LaCie (http://www.lacie.com) has introduced its first network-attached storage solution to feature Wi-Fi. The LaCie Wireless Space can operate as a file or media server for multiple Mac and PC users, from anywhere in the home – making it the most compatible and multifunctional network hard drive on the market.
Leveraging Wi-Fi technology, the Wireless Space can connect to your existing Wi-Fi network, allowing you to access files wirelessly throughout the home, and can serve as a central storage solution for your back-ups. If you wish to increase your Wi-Fi performance, the Wireless Space can also act as a B/G/N access point, and even serve as a router.
For users with a large media library, the Wireless Space can also act as a media server. It’s compatible with UPnP/DLNA and iTunes, and you can stream music, movies and photos from a central location and play them on any device. Additionally, the Wireless Space is Time Machine compatible.
Designed exclusively for LaCie, Neil Poulton’s sleek, polished black design is engineered for natural heat dissipation and near-silent operation. The LaCie Wireless Space is currently available in Europe in 1TB and 2TB capacities. Both models will be available in the US this October through the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Corner, and LaCie Reseller+ starting at $229.99.
