You probably want the 5Big NAS Pro instead

V'ger, Amazon
3 January 2015
  • 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

Amazon Customer, Amazon
26 November 2014
  • 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 ...

CACISA, Amazon

  • 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!

Cheap but slow

Daniel Solorio "Ciimoc", Amazon
14 August 2014
  • Summary: Ok this is probably the cheapest way to have a 5 bay raid, and to start slowly by adding disks as you need it. I regret not having spend a couple 200 more on the 5 Big Pro. If you manage office files you should be ok with it, but if you work with big media files like photography or video, you better get something faster. Writing speeds don't go over 30mbs when you shoot 30gb of data in a day trying to move all that to the drive takes ages.

Don't buy it

MATTHEW HORIST, Amazon

  • Summary: Buy something else. This thing is flaky as hell. And worse yet, the customer service is useless. If I could do it all over again, I would buy a different brand. Not sure which but different!

Not really worth it, get a Thunderbolt option at the very least.

Star Cast Productions, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • 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..
