Just what I needed8/12/2012
I have often found it annoying when I need to print something and the computer that my printer is connected to is off. I've now setup the printer server via this network drive, which allows me to share it over the network with all the computers in our house.
Excellent Storage Unit8/4/2012
I consider myself a "power user" when it comes to computers. I film a lot of HD videos as a hobby and I'm forever running out of hard drive space. Now that I have a Network Space 2 I can store my raw footage on the NAS and edit it in real time directly from the drive! This is an impressive piece of gear.
I'm a photographer and I bought this drive as a backup for my files. It's exceeded my expectations - easy to set up, easy to use. I can stream my photos over home network to my Mac, iPad and my TV! I can access them over the Internet too, which is just great in case someone wants to see my portfolio, I can access it directly from my iPhone. I just love it!
Works well with my Mac5/18/2012
Setting up this NAS for automatic backups with Time Machine was fairly easy. Once up and running, the drive is fast and quiet. It's easy to use and gives me access to my files from anywhere, and that's a big advantage for me.
good network drive5/8/2012
I've had this drive for about a month. It took me minutes to set it up. I use it for my music and photo collections. It's totally silent, and stays connected all the time. I also love that I can access the files via an iPad app. That's pretty cool.
Exactly what I needed!3/10/2012
We have two desktops and four laptops at home. Before Network Space 2 we were doing backup manually. Now things are much easier. All computers are connected to the NAS wirelessly, and there's no more running around the house with external backup drives anymore. All users now have their private password-protected shares that they can access anytime over the network. Very convenient! Apart from that, it looks great - stylish and modern.
I purchased this drive to store all my media. I can now access my files from anywhere - my laptop, my iPhone, iPad... and even remotely via ftp or http. I'm very happy with the drive's performance and the features it offers.
So far so good2/1/2012
This is a great NAS. It has enough storage capacity for my needs. I use it as a backup drive for two computers, and for storing my video library. The drive is connected directly to the router, and all my files are now accessible over the local network, and remotely. The setup was very simple.
Good NAS drive1/1/2012
I love this network drive. It was very easy to setup. It has a nice choice of features, great design, and stable performance. I use it as a file server and as a backup drive for the three machines I have on my home network. The storage capacity is good enough for my needs. It streams flawlessly to my PS3. A great solution, overall!
This network drive is just perfect for my needs. The transfer speed is good both on the local network and when accessing files over the internet. There's a nice choice of features, and a very easy user interface. The unit works great even when accessed by several users at the same time. Besides, the device is very quiet, I can hardly hear it working.
Great device for working with any files on the network. Within minutes I've managed to setup the drive and connect it to the network. Everything is very straightforward. I then transferred to the Network Space not only the work files but also my entire music and video archives. Now I can access my files from any device at home on the local network, and that is really very convenient. I mostly use this NAS as a media server, streaming videos via media player to the TV. I'm loving it!
Excellent Home Network Server8/25/2011
An excellent choice. Great design and quality. Tons of space. The device is easy to setup and works like a charm. It has become our main NAS server at home for photos and video. I am very happy with this purchase.
This Lacie network drive has been working exactly as advertised. I connected it to my network in a matter of minutes, it was recognized immediately by all of my computers, I uploaded files to it, that's pretty much it. The drive is very easy to use. The transfer speed is good. The network features seem to work just fine. I'm very satisfied with this purchase!
I am very pleased with this drive. This is my first NAS and I've found it very easy to install and use. It's great to have one central location to store all the documents and photos, with easy access on the network. We have three computers at home and all of them have been working flawlessly with Network Space 2.
Failed after 1 month5/20/2011
After being a die-hard fan of all LaCie products, this is the fifth HD I own that's by LaCie, and I feel that this purchase was just the luck of the draw--I got a lemon. Perhaps by no fault of Buy.com, but the Disk kept on failing and would not connect or reconnect back to the network via my wireless router on many occasions. The LaCie Customer service has been so helpful, though. I have used the CS for over 24hours of helpdesk time, to run this HD, and being a HD person myself, I have also took some time myself before getting this fixed. Finally, I'm now using the LaCie 2TB HD Professional Server with the Aluminum Casing instead, due to the frequent failures of this Drive. I'm sure this was just the luck of the draw, since my previous LaCie HDs have been working with me since Five or more years. Nonetheless, I'm very happy with my new replacement Professional LaCie Drive. C+ for this product
