LaCie unveils all-in-one media storage and Wi-Fi access point

By Mike Fischer on
In a press release yesterday LaCie announced the release of its Wireless Space line of Wi-Fi storage solutions. Connecting to your existing Wi-Fi network, the external drive aims to provide centralized storage for backups and media files. It is both PC and Mac compatible and has support for UPnP/DNLA and iTunes, allowing steaming of both video and music files.

An added bonus is the option to use the drive as a wireless b, g, or n access point, boosting the range of your current network. The Wireless Space can even be set up to serve as a full-featured router, thereby filling the role of a complete all-in-one device for your home networking needs. Even better, the design of the drive is "engineered for natural heat dissipation and near-silent operation," an important factor for always-on devices.

The press release states that the drive is currently available only in Europe with a US release expected in October. Pricing is set at $229.99 (1TB) and $349.99 (2TB), respectively.
