Designed by Neil Poulton, the LaCie Network Space 2 is a NAS (network area storage) media server. With 1TB of drive space, the NAS drive supports both MAC and Windows based workstations.
The unit is described as a complete solution that can handle digital data files as well as stream media files across the home network to other network connected devices such as video game systems. Even when your personal computer is off, the LaCie drive can be used to download torrents and other files.
The NAS drive also includes a USB 2.0 host connection that allows for the direct transfer of files from a portable USB drive to the LaCie drive without the need of an intermediary computer.
To round out its features, the LaCie drive also comes with iTunes server software that allows you directly stream music files. Currently available in Europe at a retail price of £134.99, it is expected that the LaCie Network Space 2 NAS device will be become worldwide before the years end.
