Hello!

Since no one has jumped in…

I have no experience with the LAMU product, but their website has a bunch of red flags.

  • No backup strategy beyond placing everything on one drive.
  • The drive appears to be super cheap. The software by itself costs the same price as the smallest drive. Price jumps appear to cover only minimal increases in drive prices as the size goes up. I would be concerned about the longevity of the hardware.
  • Only accessible by other systems on the same Wi-Fi network, and then only via a web browser. This isn’t very user friendly and covers a very basic user experience.
  • Requires installation on a Windows computer, which must be running at all times for even the minimal access by other devices to happen.
  • Appears to be dependant on digital files that already have date/time/location metadata included. No help with pictures outside of the digital realm.
  • No support for any high-quality file formats (TIF, RAW, etc.)
  • No support for Apple computers

So, if your client only has digital photos and does not want to access them outside of the home (except using already existing cloud accounts they may have), then the product might do a small version of what you offer, but it’s a long ways off from something that is full service.

Many thanks!
