LaCie 2big Dock Thunderbolt 3 Review

Rating: 8.0.

The 2big Dock Thunderbolt 3 is part of LaCie’s Professional range of external storage drives. Available in capacities up to 20TB, it’s equipped with a pair of Thunderbolt 3 ports for fast data transfers and comes with SD and CF Flash card slots.

Designed by multi award-winning product designer Neil Poulton, the 2big Dock Thunderbolt 3 has aluminium enclosure to help with getting rid of the heat generated by two fast spinning hard drives. Also helping to keep the unit cool is a whisper quiet fan.

LaCie’s drive of choice for the range are Seagate IronWolf Pro enterprise-class hard drives which have spin speeds of 7,200 rpm and 256MB of cache.
