LaCie 5big NAS device

I've been on the lookout for a decent NAS product with at least 4 hard drive slots. The 5big device might actually fit the bill. The only downside is that it doesn't come in a diskless version. That means you have to overpay for the drives, of course.

Some nice features include:

  • Active Directory integration
  • 2 x 1GB Ethernet ports
  • CIFS, FTP, HTTP and Bonjour
  • RAID 6
  • Integrated Bittorrent client
  • Integrated self-monitoring
  • 1 x 2.0 USB for external drives
  • 3 x eSATA for external drives
