mind: ANY RAID 0 drive is going to be twice as likely to fail as a standard drive. If EITHER of the disks faults, you'll lose everything on the whole RAID. For backup, RAID 5/6 are definitely the way to go, and it may well be worth the price (twice the price!) for the safety you get in return. If you get "enterprise class" HD's to put into an enclosure, you can actually get the speed AND higher reliability than a regular single disk.

This drive is a stopgap for me as I needed something big and fast right off the bat. At some point I will be getting a bigger multi drive enclosure with Thunderbolt for true backup. And I'll keep this for just plain storage at that point.

I hate this drive 17 Jan. 2015
By jibran - Published on Amazon.com
I hate this drive. I hate LaCie for making this drive. I will never buy LaCie again. These are my reasons.

1. Software RAID. For the size and price of this thing you'd think they'd super fit it with a rad internal hardware RAID controller. No, they don't. The RAID is controlled by your OS. It's just an overpriced dual drive enclosure.
2. The drives are not user replaceable without voiding the warranty, even though it's VERY MUCH built with user accessibility in mind. And they charge you a premium for "their" drives. I've had both original drives fail. First one at 3 months. The second one at 20 months. Yeah I get it, 20 months is not that bad, but I've had the 1.5 TB G-Raid Mini for over 3 years and not a single hard drive failure (knocking on wood right now). I've had a Maxtor One Touch for 8 years and nowhere near the failure rate of the 2big.
3. And the kicker? The array wouldn't EVER rebuild itself. Both times I had to buy a second replacement drive, wait 5 days for it to arrive, back up to it, delete and recreate the RAID in Disk Utility, then copy the data back over. Yeah I hear you, maybe it wasn't configured properly, but out of the box it should have been.

I hate this drive.

Do yourself a favor and spend your money on a G-Technology RAID solution. You'll be much better off.

Super fast compared to Firewire 800 and eSATA 10 April 2014
By Augsburg57 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
My mid-2011 iMac has a choice of USB 2.0, Firewire 800 and Thunderbolt. The FW 800 connection (with my other LaCie drives) tested at write speeds from 60 to 75 MB/s, and read speeds at 70 to 81 MB/s. Thunderbolt to eSATA through a hub tested only a little faster.

This LaCie 2big Thunderbolt 6TB drive tested at a whopping Write of 295/MB/s and Read of 336 MB/s. A huge improvement when dealing with large video and photo files.
