Granted, the LaCie spec sheet (attached) seems to answer my question, but I've been misled by LaCie in the past and other users have claimed having trouble with Time Machine with NAS devices.
I'm looking into purchasing the 2big NAS
and am wondering if anyone out there has any experience with this or a similar LaCie NAS. I also have a couple-year-old LaCie 4big NAS, and that one I can tell you does NOT work with Time Machine. So, if they have corrected the issue, I'm just wondering if it's as easy as Time Machine automatically recognizing the NAS on the network or do I have to physically attach it via USB?
My second question is the Print Server capability. Does anyone have any experience setting this up with a Mac? I have a Canon Pixma MX700. Do I attach this via the USB-A or B? Any magic dance or software necessary to get it recognized?
Also, due to the limited number of USBs, I'm hoping I can attach the printer to one of the USBs, and another external drive to the other. Thoughts?
