I wouldn't buy it again

Alex Ilnitsky, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: It was ok when it was working (ok, not good), but then it died a year later. All data lost, obviously.

Great Concept, Poor Execution

Robert Jordan, Amazon
12 March 2012
  • Summary: I thought this device would meet my requirement to serve as a central repository for my wife and I (both laptop users currently sharing one external HD). Setup was relatively simple following the directions. Once set up, the file transfer process was really slow.

  • Summary: Dead. It would work well, then stop and need restarting a few times, but progressively became worse. After researching the problem online, it seems that some have bad hard drives. I made the mistake of throwing out the packaging (trying to be good and not to be a pack-rat), now I can't return it.

Overheated in 10 days

theodore d., Newegg
19 April 2011
  • Pros: hen unit overheated and is being returned, but good, knowledgeable technical support. Answered promptly.
  • Cons: Within 10 days, the unit overheated, malfunctioned and is being return. Might be a structural flaw since no fan. Told to keep on a hard flat surface...it was.

Doesn't work with Time Machine or AFP

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 February 2011
  • Summary: I'm running OSX 10.6.6 and have upgraded the software on the drive to the latest 1.2.9. Samba fileserver works fine if not a little slow. But it doesn't work as advertised with Time Machine and AFP which is the reason I bought the drive.

Nothing special

mpsouth, Amazon
27 February 2011
  • Summary: Do not purchase this unit if you run Windows 7 or if you are looking to backup computers on a network unless you want to purchase additional software. I purchased this to hook up to my router so that all computers on my network could do automatic backups.

So Close!

JP, Amazon
15 February 2011
  • Summary: This product really comes close to being a useful standalone NAS. Like most low end NAS products I've used it has a web interface that lets you do some basic stuff with the NAS, but what makes it seem so much better is their web based File Browser interface that one can use to copy/move files...

Unintuitive and buggy software; terrible customer support

Scenario, Amazon
14 December 2010
  • Summary: I own two of these drives, a 1 TB and a 2 TB. LaCie's management software is horrendous and their customer support is even worse. I have been trying to update the firmware on these drives from 1.0.1 to 1.2.6 using the LaCie Network Assistant 1.4.5 app on Mac, which CRASHES on every attempt.

Not plug and play

Edward L., Newegg
13 December 2010
  • Summary: They claim full plug and play support with iTunes, but then tell me it must be a problem in iTunes that keeps me from accessing it. If Apple has done something in an update to break support for the device, then they need drop the full iTunes support from their list of features or be honest and say...
  • Pros: Does some of the things it claims to do. Got it to talk easily with my PS3 and play videos and music.
  • Cons: Didn't set up so easily. Documentation that came with it was no help. Had to call LaCie to get them to help me reset it to factory settings since it did not work right at first. If your buying this to use with iTunes like I did, be prepared for disappointment. They claim it's plug and play, but I...

An amazing design & idea, but it doesn't work...

Alex Ber, Amazon
8 December 2010
  • Summary: Maybe its unfair for me to rate this product, since I don't actually own one at this moment... I'll explain why: I was looking for a large storage Ethernet disk for my home, without all the multimedia add-ons that other devices in this category had.
