Ease of Use

I have been using this external (NAS) hard drive for approx. 2 weeks now. I have to say that I am very impressed! The setup was a breeze and the network found the HD immediately without complaint! If you have been file sharing with someone else, you need to give this a shot. The drive is very fast and whisper quiet! I highly recommend this drive.

I value this hard drive a lot. It's good performace and quality. But be careful: IT NEEDS TO BE UPDATED AT THE VERY BEGINIG. VISIT TO FIND OUT HOW TO DO IT. Shipped device has old version of operating system which does not include all nice options. The process of updating is quite easy, but needs some extra work!

Great low-cost NAS drive

by Phil ( on 3/7/2007

Simple installation, quality construction and low cost. It's a great combination. I wouldn't use this drive as my main file server (low-cost external NAS drives tend to be a little slow), but as a backup drive or simple file sharing, I found no deficiencies. I'm very happy with this purchase.

LaCie 250GB NAS Review

on 3/11/2007

I selected the product based on previous customer reviews, and the value for the money ($110 to my door). Most of the reviews reflect my opinion as well. My home environment: Sony VAIO deskside PC Multiple laptops at any time (wireless) Linksys 54G wireless router (LaCie NAS attached) The unit is of high quality and well packaged. The unit performance is excellent (although a bit noisy). The setup instructions are a bit vague in that references that are made to the Microsoft environment are both inaccurate and information is missing. Also, the setup should include an automated "Check for updates" option. My unit's firmware needed to be updated, and no charge backup software was available on the LaCie web site that was not included with the product. All things considered - I would recommend the product to others. Setting this up as a network storage device is a great option for any household.
