5* Works like a charm
Reviewed by Bridget on 23/04/2013
I've been using Lacie drives for years, and this 2big Quadra is the latest addition to my 'collection'. I really like the design of this unit, it looks great next to my Mac. The solid casing helps to keep the drives cool, it works quietly. The transfer speed is good, the quality is as expected.
5* Good System
Reviewed by Jack on 23/05/2013
This is an excellent backup system, great for home or small office use. I'm very happy with it - it's fast, quiet, and it seems to be pretty reliable. 6TB is a huge amount of space, even 3TB (in RAID1) is more than enough for all of my stuff. It's well built and looks good, too.
5* Excellent product!
Reviewed by Eaton on 20/06/2013
Installing this device was easy. I setup the RAID1 mode and the unit was up and running in well under 20 minutes including unboxing time. It's been working very well so far. I'm very pleased with it.
5* Works Great!
Reviewed by Ryan on 03/08/2013
I must say that the enclosure of this unit is very well designed, and very considerate of the needs of the desktop user who requires the extra capacity. The RAID options are simple and easy to use, and the management software is user-friendly. I've been using mine for some time, and it's been one of the best drives I've had.
5* Fast and reliable
Reviewed by anonymous on 17/11/2013
Love this unit, the design of the box is great, and the hot swap bays are easy to get to, and the RAID choices are easy to configure. The RAID 0 option allows top speeds via USB 3.0, which is perfect for my needs.
5* just what I needed
Reviewed by Alfred C on 28/12/2013
I needed to upgrade my desktop storage to something with 4 or more terabytes and I settled on this 6TB unit. I've not come close to filling it yet, and hopefully won't for some time. This drive is efficient, cool and quiet, and works brilliantly with my mac, as it has never had a connection drop out.
5* Great Drive
Reviewed by Paige on 12/01/2013
This unit is just what I needed for my home office. I store all my backups and media files on it. It's 6 TB in total, but I've set up RAID 1, which halves the storage capacity. It keeps the data more secure that way, which is what I need. I like the metal casing and the overall design of the drive. The quick launch button is very handy for launching manual backups.
5* A great choice for backing up data
Reviewed by Marius on 10/02/2013
I had just a couple of main requirements when choosing a backup system - it had to be reliable, functional and have good quality hardware. I also wanted RAID functionality and USB 3.0. This drive fitted all those requirements perfectly, and as I've used LaCie drives before, I trusted the brand. So far everything works like a charm. I think I've made the right choice with this one.
5* great product
Reviewed by Sabrina on 26/02/2013
Setting up 2big Quadra was very easy, the instruction manual is straightforward. The unit is quiet, and has good speeds. Great product overall.
5* Excellent!
Reviewed by Sorcha on 02/06/2013
It's nice not to have to jump through hoops to get automatic backups of my files. I was looking for something easy to manage, solid, and fast, so I could setup a redundant RAID1 storage for my main workstation, and this unit did the trick. The drive is good quality and there's almost no noise.
