Summary: they took some time setting up, had one drive shut down and had to do multiple reboots. good thing i do back ups of this drive. the boot up speed and transfer is not that great, even though it is is a gig net connection.
Summary: I liked the product because it is a router and an external hd In comparison with other products that have the characteristic of being a router The product met my expectation. Could have a slightly larger capacity Ma recommend, is very good.
Summary: After <2 years this thing started to slow down, make loud noises and take forever to load. Got to the point where if I shut it down it would not mount again. Very unreliable. Was able to move most of my files to another drive; but some files were not copied (would stop in the middle of the transfer)...fighting to get everything out of it before it goes in the trash can..... My Buffalo LS-XHL435 on the contrary has been a workhorse and has never given me any problems.
First device was DOA, then the second one didn't work either.
5 July 2013
Summary: I bought this device, but it was DOA. I contacted the assistance and the device was changed. The other one worked fine for 10 days. Then the blue blinking light of death appeared (again). I tried for over a month to make it works, looking for answer on the Internet, specific foruns, etc, but.... didn't work. As this device has no fan, there's a problem of overheating.
Summary: I use the Lacie as central file storage for multiple PC's, iPAD's, and iPHONES at home. The speed over wifi is about 3MB/sec which is fine for me. Connected to my Sony Blu-ray player I can easily stream videos and photos of family events on my TV. There is a backup feature that 'works', but not incrementally. That feature is 'saved' for higher end Lacie products. I would recommend this product to anyone who would like to have economical central storage.
Summary: This product is what i needed and it works great! It did take some patience in setting up. So many lights, so little patience. Definitely read everything before plugging it in. Once again, this works great and I would recommend it.
Pros: design, Storage Space, Fast Read/Write Speed, value for money, easy to use, portability
