LaCie Wireless Space hard drive ditches the wires

LaCie has announced its first all-in-one wireless storage hard drive, the Wireless Space for people that want more storage without the hassle of wires.

The new drive, which has been designed by Neil Poulton and costs £179.99 will let you connect it to your existing Wi-Fi network, allowing you to access files wirelessly throughout the home, and can serve as a central storage solution for all your backups.

If that wasn't enough you'll also be able to increase your Wi-Fi performance, as the Wireless Space can also act as a b/g/n access point, and even serve as a full-featured router.
 
“There are a variety of network devices you need to buy to have a full solution to connect your computers, share media and back up your files,” remarked Julien Ott, Product Manager for Network Attached Storage, LaCie.
 
The drive is also compatible with UPnP/DLNA and iTunes, so 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 while Genie Timeline Software for scheduled backups will sort out PC users.

The LaCie Wireless Space is available as of today, in 1TB and 2TB capacity through the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Corner, and LaCie Reseller+ starting at £179.90.
