LaCie 301251UR 1TB 2Big Dual Interface 2 Disk RAID

Taking advantage of a native RAID controller that preserves computer resources, this compact 2-disk device comes with Hi-Speed USB and faster eSATA 3Gbits connectivity. Simply select your RAID level with the switch on the back. FAST mode supports speed and capacity-demanding applications, such as uncompressed SD video editing. Ideal for saving important digital libraries, SAFE mode mirrors data so if one disk fails, data remains accessible on the second one. Data redundancy can even be immediately rebuilt with a hot-swappable spare disk**. For higher flexibility, the SAFE33/50 modes create two partitions: BIG for regular data and SAFE for data security. The heat sink metal design naturally draws heat away from the hard disk’s internal components to help keep it cool and improve reliability. It can be stacked or rackmounted.

* Ideal for professional audio & multi-stream video editing
* Storage solution with 2 hot-swappable SATA disks
* 6 RAID modes for high speed, security and/or capacity
* Automatically back up your data

SAFE 50 & SAFE 33 (hardware mixed RAID): one SAFE volume & one BIG volume
Cooling System: Heat sink metal design for natural cooling; thermoregulated, linear, quiet smart fan
Compatibility: (driver-free) Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, SP1 & SP2, Windows Vista™ / Mac OS X 10.4 or later
Dimensions (WxHxD): 91 x 200 x 172 mm / 3.6 x 7.8 x 6.7 in.
Weight: 2630 g / 5.8 lbs.
System Requirements: Computer with an eSATA port with port multiplier support or USB 2.0 port. LaCie recommends the use of LaCie SATA II PCI-X/Express eSATA cards**; Windows 2000 or higher / Intel Pentium 500MHz processor or higher; Mac OS X 10.4 or later / Mac G4, G5, Intel 500MHz processor or higher; minimum 512MB RAM
Comments: 1TB (Terabyte) = 1000GB. 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending upon operating environment (typically 5–10% less).
Capacity also varies depending upon RAID modes. BIG, FAST and JBOD = total accessible capacity; SAFE 100 (RAID 1) = 50% capacity; SAFE 50 (RAID 1) = 75% capacity; and SAFE 33 (RAID 1) = 83% capacity approximately.
**Sold separately
***Burst transfer rates vary from one computer to another and may vary slightly from one drive to another. Average speed is usually lower, depending on host configuration. The eSATA burst transfer rate was found in JBOD with RAID 0 software.
