The Lacie NetworkSpace2 NAS is an excellent device. They make much of its design; I was more interested in its features. It's unusual in that as well as being connected via Ethernet, it can also be connected directly to a PC as a USB hard drive - though not at the same time, and it's worth noting that a maximum of 500GB is available via the USB connection (whether you go for the 1TB or 2TB version). Still, ideal if you want a NAS drive but there are times when you'll be away from the network, and want to take it with you without taking a switch etc. (it does offer remote access, but taking it with you and connecting via USB will be much quicker than accessing over an internet connection).
The unit has an excellent web interface, which allows for management and access to files. It supports a variety of dynamic DNS scenarios, meaning you can plug it in to your router at home, set up a web address and connect to the unit from anywhere in the world. The file access is via a decent web based interface. Of course, you can also map network drives etc. when you're using it at home.
A few things to note:
- it stores files in folders, or "shares". It comes with three pre-configured: USBShare, which is accessible via the network or via USB (and *only* this share is accessible via USB). OpenShare, which is accessible to anyone on the network - if you want to share files between family members, this is where to put them. MyShare, which is only accessible to those who know the administrator password. You can create additional users, who each get their own MyShare folder, only accessible to them.
- you can't connect via USB and the network at the same time. At least, if you do, you won't be able to access USBShare via the network.

You may be lucky you maybe unlucky.
1. It works as a wireless network drive through my router but it is slow to be detected and uploading through this method is slow and unstable. It has hung on me five times and when it hangs it hangs the computer completely meaning that the computer has to be unplugged to switch it off.
2. It works on my laptop Windows 7 64 bit through the Ethernet cable but is detected very slowly, hopeful this will remain like this as it is the only stable connection that I have.
3. It does not work through the Ethernet cable to my desktop also running Windows 7 64 bit, it detected it on the first try but would not open the open share option. I uninstalled and reinstalled the software and then was told no Ethernet disc detected. Looking at the Network manager though it was obvious that the computer could see the disc but LaCie's software could not detect it.
4. I have also had a problem with the files moving from open space to network space 2 so that a password is needed. It is not easy to move them back again. In addition Network Space 2 works on Lacie's own interface which may be wonderful (this I doubt) but is not standard and I do not wish to have to remember the workings of another file management system.
5. I have contacted support about some of these issues. One agent, Albert, did help to an extent but another called Felix not helpful at all.
I purchased this drive as a backup to give peace of mind. But unreliable drives do not give peace of mind instead they take a piece of your mind and disturb it.

I bought two of these drives as a cheaper alternative to Apples Timecapsule. What a mistake. They just do not work with a Mac. Spent half a day trying to sort them out. Eventually got LaCies web based assistant to connect and I had a white page with "it Works" in black letters. Well I'm here to tell you that if you get this for a Mac "it doesn't Work" and they're going back.

Great product, exactly what home electronics should be:

- Simple to install (plug it in, connect the network cable, turn it on, wait 5 minutes)
- Easy to use web-browser interface for any configurations (user names, device name etc)
- Quiet (seems to be completely silent when not in use)

(Update a month on: still working perfectly; 100% reliability)

I purchased this disk to support my Sonos system and to backup multiple PCs.

The backup software was unreliable and Lacie support withdrew the backup software and replaced it with a different package (Genie timeline); unfortunately, the supplied (lite) version of the replacement backup software is not supported on Windows 7 64 bit and Lacie charge for an upgrade. Their marketing material state that Windows 7 is supported.

After so many early reviews that may have contained some knee-jerk initial comments, I'd thought I'd wait a while before commenting, so 18mths later (and probably too late as the product may be discontinued :-(, I can honestly say that this product has been very reliable, always been available on the home network (i.e. never had a dropped connection) and is accessed daily to stream films and music from all around the house. I admit the setting up was not as straightforward as it could have been but If I'm honest, that was partly due to a lack of understanding in how these NAS devices work. It did not take that long to become familiar with the web style interface and the capabilities of the device. My only gripe is that I am now in need of more storage as I have almost backed up my entire DVD library to digital files, so I am now looking to a multi-bay NAS enclosure. If I'd had that foresight 18mths ago, I would not have gone for a static/non-expandable device (that unfortunately this is, so 1 star dropped).
