4big 16TB Quadra USB 3.0

4-Bay RAID | USB 3.0 | FireWire 800

Built for Pros. Performance and Security for All.

  • USB 3.0 Speed: Up to 245MB/s
  • Multi-interface for PC/Mac compatibility
  • RAID 5 and hot-swap for speed with security
  • Aluminum enclosure and quiet operation
  • Design by Neil Poulton

In this deadline-driven world, your external storage has to move data fast, be constantly dependable, and connect to any standard computer on the planet. With these needs in mind, LaCie designed the 4big Quadra USB 3.0 from the ground up. With USB 3.0 and RAID 5, it delivers speed and security without compromise. Thanks to 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.

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™.

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.

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.

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.

Great Unit, 2013-07-21
By B.R. 
We bought the 4big recently, and I've had no trouble with it so far. This is a really simple to operate device and we've reconfigured it for RAID5+spare as we really need the secure storage more than anything else at this stage. The enclosure is very nicely designed and very quiet too.
