any reviews

Does it require software installation on the PC to access the NAS?

SmallNetBuilder (Tom's Hardware) review.

Cons • Windows network browsing problems
• Relatively slow USB-connected performance
• Sluggish admin interface


"Interface 10/100 Ethernet" or slow ethernet as it is now known.

It will be fine if you are using it as a back up harddrive, but not so good if you are moving large files, watching ripped DVDs, etc.

With 3.7MBps (according to the review), watching ripped DVD (unless it is HD-DVD) is not an issue. No DVD can exceed 9.7Mbps for video or it'll violate DVD spec.

This would be a wonderful bargain if it could run slimserver - I think that this is doubtful but if there is anyone out there who has been able to do this I would appreciate your input...

v2 of it got UPnP AV server if it helps

how do you make this wireless.
also are there any hacks for it?

how do i know if its v2?

Give'em a call?

they dont know.
does it say on box

You can ask'em for part number (not theirs but Lacie's). Judging by the picture, it looks like it is an original one, not V2.

Why's it called Mini? Looks (*")!"( huge to me.

its not huge

the model number is 300952ek
is that v1 or v2?
