Not easy to set up

Javier Ruiz, Amazon
22 February 2013
  • Summary: It took a while to set up, very slow backup over wireless connection. Would have just gone with the Time Capsule and pay the extra cash.

Finally got it working, but...

J. Johnston, Amazon
6 January 2013
  • Summary: I'm a systems administrator and experienced with network setups. But this was by far one of the most miserable setup experiences I've ever had. The process is excessively convoluted. Moreover, it is setup to automatically use an IP address which very likely will either conflict with your existing router, or will be within a range outside your current DHCP range setup.

A $300 Paperweight

mthain, Amazon
25 August 2012
  • Summary: I am very knowledgeable with home networking, hardware, software. I work in IT. I'm generally a techie. I wanted an affordable and highly functional NAS device. I researched various products and I really wanted something reliable, so I would not have to constantly back up all my files on multiple hard drives. I've had two other NAS devices crap out and lose my files. I came across this one from LaCie and read the reviews.

useless brick!

calle19, Amazon
22 May 2012
  • Summary: First I could not get this drive to connect to my wireless network (Verizon Fios) which is what I bought it for. So ended up just connecting it via ethernet to the router. It took about 5 or 6 days to back up 600gb over the network (wireless from the computer to the router). I was using it for a TimeMachine back-up drive for an iMac. About two weeks after the first back-up fully completed, I got an error message saying the database was corrupt and needed to be rebuilt.

RUBBISH DEVICE

David A "David", Amazon
25 April 2012
  • Summary: This is the worst NAS I have ever had the misfortune to use for the following reasons * LaCie software I could not get this to connect AT ALL to my windows 7 PC, the software you use to 'connect' is very dumb, it gives you basically no feedback and just takes you round in a loop asking you to reconnect the device. I've set up a number of NAS HD's in the past and never had any problems.

Very difficult to setup and use. WIFI does not work.

Roger Kitzmiller, Amazon
24 March 2012
  • Summary: Setting up this device has been among the most frustrating network-related things I have done. The quick install guide is useless. It seems like it was translated and then no native speaker tested the instructions. The CD is equally confusing and refers users to the user manual for detailed instructions. However, the manual is incomplete and does not properly sequence the steps to set up the device as a WIFI access point on an Ethernet network.

Hold off Lion OSX users

john, Amazon
23 September 2011
  • Summary: No current drivers to enable iTunes functions and enjoy full functionality. Other than that My PC and Mac can see the drive and it did boost my wireless signal in back of house a little. Wireless assistant app also keeps crashing. Nice device but I cannot believe they were not Lion ready. No downloads, nothing.

The only thing you need to know: drops connection twice per day

D. Car, Amazon
28 May 2011
  • Summary: This device has other features, but none of them matter because of the simple fact that twice per day I have to go into the 'network wan' settings and click 'apply' to make the internet work. Others will reboot the device, but this is a faster way. What good is an ftp server, downloading capability, streaming video server, etc if you have to manually go to log on to the web interface and reset the device TWICE per day? You are downloading files overnight? Nope.
