5* Great NAS
Reviewed by Adele on 24/08/2012
Owning a small office I have experienced many backup solutions in the past. Anyone remember tape backups? I got sick of calling in an external IT company every time we had a small problem. Thankfully using the Genie Backup Manager Pro software on the 2big I was able to configure our office backups in no time! Everything works like a charm.
5* so far so good

I'm impressed with the read/write speeds that this drive is capable of. I use it for backups and file sharing, and so far the unit hasn't skipped a beat.
5* Nice system
Reviewed by Nicole on 01/07/2013
Always needing more storage for our studio I bought this drive and it's been a fabulous addition to our rack room. The 2Big is very simple to operate with the browser interface. I'm also using it as the iTunes server to keep the beats pumping while I work. Great system, overall.
5* Great Product
Reviewed by anonymous on 06/10/2013
This drive is just amazing. It's exactly what I was looking for. I can be sure all my data is safe either on the drive with hot-swap bays in RAID1 or on the cloud. It's also great for file sharing and accessing on the go. Fantastic bit of gear.
5* Great NAS
Reviewed by Julian F on 15/12/2013
I use this 6TB NAS in many more ways than I'd anticipated when I ordered it. I wanted it primarily for backups but since then I've started using it exclusively for sharing files to clients and remotely via the apps. So very uselful to have on my network, with just an incredible amount of flexibility, from the hot swap bays to the USB backup option.
5* simple to use
Reviewed by Hector on 25/10/2012
This unit was very simple to set up and it's very easy to use. I am Mac user and this NAS is compatible with Time Machine – very nice. Took me less than half an hour to set it up and now my backups are completely automated and secure. Very happy with this drive.
5* Solid network drive
Reviewed by Steven on 21/03/2013
This is a great NAS, I would recommend it to any small business. We use it for backups in RAID 1 mode for extra reliability, it's much cheaper to run and easier to set up than a professional server space. Overall, it's a safe, and convenient solution, I am very pleased with it.
5* Great NAS
Reviewed by Hugo on 02/05/2013
I've done a fair share of looking around before choosing this NAS, and so far I haven't been disappointed. In general, the reviews were accurate - it's quick, easy to install and use. It's also relatively quiet, and the craftsmanship of this drive is top notch.
5* Fantastic Drive
Reviewed by Mayra D on 04/09/2013
This model comes with twin 3TB drives in hot swap bays, and it's really easy to install and run on the network. The desktop interface is cool, and the remote access software for mobile apps is very handy.
5* Works Great!
Reviewed by Coco on 28/09/2012
I've been using LaCie backup products for years, always been really happy with them. This model is no exception – huge capacity, nice design and very easy to set up and to use. I use it for my main backups and then run another 'deep storage' backup for some very important files. It's a very dependable system, I'd recommend it to anyone.
