Summary: For what is it to have a NAS but lose the ability to run more than 40Gb/second? I have used a lot of great LaCie products over the years, but this one doesn't make the cut. This has beautiful industrial design, intuitive software, and like the 2Big Network 2, can recover from an all-disk failure (or configure from zero) because the firmware is in the unit, not read from disk (Space Max, Network Space, Cloudbox, 5Big NAS Pro do not have firmware in the device itself).
AMAZING STORAGE UNIT, it fails in less than a month! DON'T BUY

Summary: I bought the device, load it with 6.5 TB of data to be delivered as part of a project and then disconected the device. I took it to the client, plug it, start it, and what?!?!??!? The device won't turn on!!!!! I had the device for less than a month and it was on for less than a week. I purchased 2 devices and tested the hard drives on the other one, they worked and the information is there.
Excellent Product, All That sin NEEDED Pay the whims ...

Summary: Excellent Product , All That sin NEEDED Pay the whims of Microsoft Servers , air AD Integration , users , permissions , etc. there is only one thing I do not think, is that you can not change the names of the devices in the USB or give access permissions. This bug was all great!
Summary: Overall, I am very happy with this product, although it was a little challenging to configure. After some basic configuration challenges, I got the drive set in RAID 5 (Automatic) mode, and have started with 3 x 3TB discs and am using for my TimeMachine backup. No problems thus far.
Not really worth it, get a Thunderbolt option at the very least.

Summary: I bought this about a year or so ago, and it's cool to have 15TB of drive space tucked neatly into one device vs. my other way of 4 2TB drives with their own power adapters...However I am disappointed that its just not fast enough transfer speeds to store anything video workable on it. It really needed a Thunderbolt port at the very least I was hoping that with the 2 1Gbps NICS on it I could Isolate traffic from one port to inbound only, and the other outbound..
DO NOT BUY A LACIE DRIVE-unless you want to lose your data

Summary: This is the third external LaCie drive I have purchased on the recommendation of a computer person. I has now chosen to go down like the other two....with most of my data on it....I was backing up to a western digital drive and it still had about173,000 gig a bytes to go...and one of the drive lights went red...tried turning it off and on 3 times but it did not good...left it over night and turned it back on but now none of my data shows up...except for one small file.
Summary: I bought one of their similar products and I have lost data twice. For such an expensive product, and meant to be the solution for storing data securely, this is unacceptable. I would think twice before buying one of their products.
