New: LaCie 2big RAID and Rugged RAID Shuttle
LaCie offers two new RAID drives: the LaCie 2big RAID and the Rugged RAID Shuttle.
The 2big RAID is the small offshoot of the silver 2big Dock. It also accommodates two 3.5″ hard disks, but is technically a bit simpler: on the back it offers only one USB-C port in contrast to Thunderbolt 3 + DisplayPort of the big brother. In addition, the USB port and card reader are missing on the front.
But the price drops a bit: in the same memory configuration with 8 TB there are $100 between the two models. The price for the 2big RAID for two 4 TB disks is $439.
The Rugged RAID Shuttle is also available for on-the-go use. Similarly strikingly designed as the other LaCie Rugged hard drives, it offers a USB-C port. Included are two mechanical hard disks that can run in RAID 0 or 1 combination. The maximum capacity is 8 TB, the speed 250 MB/s. The price is around $540.
