LaCie has expanded its range of simplified network-attached storage (NAS) solutions with the launch of the Network Space MAX.
Available in 2TB (2x1TB) or 4TB (2x2TB) capacities, the unit features a choice of USB 2.0 or Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and is designed to offer secure, centralised storage and easy-to-use sharing functions.
Launched as an alternative to last year's Network Space 2, the Network Space MAX differentiates itself by sporting a duo of internal hard drives that support RAID modes 0 and 1 - the latter of which mirrors data across the two disks to provide added security.
In keeping with last year's model, the higher-capacity unit ships with Network Assistant software that promises to have you up and running within minutes, a built-in media server for streaming to any UPnP/DLNA-compliant device, and a remote access feature.
It's Apple Time Machine compatible, too, but it looks as though the Neil Poulton design is going to attract plenty of dust and fingerprints.
The LaCie Network Space MAX is available now priced at £234.99 for a 2TB model and £404.99 for the range-topping 4TB model.
