LaCie Intros Network Space

LaCie today announced the Network Space, design by Neil Poulton. This newly available networked attached storage (NAS) and media server was designed specifically for easy home and small office use and is available in capacities of 500 gigabytes to 1 terabyte. The device features a mirror-polished finish, ultra-quiet fanless operation, and a unique blue LED strip that creates a rich ambient glow to "enhance" the storage experience.

The Network Space is a full-featured home server utilizing Gigabit Ethernet for localized data transfers from any networked PC or Mac. With an additional USB 2.0 port located on the front of the unit, users can connect any USB drive or camera to copy additional files or photos automatically without needing the local computer turned on.

According to the company, the device comes pre-built with two separate shares. One share is public for easy open access from any networked computer, while the other is password-protected for secured private use. LaCie Network Agent software is included to make access to the shares quicker and easier.

The Network Space also has the ability to stream multimedia files through DLNA-compatible UPnP media players, such as Xbox 360 and or Sony Playstation 3, or act as an iTunes music server. This benefits users by allowing them to watch videos on their television elsewhere in their house rather than needing to be in front of the computer. The device is also FTP accessible, enabling remote access to upload or download files from abroad through a static IP address.

The LaCie Network Space will be available starting in early September for Europe and early October worldwide. Prices will start at $149.99.
