LaCie Network Space 2: Simplifying The Network Storage Experience

LaCie today announced the LaCie Network Space 2, design by Neil
Poulton – a leading-edge Network Attached Storage (NAS) and media
server. The LaCie Network Space 2 combines the performance of a
full-featured NAS solution, with a unique and customised way to manage
the total experience.

Easy to Use
LaCie Network Space 2 was designed to be as
convenient and user-friendly as a classic USB external hard drive. With
the advanced LaCie Network Assistant, you can be up and running in a
few short steps. To help you manage your desired product preferences,
the LaCie Network Assistant now offers new dashboard functionality. You
can customise the dashboard with useful widgets to access network and
drive information, administer user accounts and monitor drive capacity.

Home Entertainment
LaCie Network Space 2 makes it easy to stream
photos, music and videos to computers on the local network or to any
UPnP/DLNA compliant devices like PlayStation®3 or Xbox® 360. It
includes iTunes® server software so Mac and PCs can see and play
content from the LaCie Network Space 2 directly through the iTunes
interface. It also includes Download Machine that allows multiple
torrent downloads, even when your computer is turned off.

High Performance and Versatility
While the LaCie Network Space
2 can perform at speeds of up to 65MB/s** over the Ethernet connection,
you may choose to leverage it as an external USB hard drive –
connecting it directly to your computer for off-network file transfer
and accessibility.

Additionally, there is a USB 2.0 host connection in the front of the
device that allows you to connect a USB flash drive, external hard
drive or digital camera, and import files automatically without the
need of a computer.

Eco Friendly
The LaCie Network Space 2 includes a built-in power
management widget, which lets you control both the light on your drive,
as well as your drive’s Eco Management; placing the drive into a low
power setting at scheduled time intervals or when the product is
inactive. Additionally, the LaCie Network Space 2 can be awakened
through its Wake-on-LAN functionality, making it a powerful, efficient
and eco-friendly media server for the home.

“The LaCie Network Space 2 is a state-of-the-art solution for
customers wanting to share and store media files from anywhere in the
house,” said Patrick Salin, LaCie Digital Home Business Unit Manager.
“LaCie’s new dashboard functionality makes it simple for users to enjoy
the features of network storage, and further shows our commitment to
enhancing the experience of our customers.”

Designed exclusively for LaCie by Neil Poulton, the compact LaCie
Network Space 2 has a sleek, mirror-polished black finish with a blue
LED strip on its underside that creates an ambient glow.

The LaCie Network Space 2 is available in 1 TB
capacity late October for Europe and mid November worldwide, through
the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Corner, LaCie Reseller+, and through
authorised resellers and retailers, at the suggested retail price of
£139 (Incl VAT) For more product information, visit
