Summary: The LaCie 5big Network 2 is easily the best looking NAS we have reviewed. While it might have a bit of a HAL theme going on with the front, it is one of the slickest cases we have seen in a while.
Pros: Super durable case, Great looking design, Intuitive NAS OS 2.0 user interface, Robust set of backup and media serving features
Conclusion: LaCie’s 5big Network delivers impressive storage capabilities for small networks. Not only can you benefit from huge capacities thanks to the supplied Hitachi SATA drives (7200rpm), but also from a complete backup solution for your data.
