Size: 1 TB Verified Purchase
This Network Disk was purchased with the intension of being used in a Mac Only environment for professional graphic design and 3D modeling services. 4 macs on a gigabit Ethernet network.
Amazon packaging was done properly, arrived in perfect condition.
LaCie packaging was done very well. The package includes all cables and software needed.
SW Installation took 8-10 minutes and only requires to be installed on ONE machine.
It mounts very fast on each machine as I have named it; DA5-Netdisk
The files are generally reference Photos and 3Dmodels that are used and shared between these machines.

Transfer Speed:
Test file: A Folder containing 2 files; One 4KB (1,375 bytes) and the other 1,088,275,968 for a total of 1.01GB (1,088,277,343 bytes)
Test condition: The only file transfer done at the time.

On a G5 Dual 2GHz PPC:
From External FW800 to Netdisk, 31 seconds
From Internal SATA to Netdisk, 29 seconds

On a Macpro 2.93MHz Quad, 8-core
From External eSATA OWC to Netdisk, 29 seconds
From Internal dual RAID WD Raptors to Netdisk, 28 seconds

For testing I used a folder and NOT a file since that is a more realistic simulation of everyday use than one large file.
The speed is very good. It is NOT the fastest which is the IOCELL NETDISK NDAS 351 but the Iocell does NOT allow more than ONE Mac to write to the netdisk in NDAS (Multip[le READ, single WRITE). The difference is about 2-3 seconds per transfer on a 1GB file. That is very negligible for me or almost 99% of people who would use a netdisk.

Note that deleting ANY file or folder from the netdisk will NOT put the item(s) in TRASH but it DELETES the file(s) or Folder(s) immediately.

Easy to set up. Stays connected all of the time and recognized by all the computers on my home network. Fast for the price. I like it much better than the Western Digital Worldbook that I have.

Size: 2 TB Verified Purchase
I have been using this drive for about 5 weeks now. I bought it for backups of my PC. After reading some of the reviews I was a little hesitant to get it, but it seemed overall to be the best drive available. My initial backup was rather disappointing. It took 24 hours to backup 29G/163K files. I was starting to think about returning it. Then, the admin control panel for the drive indicated there was a driver update available.

After getting the driver update things have been much better. That same backup now takes about an hour, using the included software (Genie Backup Manager Pro). I am not using file compression because I want to be able to use the standard explorer to get any needed files when the time comes. I am running a 100M Ethernet and have seen the backup use 90+% of the net capacity while transfering files. The PC is a new i7 processor, so it is quick. There are lull periods during the backup; I assume while the software is determining what to backup next.

My only complaint is with the backup software. Comparing it with the software that came with my older backup drive; it is harder to find a backed-up file if I need to. I have not tried the restore features of Genie Backup Manager; so, this complaint may be addressed there. My older backup drive's software organized the backup in latest, 2nd oldest, and so on directories so it was easy to find the first, second and 3rd oldest version of a specific file. Genie Backup Pro just makes a copy, organized by the date of the backup. So, if I want something that I changed a while ago, I have to search all the backups until I find it. Someday, I may try the restore capabilities of the software and see how they handle this. For now, it is not a priority.

I was looking for home network-attached storage (NAS), a place to store files I would share across devices. I have several 1TB LaCie drives that I use as backups directly connected to each laptop/desktop, but I was going more for the network file sharing than backups here. The 2TB size, my good experiences and comfort with LaCie drives, and my need for Mac Snow Leopard, WindowsXP(SP3) and Windows7(64-bit) support made this one of the few devices I could find and it was at an attractive price point. I've had this in place just shy of 4 months now, with not a glitch. I took one of my other 1TB LaCie drives and daisy-chained it to the NAS giving me 3TB total. The additional drive mated quickly and works very well. I partitioned the 3TB into some public and some private folders, all working as desired.

Several reviewers have commented on file transfer speeds. In my environment, the NAS is Ethernet-attached to my AT&T Uverse router and sits right next to it. One laptop is also Ethernet-attached to the router, but all other devices are on my encrypted wireless network. Since the wireless portion of the network is probably my weakest/slowest link, the speed of the drive itself doesn't seem to be a factor for me. Also, I rarely transfer files larger than a few MB and these are moved quickly enough for me. By way of example, I can open a 4MB *.pdf file on my wireless Mac in Preview in 2 sec. I have not intended to use this as a media server where speeds become more important. A second example: a 727MB *.avi file transferred from the LaCie backup disk attached to my MacBookPro through the wireless LAN to the NAS in 3 minutes with lots of other users on the wireless and wired portion of my network. The same file transferred on an Ethernet-attached link in under 45 seconds.
