While looking for external storage devices, we usually skip off quite a lot of options that could have fallen under our desired price range with even more features than we’d expected out of it. From the same league, today we have this 2big Dock Thunderbolt 3 by LaCie, the company behind such cool professional external storage drives.
What’s In It?
Starting off from its capacity options, we have different storage spaces including:
All of them are equipped with a pair of Thunderbolt 3 ports. For those of you who don’t have an idea of the Thunderbolt 3, it’s a much faster way of transferring data than the traditional USB ports. The 2big Dock Thunderbolt 3 comes with built-in slots for SD and CF Flash cards.
Speaking of the key features of the 2big Dock, the two fast spinning hard drives are actually a treat to watch. They help to spread out the excess heat produced and don’t even let you know that a fan is running. To get the best companion for the drive, you should go for Seagate IronWolf Pro enterprise-class hard drives with spin speeds of 7,200 rpm and 256MB of cache.
