    The thought of that Samsung drive and an M.2 -> PCIe adapter has me salivating. Reply

    I'm really confused at the size of this. I was expecting one of the old 3.5" size enclosures but I think this thing is a lot smaller. Any dimensions or perhaps something for scale in another photo? I'm thinking it's about the same size as a 2.5" drive just thicker. Reply

    Such an interesting combination ... I assume the use of Mini PCIe SSDs in this is to avoid the bottleneck of SATA based 2.5" drives. Although I can't tell the size from the photo, if it can hold 2.5" drives they could certainly make this specific model a lot smaller with those SSDs onboars Reply

    Excuse me but, HOW COULD YOU NOT MENTION IF THIS IS BUS POWERED OR NOT? It's extremely important in a portable disk, and Lacie screwed the pooch making the first version of this product require an AC adapter. INSTANT FAIL. Could you tell us if they solved the issue or if I'll have to ignore this product, too? Reply

    Based on the pictures, it seems not to be bus powered given that there is a third port in the back (two Thunderbolt 2 and one that looks like an AC port). Reply

    sorry to say, but did you read the article or not? Reply

    The user manual does not mention bus powered operation. The device apparently requires external power. http://manuals.lacie.com/en/manuals/lbd2/start Reply

    It's right there in the piece: "On the back you'll find two Thunderbolt 2 ports and an input for the external power adapter." Reply

    It might be fast, but 1TB is a bit small for video editing even at 2K. Reply
