Lacie’s new Thunderbolt Little Big Disk claims to be the fastest portable Thunderbolt drive around, running at up to 635MB/s – “a 33 percent increase from the previous model.”
The new LaCie Little Big Disk can complete tasks in minutes that used to take hours. This saves our customers time and therefore money.
I opted for a fanless FireWire 800 MyBook Studio drive when I needed an emergency boot disk for my iMac a couple months back. The FireWire Lacie LBD was my second choice, but it was also about one third as much again in terms of price. Still, there are so few Thunderbolt drives around that Lacie might have this one sewn up anyway.
