The LaCie 5big Network 2 offers professional, reliable, central storage for instantly storing, sharing, and backing up from any PC or Mac on your network. It provides 5TB of storage capacity in five bays, expandable with its two USB and two eSATA ports. You can also take advantage of its two Ethernet ports to do link aggregation and get twice the performance of single Gigabit Ethernet connection. Recommended for networks of up to 300 users, the 5big Network 2 is the right solution for IT environments looking for high capacity and high transfer speed rates. Thanks to the secure RAID modes, including RAID 5 and RAID 6, the 5big Network 2 enables you to keep data access even if one disk fails. And with room for five disks, the 5big offers more capacity than four-disk solutions in almost every RAID mode.
So far so good6/30/2011
This is my third Lacie purchase, and first RAID server. I've been using it for almost a year, and so far the performance has been great! The 5big runs silently, fast and has been very reliable to date. The overall quality is excellent, just as expected. And the setup was much easier than I thought.
Great and easy server4/30/2011
I am not a techie, so the ease of setup and administration was on the top of my list together with the overall quality when I was looking for a RAID server for my home office. LaCie 5big Network 2 has ticked all the boxes. It works fine, and fast.
Awesome storage solution. I thought it would be complex to setup, but it wasn't. The setup was a breeze. I'm also very happy with the performance, and the cost! Good job LaCie!
I was very impressed with the ease of setup of this unit.I've connected the unit, installed the software and was transferring files within about 10 minutes! Easy, I love it!
Great network server12/19/2010
Great network server. A bit expensive, but worth it. Overall good price vs. features & performance ratio. Works like a champ, fast, quiet. No issues. Huge advantage is that it's easy to setup and manage, that includes RAID configuration.
We have bought this NAS for our office to use as a file storage server. It does the job very well. I've set up RAID 5, which was pretty easy. The unit is compact, quiet, good looking and really fast especially if connected via both LAN ports. It comes with a good choice of backup software, the administrator interface is easy and fully customizable, iSCSI feature is supported. Really great server!
Excellent RAID solution10/24/2010
We've installed LaCie 5big 5TB about 3 months ago. We are running Windows in the office. It comes with Genie backup software for PC and all the necessary licenses. The unit is compact, stylish and quiet. It works with several RAID modes. The feature I personally like a lot is iSCSI, it allows to grant network access to legacy applications that were only supporting local drives. On the top of everything the unit is very easy to set up and administer and works perfectly.
