Here we take a look at the 2Big Thunderbolt 2 in RAID 0. As you can see, we reached 421 MB/s read and 325 MB/s write.

Moving over to RAID 1, the LaCie was capable of 203 MB/s read and 204 MB/s write.

All testing with AJA System Test is done with a 16GB file size.

In our first test, we test 720p and RAID 0. Here we see the 2Big touching 500 MB/s read and 400 MB/s write.

Over on 1080p RAID 0, we found the LaCie coming in again at 500 MB/s read at peak and 400 MB/s write.

4K and RAID 0 calmed the 2Big down a little, with the unit coming in around 480 MB/s read and 380 MB/s write.

Swapping the unit over to RAID 1, or "safe" as LaCie calls it, we find the unit coming in around 250 MB/s read and write.

Increasing the workload to 1080p, we find the same results, though the variation tightens up a bit.

4K results tighten up even more, but we still find the unit hovering around 230 MB/s read and write.
