LaCie, owned by Seagate Technology, features LaCie 1big Dock SSD Pro and LaCie 1big Dock desktop data warehouses, according to the manufacturer, addressed to “creative professionals and users with high data storage requirements.” In particular, they can be used in the video production process.
The 1big Dock SSD Pro has a Seagate FireCuda solid state drive with NVMe support. The Thunderbolt 3 interface is used to connect to the host. The declared data reading speed is up to 2800 Mb/s. In addition to two Thunderbolt 3 ports, the storage equipment includes USB 3.0 and DisplayPort 1.4 ports, as well as slots for CFast 2.0, CFexpress, and SD memory cards. LaCie 1big Dock SSD Pro storage is available in 2TB and 4TB.
The LaCie 1big Dock model is similar to the 1big Dock SSD, but it has a LaCie hard drive. It is offered in 4TB, 8TB, and 16TB storage volumes. New LaCie drive also features direct ingestion of content from SD cards, CompactFlash cards, and USB devices. It streamlines the 4K video filmmakers’ studio by serving as the hub of all peripherals and connects the workstation with a single cable eliminating the need for extra dongles or adapters.
Both 1big Dock SSD Pro and 1big Dock can deliver up to 45W of power to a laptop or 30W when daisy-chaining compatible devices. Daisy-chain the laptop’s USB-C power cable to the 1big Dock and the laptop can receive up to 70W. This also frees up a much needed USB-C port on the computer.
