Packaging for the 2Big carries on the traditional professional appeal we have seen from LaCie in the past. Here we have an image of the product front and center with a few marketing details surrounding.

Physically, the latest 2Big solution adds another bay to the width of the unit. Of course, we still have the Neil Poulton design.

The back of the unit houses a Noctua fan for cooling the unit. On the side of the 2Big, we have the cover that houses the connections.
