The aluminum-encased 2big has arrived, with its (up to) 311 MB/s transfer rates scorching the ground behind it. With hot-swappable disks and dual Thunderbolt ports for daisy chaining, the Portal-esque 2big is on sale now from LaCie's online store with a three-year warranty. Prices start from $649 for 4TB, moving up to $799 for 6TB.

speeds three times faster than FireWire 800. For data transfer gurus,
that means 1TB of data – that's nearly 235,000 MP3's, 750 iTunes
movies, or more than 450,000 photos* - can be transferred in less than
an hour! Furthermore, you can daisy chain multiple 2big Thunderbolt
devices to increase overall performance.
