  2TB Lacie Little Big Disk,  2013-01-19
By Joe

Pro's: Insanely fast transfer speeds. Several Gigabytes per minute speeds! Can more than max out the speed of even SSD disks. Daisy chaining (RAID) more than one of these units together on the Thunderbolt bus actually INCREASES the transfer speed. It transfers "small" files below 25MB so fast you have to double check to be certain it actually happened !

Pro: the case is quite high quality and the optional foot pedestal is rock solid and gives the unit a surprisingly low center of gravity.

Pro: I bought the refurb unit at a dramatic discount, looks brand new, running perfect for several weeks now. I really like it.

Cons: not really a con, just a buyer beware: It does have some fan noise, about 60db according to my little iphone app meter, and I don't think it's variable speed. Not harsh but if you are insistent on absolute silence to match your Mac Mini, etc, you will want to plan to locate this somewhere besides the desktop. I have it on a little file cabinet beside my desk and I have to strain to hear it. Does sort of defeat the otherwise asthetically pleasing nature of it a bit I suppose.

Con: the blue light is cool, but the speeds are so fast it's rather pointless. If you have it on the desktop in dark lighting it can be a bit annoying. Could easily solve with a little piece of opaque tape or just point it away from you. Luckily the little thunderbolt cable and the back of the unit is still ergonomically pleasing, so you could even point it backwards and it's not unsightly. Lacie should include a little utility to control it's brightness.

Overall a big fan of the form factor of these Lacie disk boxes. Probably the neatest look I've seen, very sturdy and very functional.
