Lacie, which we’ve largely criticized in recent time for minor product iterations, has just blown us away with the LaCie Wireless Space. Yes, it’s another hard drive that comes in 1TB and 2TB capacities, but what makes this sucker different is the built-in WiFi.
Much like Apple’s Time Capsule, which is a wireless hard drive, the LaCie Wireless Space is fully compatible with Apple’s Time Machine backup system. That means no more snaking cords or dragging your hard drive to your computer(s) to back up its contents.
Got content to share? No problem, because the Lacie Wireless Space is UPnP/DLNA compatible and syncs with iTunes. That means you can play music, movie and photos on any computer in the home or office.
The Wireless Space can also serve as a Gigabit router, a WiFi Extender (you’ll already need a wireless router) and access point for printers, meaning you can put just about make everything wireless.
The LaCie Wireless Space arrives this October and will start at $229.99.
