In Part Three of our Lacie 5big NAS Pro review, we look at media streaming capabilities.  One of the core requirements that I have for NAS units is seamless management of media for streaming to a variety of devices.  Let’s see how the 5big NAS Pro does!

In Part One, I looked at general setup and installation.

In Part Two, I looked at Remote Access and Wuala installation.

Apology for the Delay

This review series has been delayed by about a month and I apologize for that.  I had to take a trip to Japan for work, and while I was gone, our basement flooded, meaning that I had to dismantle most of my test equipment until that was cleaned up.  Now that we’re back up and running, I am back at this review series.  Look for good stuff coming soon!

UPnP Streaming

Go ahead and log into your 5big NAS Pro dashboard.  You’ll see this:

    Hi Jim,

    Thank you for the in depth review of the streaming capabilities of this NAS. I am considering the purchase of this particular model and I was wondering if it is capable of streaming video to an apple tv. I currently have a qnap 219P II and am looking to expand my storage.

    Keep up the good work!
