The product integrates easily with existing Windows domains using Active Directory and it allows user, groups, share, and quota management.

The LaCie d2 Network 2 helps you to reduce power consumption by switching to idle mode (where the disk spins off) after a determined inactivity time. In addition, it also integrates UPS support through its USB port to ensure proper shutdown in case of power failure. On top of that, its exclusive aluminum fanless heat sink design makes it your ecological partner - it's recyclable and ROHS-compliant.

5* Good product
Reviewed by Adam on 20/08/2012
I already have an external drive in my office I but needed an additional form of backup. With the easy integration of the d2 Network 2 with NAS OS2 I could easily create a second tier of backups for our office. No more worry and no more calling the IT-guy every other day for help!
5* Very good
Reviewed by Acel on 27/01/2013
I bought this drive on a recommendation from a friend. No regrets so far. It's a simple network backup solution. It works very well and the admin interface is user-friendly.
5* great product
Reviewed by Natalie on 21/07/2013

Reviewed by Cooper on 20/03/2013
Got this drive a month ago. It's relatively compact, and very quiet. It was easy to setup. The speeds are good. The unit is great for remote access and file sharing.
5* Does everything it's supposed to
Reviewed by Dace on 29/05/2013
The best thing about this drive for me is its functionality, though the design and high quality construction are good too. It works quietly, has good speeds, and the web interface is user friendly. Easy to use and easy to navigate. Very pleased and would recommend it to anyone.
5* Works great
Reviewed by Catherine on 21/06/2013
I bought this primarily as a backup server for my home office and so far it hasn't skipped a beat. I had no problems setting it up. The speeds are good, and the build quality is outstanding.
5* Excellent design and performance
Reviewed by Piper on 04/08/2012
The design of this drive is really nice: I like the aluminium casing and the fan-less operation. I use d2 Network 2 for working with media files. It's so quiet that it doesn't disturb me at all. The storage capacity is great - 3 TB is a huge amount for my needs. I can stream my media files over the network, it's very convenient.
5* Nice NAS
Reviewed by Aramis on 16/09/2012
A universal, easy-to-use NAS drive. The design really makes it stand out from the crowd. An aluminium casing helps to disperse the heat and the drive works very quietly. I like that, it's a clever little touch. Apart from that, it's all straightforward – 3 TB, two different connection options and user-friendly software (although I use it with Time Machine).
5* Good Product
Reviewed by Marcel on 01/05/2013
This is an excellent NAS, I'm really glad that I bought it instead of a standard desktop drive. I've plugged it into my router, and have been using it as a file and backup server. The unit works very quietly. I believe the metal casing helps to cool it down. The design is very discreet. The speeds are good. I'd highly recommend it to anyone.
5* Excellent NAS
Reviewed by Anonymous on 13/08/2013
The power saving options are my favourite aspect of this device. The drive automatically powers up and down to the schedule that I've configured and if I need to access data outside of those hours it will wake and then power down again as needed. The aluminium exterior is also a nice change from black casings.
