Summary No problems after 5 months of usage. The installation was smooth. This unit is very dependable. Our several Windows 7 machines at the office back up to the 5big Network 2 without any difficulty. The units comes with a lot of features. Overall I'm very impressed, great value for money and a good product.
Pros active directory support, auto sleep mode, encryption possibility, good value for money, nice intuitive UI
Cons no comments
Summary Awesome storage solution. We've installed it in our office nine month ago and people are very happy with the performance. Initial setup was very easy, and the web-based administrator interface is user-friendly. The software recognized the device without any issues and quite rapidly. While I am writing this, I'm doing the complete backup of my other machine. 5big Network 2 has been doing great all this time and deserves the 5 stars I'n giving it.
Pros RAID 0 & 1/RAID 5/RAID 6, active directory support, design by Neil Poulton, excellent design, good value for money
Cons no comments
Summary I'm a pro photographer, so I needed a lot of storage. I wanted something fast and quiet. And, of course, I needed something with a large capacity. I've heard from different sources that it's hard to beat LaCie 5big Network 2 servers in terms of features/price/quality ratio. LaCie 5big Network 2 delivers all of that. I'm very happy with the unit and highly recommend it to anybody with similar needs to mine.
"Excellent NAS"on by Da65
Pros Attractive Design, Plenty of RAID modes, Data sharing, ISCSI, Quiet, Easy To Setup, High Capacity, Easy to use
Cons can't think of any
Summary I was balancing a lot between LaCie 5big Network 2 and another model and after reading a number of reviews decided to go with LaCie. I'm glad I did. This NAS works remarkably well and even in a mirrored raid has good response times. The configuration was very easy, unlike what I thought. All in all, a great purchase for the price and I know from the past experience with LaCie drives, that LaCie stands behind their products.
Pros - Easy to configure RAID
- Good software
- Great build uality
- Good performance
Cons - It's a bit on the heavy side
Summary We are a small office and we have had endless troubles over the years sharing our primary printer and organizing backups. It has been a nice change with the installation of 5big Network 2. The unit works seamlessly and it's FAST over the nework. We now can easily access the same printer without any of the old headaches and backups are done in the blink of an eye..
