The best of La Cie. Weird their own offerings are still on NAS OS3. It looks like LaCie's future is kinda grim at the moment.

 

Anyone knows what the chassis is made of for Pro and non-Pro versions? Also, are you reviewing both the Marvell based and the Intel based lines, or just the non-pro atm?

LaCie will likely mothball the old NAS line and stick with DAS products. There's not much point in offering both, but then again, some people really like that aluminum body and don't mind paying for it. 

 

For review we have the 2-bay and 4-bay standard. Pro units should be here soon though.

Good, I wanna know the actual speed difference Marvell vs intel and the chassis build quality difference, if any, so don't hesitate to crack it open ;)

 

Also the LaCie's aluminum chassis and noctua fans are very nice. As a Mac-oriented brand it makes no sense for seagate to kill off their lineup just because they have an offering that works with mac and runs the same OS. WD is very clear about their Mac-oriented products, same applies to G-tech, even though they have gone the DAS route, obviously, but it was a rather silly move, to say the least.
