I just purchased a second unit - the 2TB one - it is fast and it is compact. I use these disks on my mac with vmware for LINUX servers running large ORACLE based ERP systems and i have three such systems running at the same time from my notebook. I tried this with E-SATA and USB3 on a windows7 corei7 pc and could not get a workable solution. Everyone watchimg my demo is now amazed at the speed of the system on my macbook. IT HAS ACHIEVED everything i ever wanted and have not been able to obtain from previous technologies.
For those who wanna get it but can't afford it. I got the refurbished one from macmall.com for just $209(excluding the cable) which is still available. So I think that is a steal and yousave more than 170bucks. So think about it? I know it is refurbished, but i took the leap of faith and am happy with it. Hopefully for longer.
I am so impressed with this, that I started bidding in ebay for a used one of the same, and finally won a deal for $175 for a used lacie little big 1TB including thunderbolt cable. I think it is a steal again. I only hope they last long. I could not keep quiet with such good deals and so had to share with you guys. :) :D
I have a Sata 3-SSD in the enclosure, non-raid, and a regular disk in the other bay. The SSD performs at ~200 MBp/s for for the write and ~240MBp/s for read access. This isn't terribly bad, but I have an internal SSD as the main drive in the MBP and the speeds are twice that. However, as I'll be using this for VMs and I'll have plenty of these filling the SSD on the Little Big Disk, this is the route I decided to take - rather than consume space on the internal SSD in the MBP. Just keep this in mind, $380 dollars for a Sata 2 enclosure to Thunderbolt connector is what you're buying. The product number on this is 9000106.
I had contacted Lacie to see if they had a different enclosure with regular disks that had a faster connector (sata-3 on board), but they refused to answer the question and deferred me to their SSD Little Big Disk setup. Perhaps because they knew well that the intent was to rip the drives out and put my own drives in there. For the other posters that commented that the performance with SSDs in raid are amazing, the performance on a Sata-3 SSD without a raid, connected to a sata-3 board, would beat the performance of two sata-3 drives in raid on a sata-2 board. I can't justify the cost of another SSD for this purpose as it seems to me a waste of space, I'd rather deal with the above numbers.

I am sure that it would have been good had it worked. I purchased a reconditioned one that was not reconditioned enough. It did not work.Published on March 31, 2014 by Richard Crumley

I would recommend for everyone.
