LaCie was one of the first accessory manufacturers to embark on the Thunderbolt wave, having announced the Little Big Disk quickly after the first Macs with the new connection hit the market. Now that his availability is imminent (scheduled for late November), reviews have started to appear, and the conclusion seems to be unanimous: costing $ 900 per 240GB (two 120GB SSDs in RAID 0 do not support TRIM; the cable must be purchased separately ), it can be quite expensive, but fast and still ?green?.
Below, you can see the impressions of AnandTech and a table comparing the performance of the Little Big Disk Thunderbolt SSD at speed. In addition to being faster than its relatives with HDDs, it is worth noting that it also consumes slightly less energy. The planet thanks you.
The impressions of the Engadget were similar: because of the high price, the Little Big Disk Thunderbolt SSD may not be suitable for, say, a housewife who just wants to guarantee the backup of her personal files. Audio and video professionals, however, may find themselves rewarded for such an investment.
Would you be willing to pay extra for this performance?
