LaCie Ethernet Disk Mini Home 500GB review

Small, but not necessarily simple

Jump to Section:

Our Verdict

A tidy and capable storage solution, but its basic connectivity limits appeal

For

  • Slim and compact
  • Good feature set

Against

  • Only one USB port
  • Frustrating setup

A slightly fiddly and time-consuming set-up procedure nevertheless gives way to a good set of features for sharing your files on a home network or across the internet.

The slimline LaCie offers further options for backing up folders automatically but the single USB port only connects to a PC, so you can't attach a second hard drive or use the Disk Mini as a printer server.
