Final Thoughts

When I first had the chance to lay my hands-on the LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2, the first thing that came to mind was how small this unit really is. Keep in mind that I never had the chance to test the original, so this is a first time deal for me. The entire chassis of the device is designed out of aluminum, which doubles as a heat sink to keep the components cool.

 

One thing I can surely say is this unit is whisper silent, and it's certainly not like I didn't beat the heck out of the LBD because that volume fill test has the tendency to really warm things up. Alas, the fan in the LBD did turn on, but it never got above the noise I hear daily from my MacBook Pro.

 

Performance of the LBD, as you seen in the charts, was pretty amazing. Any time your external storage can outperform your internal storage, it's pretty remarkable. In our AJA system benchmarks, we watched as the LBD scaled through 720p, 1080p, and 4K with ease, and the volume fill showed consistent performance throughout the device.

 

Build quality, as you can assume, was top notch, something I have come to expect from LaCie in testing previous products from them. Of course, with this device being a Neil Poulton design, the desktop art feel is still there as well, and it is surely something I would love to have on my desk.

 

The LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 in the 1TB configuration carries a MSRP of $1299.99 with a three-year warranty. Current market pricing for the unit can be found below.
