"Solid performance NAS unit with impressive feature set."
2 August 2013
Pros: Works with a multitude of communications protocols (over 8). 6TB Internal Capacity (2 bays easy access) Front Air Cooling Intake/Rear Exhaust, Surveillance Camera Linking (limited models), Relatively Quiet, Highly configurable. UPS Support
Cons: Unit runs Hot. Plan on having good airflow in front and behind the unit. Mine strategically located near the AC vent. LED lamps are Bright (they act as the night light in the living room), The packaged software is an unnecessary resource hog.
Summary: Purchased a 2TB WD red drive for this unit. No problems what so ever with the setup and it's been working flawlessly ever since. I would recommend updating to the latest firmware, as it fixes a few issues.
Summary: This device loses connectivity and fails to responds. Still struggling to transfer back my files because outsourced iomega chat support is as useful as a butter fork. Not to mention they required the $50 for a telephone tech support call.
Summary: Works well. The drives default to RAID 1 which I like. Performance seems fine, no different than my Buffalo Drives. Configuration is a bit clumsy. Worst part of the system is the iOS support. I can't access the drive from outside my network. Buffalo wins on the app support.
Summary: I got this about 1 week ago. I was replacing two internal drives in RAID 1 and wanted to reuse them. They were Seagate 750GB. I plugged them in, plugged the unit in, and they worked fine. No problems at all. Overall performance is nice also. I have set up 5 scheduled backup jobs and they appear to work just fine.
Summary: I have had this NAS for about 6 weeks and it has never worked properly. It is VERY slow even on a Gigabit network. Sometimes you can't access data at all and you have to re-boot it. The IOMEGA forums cant help either. I have posted 2 requests for help. Close to 100 people have looked and my requests and no one has any suggestions at all. Save you money and by something else.
Cons: Certain, impending drive failure. Once a drive fails, access to data is lost, even when mirrored. 'Support' really means "replacement drive shipping service". Often unable to log into "award winning" support site.
Summary: I bought this adapter with the Iomega eGo 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive. I didn't have an extra PCIe slot until I removed my TV tuner, (no big deal), I also had to lengthen a power line to make this work properly. I didn't know it needed it's own power supply until after I installed it.
