I'm fairly happy with these RAIDs

Amazon Customer, Amazon
19 September 2014
  • Summary: I have two of these 4big 8TB RAIDS that were bought about 9 months apart and both have had a failed power adapter, so it was a $50 part to fix it. The first RAID adapter failed after about 3 years of use and took down one of the drives.

Worked great, even with drive failure

  • Summary: I bought one of these in Feb. 2010 to use with my DVR. So the box has had heavy use for over 2 years (the DVR is always on). It's setup for Raid5. One drive failed while still in warranty from LaCie. The box correctly flagged the drive with the error.

Solid

Pavel Z., Newegg
11 May 2011
  • Summary: Overall its a great package. Has FW-800/e-Sata which is a must for power users. It also looks really cool sitting in next to my HTPC.
  • Pros: Easy to set up, and works great over e-Sata. Been going strong for almost 3 years without incident.
  • Cons: Can't replace the HDD unless you buy spares from LaCie which is not really worth it given the cost. May as well just buy a new box if you want more HD space.

It works for its purpose

karl W., Newegg
7 April 2010
  • Summary: A bit on the expensive side, but works as a great out-of the box solution for mac aplications.
  • Pros: We used 3 of them on a film shoot and now editing off of them. They work great, no issues found.
  • Cons: Cannot add your own drives to beef up the space. Tried to and hozed the drive firmware. Lacie was very nice about helping rebuild the raid after replacing the original drive.

Great Storage Device

George, Amazon
9 November 2009
  • Summary: This is a high quality storage device. Comes with all cables and is very easy to install. I read the other reviews about the unit being too loud..... When turned on this unit is very quiet..... Maybe the sound issue depends on which hard drive you end up with. Customer support was excellent.....

Large Capacity, Fast Transfer, Simple Design

  • Summary: If you're looking for an external storage solution with eSata, this is a great solution for home offices and SMB. As a photographer and graphic designer, I've found myself going through hard drive space like cookie monster through chocolate chips (sorry, I have kids).

Excellent RAID system

  • Summary: Very easy to configure, very fast, at least over eSATA interface. Maybe a bit louder than I expected based on the description, but bearable.
