Pros Easy to set up, easy to use, great quality and performance, great user interface, Mac and PC compatible, good looking
Cons so far haven't spotted any
Summary It took me long time to find the NAS drive that I was looking for. I've considered several different options and decided to go for LaCie Network Space 2. I needed something easy to connect to the network and easy to manage, something that works equally well with Mac and PC. I've got the unit several months ago. The setup was done in literally minutes. Very easy. The user interface is just great very intuitive and fully customizable. It's been working flawlessly. I'm impressed with the quality, speed and performance. I would definitely buy again.

"Good drive"on by marbri8
Pros Great design, a lot of storage space, network features, good value for money, easy to use
Cons none that I've spotted for the moment.
Summary The unit worked out of the box and was extremely easy to set up. I love the way it works on the network, I plug it into the router, organize downloads directly to the Network Space, power down my PC, and the unit works like a charm, at the same time I save running the PC for lengthy downloads.
Pros This has excellent features for accessing your files from the internet. It autoconfigures connections and enables you to share photos etc with friends
Cons It's broke. Retrieving the hard drive to extract the data required some special patience to not break the case, although as the controller is shot ... the case went in the bin.
Samsung Hard Drive is fine though and is plugged into my desktop.
Summary There are much better drives out there with controllers that last. Although to be fair, I did like the simple interface from a user perspective. However, I would guess this lasted about 2-3 years ..., which seems to be common for this style of NAS drives. I have had a few Western Digital world books do the same on me.
Checking a Synology NAS now, but will be looking for another NAS which enables me to share my photos with my friends and family
