  LaCie 2TB Little Big Disk Thunderbolt,  2012-07-17
By Larry Pearson

I plugged in the little big disk and it was simple to set up. What would have taken hours to back up 167gigs took about 35 to 45 minutes. It is so small and the construction is very good. It will last a long time. I bought this refurbished and I was a little worried but everything works very well. That sounds a little funny but we all know that a hard drive can fail but the case I think will last forever. I have been using it for a couple of weeks and it is the hard drive that will be traveling around with me. Glad I purchased this product.

  Finally an affordable Thunderbolt HD,  2012-07-17
By Howie Burch

When the store offered this refurbished 2TB Little Big Disk Thunderbolt HD I jumped at the offer. I’m using it with my MacBook Air and it’s super fast. As a time machine back up, it backed up my hard drive in no time. You wouldn’t know it was refurbished if you looked at it carefully. But the price was a lot lower then a new drive.

Very satisfied with the purchase!

  The Little Disk That Can,  2012-07-29
By Rodrigo

I must admit that I was a little leery of buying a refurbished hard drive setup, but have been up and running just fine now for a few weeks. I use the Little Big Disk mostly as a Time Machine backup disk and for that it works very well. It's quick and I never even notice that it's running, so it's not a resource hog.

The Thunderbolt interface works as advertised and allows the drive to reach some amazing performance levels, reducing the time for the initial backup to complete dramatically.

As a few others have noted, the fan for the drives is a bit on the noisy side. It won't rattle the windows or anything like that, but you will definitely notice that it's running.

So far, it's been a great addition to my desktop!

  Fast!,  2012-10-24
By Jeff

At the refurb price this is a bargain. I took the slow rotating disks out of mine and put in a pair of SSDs.

Unit is easy to disassemble and work on.

Noisy!

  Very very impressed! with Lacie 2TB Thunderbolt HD ,  2012-11-06
By Paul Anderson

You should include the Thunderbolt cable with the drive. Something I’m accustomed to when purchasing a new HD. The speed is like moving from horseback to a car..... that fast. Now I know what 10gbs data flow is like, I’ll never be able to be impressed by Firewire again! The size is as small as a my old Sony Datman. I want another one! i give it ***** stars.

The packing was equally impressive. Eggshell foam just like you’d find on the walls of a recording studio, firm solid cushioning.

  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 c...

  WHuuuuT? I can't hear you!!!,  2013-02-03
By Michael Balasko

Sooo.... I bought the 2TB LBD. It's fast - Using blackmagic in RAID0 I test at over 190MB/s read/write. Not bad for 5400 RPM drives.

The downside? Its LOUD. My office is a zen,apple heaven. That means no clutter, no big fans on "PC's", nothing that would annoy me over the long term.

This LBD sounds like my macbook pro when the fan is on high. Always. It's fracking annoying. So. If you like your computer accessories loud then this is the drive for you. If you are old, grumpy and want to edit your photography in a zen like place, then you are going to be irritated by this drive.

Boo on LaCie......

Performance 5 stars
Annoying fan 1 star
