LaCie have long been a provider of top hard drive solutions and the d2 is no exception – this is a professional file server built for office use as it allows up to 50 users to be connected, with a maximum of 15 being able to use it at any one time. Available in 500GB, 1TB or 1.5TB – Amazon appears to have a 2TB version also, but LaCie confusingly doesn’t display this on their website. This should see any small office run perfectly and would also be suitable for the power home user that wants more storage and flexibility in their wireless network.
The d2 supports Windows, Mac and Linux users alike and supports multimedia playback through iTunes and other DLNA multimedia devices. Naturally, TimeMachine is supported for Mac users. Two (2) expansion ports on the back allow for additional storage to be connected to the d2, as well as data imports and external backups all via USB 2.0 or eSATA. A nice touch is the inclusion of a BitTorrent-compatible torrent server.
Price: $243.99 (1.5TB model)
