LaCie 12big Thunderbolt 3


With a massive capacity, speeds of up to 2600MB/s, and the ability to set either RAID 5 or 6, the LaCie 12big Thunderbolt3 lets you rein in the stampede of data from 4/5/6K cameras. All this in a stylish, small footprint design.

The LaCie 12big is the largest solution in their range offering unparalleled performance for the cost. It’s really tall (well they needed to fit 12 drives in it!) but has a relatively small footprint. Built with 4/5 and even 6K media in mind it really packs a punch.

The great thing about the 12big is that it has both Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C connections (back compatible with USB 3.0) so it can be hooked up to a wide variety of machines which makes it a hugely popular choice amongst our clients.

Spreading the workload across 12 drives, the LaCie 12big gives you transfer speeds of up to 2600 MB/s read and 1700 MB/s write when set to RAID 0 but you also have the option to build in some redundancy by choosing RAID 5 or 6 too which still leaves you with some impressive rates.

12 drives just a little too much? Check out the smaller sibling the LaCie 6big here.

Need to expand? No Problem!
Thunderbolt 3 lets you daisy chain up to six devices to a computer via a single cable. So you could connect up to six LaCie 12big devices together, bringing a jaw-dropping 720TB to your computer.

Macs with Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 ports can experience high-end transfer rates with LaCie Thunderbolt 3 professional solutions. Apple’s Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter (sold separately) provides easy connection between LaCie Thunderbolt 3 solutions and Macs with earlier generations of Thunderbolt.*

*The Mac must be running macOS Sierra 10.12 or later and transfer rates are based upon the speed of the connection, up to 10Gb/s for Thunderbolt and up to 20Gb/s for Thunderbolt 2. For details and potential restrictions, see Apple Support
