|Bottom line|| |
Home users, especially fashion buffs, will find a lot of appeal in the LaCie Network Space 2 because of its appearance and ease of use. But savvy users will find it lacking, both in performance and in features.
For a low-cost entry-level network storage device, the WD My Cloud is very impressive both in performance and features, making it one of the best deals for home users.
The affordable Seagate Central delivers as a fast and easy-to-use network storage device for home backup and entertainment purposes.
The Western Digital MyBook Live is a fast, plug-and-play, simple-to-use home NAS server that unfortunately lacks features and has a subpar remote-access solution.
Home users, especially those who want an alternative to their Time Capsule, will find a lot of appeal in the LaCie Wireless Space because of its appearance and simplicity. Advanced users, however, will likely find its performance and features lacking.
