LaCie Little Big disk with Thunderbolt 2 now shipping

LaCie has been making storage products for years and has some of the best looking external storage devices you will find. The company announced what it claims to be the fastest portable storage solution in the world last month. While LaCie offered up all the details on the Little Big Disk with Thunderbolt 2 in January, we didn't know a few things.

Notably, it was unknown exactly when you could buy the storage device. If the speedy external storage solution tweaked your interest, you can now purchase the drive. It's not cheap with pricing starting at $1299.99 for a 1TB SSD version.

For the money, you will get a blazing fast storage solution that is capable of delivering speeds of 1375 MB/s and is small enough to take with you on the road. Inside the enclosure are a pair of 500GB PCIe Gen 2 SSDs that are in a RAID configuration.

Users needing the most speed they can get can daisy chain a pair of the storage devices to get speeds up to 2600 MB/s. That speed does require the drives to be chained in parallel to a Mac Pro. Up to five of the drives can be daisy chained together for performance and storage capacity.
