LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 External Storage Device Review

LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2




I was quite surprised at how small the box was for the LBD, but it really goes to show how small the device actually is. On the front of the box, we have an image of the drive centered with marketing information around the outside edges.




Removing the packages from the box, you can see LaCie took a lot of care in packaging the LBD. The accessories are separated into their own box while the unit itself is packed into high-density foam.




The scope of delivery for the LBD includes a whole host of power connections, which appear to be one for each region the device will be launched. We also have the Thunderbolt cable, stand for the enclosure, and the Little Big Disk itself.




The Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 is a Neil Poulton design, though to differentiate from previous models, LaCie has gone with a black finish.




The back of the drive houses dual Thunderbolt 2 ports along with the power connection and Kensington lock slot.




Opening up the unit, we found a very small fan with a rubber duct to control the flow of air in the unit.




The Thunderbolt 2 PCB houses the Intel L5520 Controller.




Moving on, we have the M.2 PCB with both 512GB Samsung PCIe SSDs.
