Conclusion: Though movies and MP3s were replayed with some finesse, the same didn't apply to the Photo function. In particular, how the device handled images in the vertical Portrait mode. While Landscape mode pictures were reproduced well, photos in portrait scaled really badly, with huge jaggies. Happy snaps looked like lo-res photos no matter which resolution we set the LaCie to.
Pros: Boring design, Limited connections, Some fiddly interface problems, Photos in portrait mode look poor
Cons: Easy to use, Relatively quick, One of the cheapest and largest-capacity streaming devices
