Summary: I bought this network drive to have a centralized storage for family photos, movies and music. I had no trouble installing and configuring the drive, as it went smoothly and without any hiccups. BTW, LaCie customer service is very good, if needed, as this is my third hard drive from them.
Summary: have set this up as network-attached storage for my small home business, connected via ethernet to an Apple Airport Extreme; with direct backup from this disk to a LaCie d2 via eSATA cable, using the built-in backup software very quiet very easy setup
Summary: What can I say other than it works as advertised, it is a quality built product and the manufacturer stands behind it. This is my seventh LaCie drive in the last five years (all still functional) ... I was a big Maxtpr fan until their stuff turned to junk.
