LaCie 5big Network Review

Posted on Wednesday, December 10 2008 @ 15:27:29 CET by

LaCie’s 5big Network delivers impressive storage capabilities for small networks. Not only can you benefit from huge capacities thanks to the supplied Hitachi SATA drives (7200rpm), but also from a complete backup solution for your data. Compared to traditional four-disk RAID towers, it uses around 25% less energy, and its cooling system is typically 37% quieter, despite the additional disk. The fact that the drive looks really sweet is a big bonus too! If you’re looking a storage device to share over a wired network and consider design a very important feature, LaCie’s 5big Network would make an ideal addition to any workgroup. Just be prepared to splash out an impressive £1258 (£0.16 per GB) for the flagship 7.5TB model. The biggest criticism is that backups are neither compressed nor encrypted, and you'll need to consider the security of sensitive files as backup drives can be attached to the device.
