LaCie’s Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series is now available for purchase. The new Thunderbolt drives feature a pair of 2.5″ drives in a Mac OS RAID configuration and deliver speeds more than 480MB/s in SSD and up to 190MB/s in HDD.
You can even daisy chain multiple Little Big Disks together to increase overall transfer rates. The more products you chain together, the higher performance you get. Daisy chain four Little Big Disks with SSDs to maximize Thunderbolt interface capabilities and reach transfer rates of up to 870MB/s (up to 782MB/s with the 7200rpm disk drives).
