Ports and Slots
This hard drive is all about professionalism and making your life as easy as possible. To do so, LaCie has incorporated various connection points for different cable and system types. This includes a USB 3.0 hub on the front of the unit that allows you to charge your phone, connect a portable hard drive or your digital camera. The front of the unit is also equipped with an SD and CompactFlash card slot. These of course allow you to directly transfer your fresh images and videos as soon as you’ve finished capturing them.

Finally, you can connect your LaCie 2big Dock to your high-resolution 720-1080p and 4K display via the DisplayPort also found on the rear of the unit.
The RAID Manager makes it easy to configure any 2big for speed, capacity, or data redundancy and allows the user to monitor the system’s health via handy email notifications. RAID 0 (Stripe Mode) is for performance. Drives are stripped together and function like one large drive, enabling max speed and capacity. RAID 1 (Mirror Mode) if for redundancy, as the name suggests the drives mirror each other, meaning that data is automatically the same on both drives. If one fails, the other acts as a backup. Finally, JBOD is for flexibility (Just a Bunch of Disks). Drives function independently, offering two separate drives in one enclosure.
