LaCie 2big network review
2 September 2008
Excerpt: This model was reviewed as part of our group test of NAS drives . Encased in dull grey metal like much of LaCie’s line of larger hard-drive systems, the 2big network would sit well next one of Apple’s pro-level Macs – but on its own it looks a little like an air-conditioning unit or heater.
Pros: Metal design keeps noise down; simple software; low cost.
Cons: Slowest in our tests; poor Web interface; no RAID 0 mode.
Summary: The 2big network's main flaw is that it was far slower than other drives we've looked at. Even considering the low price, and that some of these drives had three or four drives to the 2big's two, its performance was poor.
Pros: Metal design keeps noise down, simple software, low cost.
Cons: Quite slow, poor Web interface, no RAID 0 mode.
