Is anyone here running the Lacie 2Big Thunderbolt (or any other external thunderbolt storage)? I'm curious as to your impressions. I'm close to pulling the trigger on the Lacie, but wanted to see what you all had to say (good/bad/indifferent). Thanks all!

Same here. I have the 10TB and really like the drive. It runs perfectly in Mirror (Raid 1)

If I needed mass storage, I would buy one of the Lacie TB setups.

Surprised no one mentioned mb/s. Check the one you're getting, some are faster than others

i might get one for my macbook. Is it fast enough (I know it depends on the drives tho) for working lightroom from it? A raid 1 SSD thunderbolt rig would be nice too

in addition to a NAS, im using 4 of these lacie 4TB drives: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/910628-REG/lacie_9000258u_4tb_d2_quadra_v3.html

I would have gotten thunderbolt, but they dont have anything in that size yet.. you also can't daisy chain the standalone drives via thunderbolt for some reason. and part of me likes having individual enclosures so if one dies, I can easily swap one out.

yes, absolutely. LR bottleneck is the processor and the program itself. even an external drive via usb 2.0 is usually fine... and if you're having speed issues from an older drive then you have options like smart previews.

I use a 4TB and 6TB WD Thunderbolt drives (raid0) on my windows 8 machine and I'm very happy with the performance.

I'm running a 1tb/s SSD and I wish it were faster still

Performance is definitely a personal opinion, so it depends on where the user has upgraded from.

do most professional wedding photographers rely strictly on external storage?

I have been using internal SATA drives.. for example I have a 1.5 TB seagate 7200 rpm drive that is finally full. I just purchased another seagate 4 TB internal SATA drive today and planned on purchasing one external seagate 4 TB USB 3.0 drive setup to mirror my internal 4 TB SATA drive for backups.

in this thread it looks like more people are using strictly internal storage only?

I suppose i can see the pain of having to keep swapping out internal drives when they fill up.

ideally id like to get a DROBO setup for my final solution but thats a bit pricey for me right now.

ive never heard of this lacie setup but i guess thats because i'm a windows user not an OSX user?
