Packaging and the 5Big Thunderbolt
The 5Big Thunderbolt is packaged with a clean professional exterior, a large image of the DAS is placed front and center with Intel's Thunderbolt logo proudly displayed.
The outside of the accessories box doubles as the quick install guide.
Included with the 5Big Thunderbolt, you will find the power brick and software on disk, along with a single Thunderbolt cable.
The 5Big carries a professional look with its clean aluminium exterior, and much like the Drobo, a work of art for your desktop.
The back of the LaCie holds all the drive bays which in turn have locking mechanisms.
Taking a closer look at the I/O connections, here we have dual Thunderbolt ports, along with the proprietary power connection and on/off switch.
Within the 5Big Thunderbolt, we found five 2TB Seagate Barracuda hard drives.
A curious sight for myself, where I found a Noctua 120mm fan controlling the cooling side of the enclosure. Noctua is renowned for their excellence in cooling silence.
