Bought this unit recently after I needed increased storage space. I went with this four bay RAID 5 capable model because of the security and space it offered. The raid bays are simple to manage and install, and the speed of the USB 3.0 connection is awesome. Safe secure speedy storage, that's what this machine does superbly well.

The last time I needed to buy data storage for my computer, 1TB seemed enough, but I filled it up pretty quickly. This time I've done my research, and invested in this unit because I can increase the capacity easily, while still having it as a RAID for safety.

This is a very fine piece of hardware. It's reliable, easy of use, and has a wealth of smart features and options. The unit itself is pretty quiet despite containing four drives. The option to expand capacity by stacking multiple units is handy too.

Easy to setup and install this RAID system will virtually run itself, if like me you are just using it for a backup system. The unit comes with the LaCie desktop manager for system alerts and setting up the front shortcut button, and backup software too, for both PC or Mac. It's also very well built and it's USB 3.0.

I am very happy with this RAID array. I bought it for my home office, as I needed a lot of storage and redundancy for my video-editing projects. The transfer speed is great, the data is easily accessible and the quality of the unit is simply outstanding. I'm very pleased with it.

The 8TB 4big Quadra, running RAID 5 + spare, has 4TBs of actual storage capacity. But the redundancy of hard drives, and the hot swappable nature of the machine itself if a drive goes down, which they just do sometimes, means save time, and money in that horrible moment. The unit itself is elegantly simple and the cooling system it's got will hopefully help the drives last beyond the 3 year warranty.

Great device, the build quality is just outstanding! We run it in RAID 5 mode, and even then there is more than enough space for all of our backups. It's very fast, USB 3.0 transfer speed is just what I've been dreaming about. The hard drives it comes with seem to be very good quality. The unit works great, no complaints!

I bought this drive for work as a file server, although I use it for media storage as well. It works well in a Mac environment, both functionally and visually. The design is simple and stylish. The power management software is easy to use and helps to save energy.

We purchased this NAS to store work documents and project backups at out studio a few months ago. The RAID modes are easily configurable, and the hot-swappability of HDDs provides extra security. It's good to know that, if any drives fail, we won't lose any data. It works very well in a Mac environment.
