Windows/Mac centric

JiCiT, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: This is my first NAS type drive, so I don't have anything to compare it against, but I believe, for the price, this is good drive. For any Windows or Mac user just looking for a common location to store files, it's more than adequate. However, for my purposes, I'm a little disappointed. Pros: It looks good The price is right. Easy set up. You can skip the network assistant if you're a bit tech savvy. Nice GUI web interface. Cons: Write and read speeds seem really slow.

Good Network Storage

JonShow, B&H Photo
3 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I use this drive on a home ethernet LAN. So far so good. The one annoyance is that the software (Network Assistant on a Mac) doesn't always mount the drive after a restart. To address, quit, then reopen, Network Assistant.

First Time Network Set Up

John Edwards, Amazon
3 January 2014
  • Summary: Challenge: My wife and I both work from home and needed an on site backup solution for 5 PCs and 1 Mac. To me networks have always been complicated so I always used a USB backup drive separately for each computer. This got to be a very old scenario. Solution: Network Addressable Storage device with scheduled backups. I did a lot of research on this topic, media servers (DLNA certified), storage, cloud access.

Decent NAS

Qballrail, Amazon
22 October 2013
  • Summary: Holds data as advertised but makes occasional "screeching" noises which are concerning but it has been running well for the past 2 months. Odd that there is no valid S/N, despite sending all digits on the back, no S/N could be deciphered. I don't know how that will affect my warranty so that's another concern I have but all told, it works well.

IInitial Impression

M. Fiedler "Anesthesia Guy", Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: My primary reason for buying this NAS drive was to replace an old, failed time capsule used for backing up my main computer. The Drobo NAS I would have preferred was way out of my price range. G Drive, my usual go to for hard drives, apparently doesn't have any network attached storage capable drives. LaCie was my next choice and this drive was VERY reasonably priced.

Fan-less and Happy

Robino, B&H Photo
12 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I purchased this product for two reasons. 1) was its compatibility with Apple products and 2) for the fan-less design. I am happy on both counts with the LaCie d2 Network NAS.
  • Pros: Quiet

Like it a lot - some minor complaints

R. Weiner "consultant", Amazon
20 August 2011
  • Summary: I've had this drive for a few months now and generally like it. It has a small footprint, lots of storage capacity, and was pretty easy to set up. The user interface is decent but not totally intuitive -- I had to mess around with the Public and Private shares to get my various systems (1 Windows 7, 2 XP, Samsung TV) to see it. For a while I was having a problem where the drive would be on but not accessible.

Lion Compatible [Updated]

Christian Tafoya, Amazon
30 July 2011
  • Summary: UPDATE: The issue regarding Lion support appears to have been fixed in a recent BETA release of the LaCie d2 Network firmware. ([...]) The drive does not perform as well as it did when I originally purchased it, but I'm sure this will be address when the software comes out of BETA. I am very happy to see that LaCie is stick to their product and fixing this incompatibility.
