Description

The LaCie 4big Quadra is the most complete 4-bay RAID solution for professionals who demand exceptional performance from a storage device. Offering amazing bandwidth speeds through eSATA 3Gbits and FireWire 800, it also features FireWire 400 and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 ports for maximum compatibility with any Mac or PC. Featuring seven RAID modes to customize performance and data protection levels, the 4big Quadra fits most speed-demanding applications and backup needs for today's workstations and small servers.

Taking advantage of a native RAID controller that preserves computer resources, the 4big Quadra offers superior support for the most demanding applications. Alternative RAID modes - such as RAID 5 - can be configured in seconds on startup to manage speed, security, and available capacity.

With the capacity to store hours of A/V streams, the 4big Quadra has been developed to suit the demands of digital content creators, such as editors who work with Apple Final Cut Pro. When used in RAID 0 or RAID 5, the 4big Quadra supports multiple audio, DV, SD, and HD streams, and up to one stream of uncompressed 10-bit NTSC video in playback. Greater performance can even be achieved when connecting several units together to a multilane eSATA four-port host adapter, in order to support multi-stream uncompressed 10-bit 1080i HD post-production.

Configured in secured RAID mode, the 4big Quadra can archive and protect hundreds of thousand of raw photos with comfortable speed for imaging experts, such as Apple Aperture and Adobe Creative Suite specialists. This makes it a fantastic tool to produce and manage professional projects and artwork. The LaCie Shortcut Button on the front of the 4big makes it even easier to open or back up your favorite libraries with a push of a button.

I chose this model because of its backup and safety options. After much thought I decided to keep the preconfigured RAID 5 mode. So far everything works fine. The drive is fast, and quiet.

I've got multiple copies of our project files safely tucked away, so re-configuring this unit as RAID 0 lets me maximize performance by allowing me to keep our best offerings on a single unit, secure it in our trade show booth with a chain lock, and use the shortcut button feature to automatically run the presentations..

The RAID unit comes with four hot swap hard drive bays, and all the settings can be easily accessed on the rear of the unit. The speeds are excellent, and there's no noise. Our business has two of these operating side by side, and both of the units perform admirably.

After four month this item is working great. It's very solid and performs well in RAID5, providing speed and security, which is great for us as it is our main backup storage.

There are several reasons I chose this unit. Firstly, it's very well built, and the design is far more elegant than average hardware solutions. The second reason is the ease of use. It integrates seamlessly with my PC, and runs exactly as it's supposed to.

I'm really surprised at how easy it was to set up this unit - I was worried that a professional piece of hardware such as this would be tricky, but the interface is very user-friendly. I've left the default RAID5 mode for extra security and redundancy, and setup the automatic backups. It's a reliable and high quality system. I'm very pleased with it.

This is an excellent storage drive, I'm completely happy with the transfer speed and the overall functionality. I use it partly for storing my work backups (I'm a graphic designer, so a lot of storage space is necessary), and partly for my music collection. I've got nothing bad to say about it, it's a very good professional-grade system.

I'm very pleased with this drive. I bought it for my office storage needs a couple of months ago, and it's been working without any issues so far. The software it comes with is quite good, I tested it, but I prefer Time Machine (just a personal thing, I've used it often and I'm very familiar with it).

This unit is professional quality, but it was a breeze to set up and it's working great. The data is now all backed up and reliably safe. The RAID5+spare mode is an excellent solution.

I think it's an excellent RAID server all around - 12TB, USB3, universal connectivity, supports many functions (various RAID modes, hot-swapping, etc). It provides a secure environment for file storage, looks nice, and it's very well built!
