Known for its high-quality storage and multimedia products, LaCie puts an emphasis on exterior design without compromising on technology. Currently, the company’s range of network attached storage devices goes from affordable single-disk products to rack-mounted 12-disk enterprise solutions.
In this review we will take a look at the LaCie 2big NAS, a dual-disk ARM-based model of the newest generation. It is available in multiple versions that differ in their hard disk configuration.
Package and Accessories
You just can’t pass by this product without noticing its eye-catching white box. The packaging is rather large for a dual-disk NAS at about 26x23x25 cm. The device is firmly fixed inside. There are actual-size photos of the NAS on the sides of the box, so you can see right away how big it is. Its technical specs and usage scenarios are also listed on its packaging.
The NAS is shipped together with an external power adapter (and several power cords for different regions), an Ethernet cable, a warranty description (the manufacturer provides a 3-year warranty), keys for disk bays, a stand, a quick start guide, and a CD with software.
The CD contains an electronic version of the user manual, a NAS setup tool called LaCie Network Assistant, and two backup tools (Genie Timeline Pro for Windows and Intego Back Up Manager Pro 8 for Mac OS). You get license keys for installing these programs on up to three PCs.
