If you want to read more about the drive, there are support manuals etc available here:

http://www.lacie.com/uk/support/support_manifest.htm?id=10300

Looks like it supports web access etc as well :)

Good price but the mate had an external lacie and it ended up going faulty, customer services were a joke to say the least.
He managed to get the internal drive out the caddy and use it as an internal drive, gd times, but he wasn't impressed with lacie support. :thumbsup:

I would just return it to Play.com - they are normally very good and will let you do a refund or a return.

I have used a Lacie portable drive for years with no problems.
#4
Don't get this if you want to use it with a PS3 as it doesn't work well.

After a lot of emails Lacie admitted there was a fault but didn't seem to be planning on fixing it. Had to send mine back.
#5
Seems quite slow, according to some reviews here:

i really like lacie design however their uk customer service is really poor! no one to talk to! no number! just an email address? i'm not buying a lacie again. who are they anyway? they simply get the harddrives off seagate, samsung etc. put a cover and sell it?

note that i am not blaimg lacie for my hd because it went faulty faulty twice. there is no guarantee with any HD that they wont fail. its just luck to be honest


anybody know how is the direct support/repair with other HD manufacturers like western digital, samsung or toshiba? they are next on my list
#7
Hot from me - I posted a similar offer on a 500GB Buffalo NAS on Friday for £97 and I feel suitably humbled now after finding this deal :-)

lacie support arent great but they are miles better than western digital...lacie drives are dreadful........i have 5 western digital disks and one failed after 14 months and as under 3 year warranty so ok get a replacement...it wd 3 months to respond to the repair request - they only did anything after id report them to trading standards, watchdog....then it took them 3 months to send a new one
lacie took 2 months to mess about and 2 months to send a new one
oh the original lacie drive lasted 1 month......id never buy a lacie again

Scan have got them on pre-order too only 114.99 + postage or free if your a av forum member with the required posts
#10
Hmmm... I think the 30mb/s transfer speed is a bit optimistic to be honest. If you check here, Lacie products in general produce a real life transfer of <17mb/s... http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/component/option,com_nas/Itemid,190/

Also unless the content was disposable / already duplicated somewhere else, it might be more prudent to look at a RAID 1 solution such as netgear readynas or zyxel nas-220, etc. More expensive but you get data redundancy across more than 1 drive.
#11
For people who want good customer service for their support and complaints, please pay 20% extra for the product as each person employed to do customer service costs £50,000 plus the technical infrastructure around it.

Why is this such a hot deal ? AMAZON have a number of 1TB external hard drives on sale for under £85 with free postage.
#13
Warehouse Express hae the item in stock and priced at £117. Orders over £100 are free delivery.

It is a NAS, you can reach it from the net outside and also connect to a network

That's completely different to my recent experience of WD, just goes to show.

I thought my one of my 1Gb USBs was knackered. They sent out a replacement with a returns label next day (OK, I had give them a CC number in case I didn't return the old one). Meantime I found it was the cable, so I never even powered up the new one, just swapped the cable in the box and sent it back with a note explaining. I ha;f-expected some comeback but heard nothing.

So for me, WD warranty was a great experience. As I said up top, just goes to show.
#17
It'll be really slow over the network which IMO makes 1tb nas's pointless.

I opted for a QnaP ts-209 II after loads of research. Its gigabit + media server etc, 1-2TB RAID, and more importantly gets nearer 10Megabytes write speed over my wifi (802.11n)
#18
Anyone know if it's got a torrent client on it like the qnap's?
#19
I have to agree that lacie support is poor. My lacie hard drive is in for repair for the second time. Each time it takes weeks/months to sort out.

Yep, this would be good to know. Also does it support systems running Linux?

Otherwise I will go with a non NAS western digital drive.

Wow, this is pretty much my perfect device, took a look at there website and it ticks all the must haves and then goes on to tick all the nice to haves (+ some 'didn't know I wanted...')

Just a shame it's £200 without a drive!

50k for customer support, LOL

Perhaps they should stop paying designers like Neil Poulton who doesnt really design anything, he just makes a black box!!!!!!!!!!!!
#23
The Qnap is alot but its worth it, very fast and plenty of features. The new beta Web2.0 interface is sweet as well!

The synology dikstations are another alternative but bang for buck the Qnap won it for me.

There is also an app to let the Qnap download from rapidshare if you have a rapidshare premium account, very handy!

Another vote for Qnap here, it also handles downloads of torrent and nzb (newsgroup) files. You can get technical support over msn messenger!
#25
it's fairly good priced for a 1TB NAS.

The latest PCPro magazine rated this the last on the league table.
Large Files Transfer Speed: 8 (write) 10 (read) MB/s
Small Files : 5 write 8 read MB/s
Noise 31 / 34 dBA (idle / load)
Features: Gigabit Ethernet / iTunes Server / UPnP / FTP Server
File system: EXT3 / XFS
#26
Same as all the other cheap NAS drives. slow and full of rubbish software.

If you want a NAS do as others have said and buy a Qnap. Yes more expensive but at least you can install some decent sharing/streaming/download software on them.

Because its a NAS drive - network drive not just a standard external HD! Basically it has network card in it which means you can connect it to your network and everyone can see it / use it :thumbsup:

Yes it can support torrent and LINUX

I have also just spotted another exclusive deal at Play.com - for those of you who want a more solid spec NAS unit:

That's brilliant. I just installed my ZyXel NSA220 1TB Raid yesterday. Now I wish I new about the deal above. That's a quality NAS, although my ZyXel seems cool so far. Plays on my PS3 no problems.:w00t:

I had the Lacie Network Space before that and a, sending it back tomorrow due to the following reasons:

Yes it worked with Vista, yes it connected to my PS3 perfectly, but I just don't like the "ooh look how easy it is to use" thing about it

1) If attach usb drive to it to copy files over to the NAS, it copies everything from the usb disk, no options to choose what to copy. Then while it's doing this you get a rubbish progress bar moving left to right like a Cylone!! You have no idea how long the transfer is going to take.

2) then I found that the NAS can be backed up to a USB drive, but the downside with this was that it copied the whole share without allowing you to choose what you wanted to backup from the share.

3) with the above in mind I thought no problems, I'll set up /picshare, /vidshare and /musicshare, this way I can backup /picshare as this is the most important thing to me, but no, couldn't create new shares, can only use the default shares openshare and myshares, which means everything goes into /openshare as this is not password protected - for PS3

4) also found that can only configure the Twonky media server by setting the last number of the IP address (octet) to .66 and then setting up the admin PC to end with a .6 ip address. Bit pants really.

5) then I found out that LaCie are no longer developing for this system, see here

Thats because its network attached storage! not a simple usb external drive
#33
I've got a couple of these already that i use for media storage on my network. The thing that annoys me is how long it takes to write data to them, it took 4 days to back-up a 500Gb drive via the lacie's usb slot.
#34
Awful experience of LaCie drives - the failure rate is unbelieveable. Avoid.

Now £149.99
