The LaCie 12big is big; really really big. The 12-bay RAID array sits neatly on your desk to unleash the raw throughput of Thunderbolt3 to your workflow, delivering speeds up to 2400MB/s in RAID5 and even faster in RAID0 so you can cut through edits in 4/5/6K like a knife through butter. So it's really, really fast.

And then there's the capacity. The 12big packs up to a colossal 48TB, 72TB and even an almighty 96TB of raw capacity spread over 12 enterprise-class 7200RPM hard drives from Seagate. There's a hardware RAID controller to wrangle all those spinning disks into logical volumes and to do all the leg work. The RAID controller sits under an easy-to-use user interface called LaCie RAID Manager where you can change the RAID configuration and understand the impact on capacity, speed and redundancy if you want to change to RAID0, RAID6, RAID50 etc (it's default is RAID5, by the way). There's lots of other useful stuff like front-loading HDDs, compact footprint (smaller than an iPad Air, no less) a 5-year limited hardware warranty and software wizards, too.

What's this Thunderbolt3 and USB-C thing all about? Thunderbolt3 is the absolute fastest I/O and it's delivered down the same connector as USB-C. Thunderbolt3 also supports other protocols down the same cable (awesome!) like USB 3.1 (gen1 and gen2), DisplayPort, PCIe, Thunderbolt 1&2, up to 100W charging AND support for up to 2x 4K displays. There's also all the usual daisy-chaining awesomeness we got used to with Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt2. So you can plug your 12big into any Thunderbolt3 host computer for the fastest available connection or even on an older USB3 computer with the included USB-C to USB-A cable.

Special requirements

If you do require special shipping options, get in touch with us before you buy and we might be able to sort out alternative arrangements.


Our team take every care to get your new kit to you in pristine condition, but if an item is faulty, you’re less than delighted with it, or you’ve just had a change of plan, you have a few options…

Faulty goods

We’re happy to swap or refund any item that is confirmed as faulty (or ‘Dead on Arrival’) within 14 days of purchase, and will cover the cost of you returning it and a replacement being shipped out. Sometimes, we’ll put you in touch with a manufacturer if we think that’s the fastest way to get you a replacement, and we’ll cover the transport costs then, too. 

After the 14 day DOA period, we’ll try and get you a return or repair in line with the manufacturer’s warranty. The collection and delivery charges will be covered by Jigsaw24 and the cost of the repair will be covered under the warranty, unless an inspection shows signs of damage or misuse. Again, in some instances we may offer to put you in touch with the manufacturer, but only when this is the quickest route to getting you a repair. Your statutory rights are not affected.

Non-faulty goods (Business)

If you wish to return non-faulty goods, please contact or call 03332 400 999. Wherever possible we will try to facilitate a return/refund but any request for return is at our discretion and where applicable, restocking fees may be required to reimburse any losses.

Non-faulty goods (Consumer)

You can cancel your contract within 14 days of receiving your kit, and another 14 to return it to us once the order is cancelled. Any requests for refund or credit made outside the 14 day window are at our discretion. We’ll exchange or refund any goods returned to us in full working order, but if an item isn’t faulty, you’ll need to cover the cost of returning it to us. The item(s) returned must be as new and in the original packaging. Your statutory rights are not affected.

Sealed software

Returning any software, even if it’s sealed in its original box, is at our discretion and will depend entirely on the individual manufacturer's policy. For example, some software will automatically allocate you a non-returnable licence, even if it is a boxed product. However, if the product is still a current part of our on-hand stock, and we’re able to confirm from the relevant manufacturer or supplier that they’re happy that licence hasn’t been allocated, we will try to take back any sealed software returned within seven days of purchase.

Electronic Software Delivery returns

ESD (Electronic Software Delivery), in which you’re supplied with a licence and a web link in order to download your purchase. As there’s no physical packaging, the licence has to be treated in the same way as an unsealed box, which means we’re unable to take this back, so please double check you’re buying the right item! Give the sales team a bell on 03332 400 888 if you need any help.

Returning products that raise hygiene concerns 

Products that have contact with the ear, nose or throat can only be returned for a full refund if sent back with seals unbroken and in an unused condition (you must exercise reasonable care when evaluating the product as you would in a shop).

We understand that customers may be dissatisfied with the performance of products that raise hygiene concerns after they have tried them out.  If this is the case please contact us and we may be able to offer credit for another purchase (subject to inspection of the returned product) or to purchase the product back as second hand (taking into account that we would need to dispose of the item).

Terms and conditions

We’ll deliver your goods during normal business hours (7:30am-6:00pm) to the address you gave us when you placed your order. Unless we’ve agreed otherwise in writing, the delivery times given by us are a best estimate, and we can’t be held responsible for any loss, delay or damage you may incur as a result of adverse circumstances like bad weather, traffic etc.

Any instances where you might be unable to pay your debts (winding-up, receivership, administration, creditor arrangement, bankruptcy) or you commit a material breach of the contract, we may immediately terminate our contract with you, suspend or cancel further delivery, and/or recover any unpaid items.
