Reviews and Problems with Iomega 34766 2 TB Network Hard Drive
Showing 1-10 of 17
Poor life expectancy in my experience having bought 3 similar iomega drives
28 September 2014
Summary: This was my second or third Iomega unit to purchase. I purchased a total of 3 of these over time some but not recently. I had one at home and got this for office. The unit at home quit working. Now the one I have at office also failed. i would not recommend buying one of these. I think they run continuously or something. they just dont last and my online backup programs dont automatically backup these add on drives. Requires additional fee.
Summary: I never got it really up and running (and I have an IT background). Installer is badly programmed, does not really work on Mac and Linux. Android apps are non-functional. In the end, I took out the 2GB hard drive and used at as a plain removable hard disk over USB.
Summary: I was looking for nice and inexpensive backup and share solution for my family data including videos, music and pictures. Unit installation is easy and all computers can see it w/o problems. Problem start when my kids was trying to print pictures from this storage, almost all and for sure every other picture was corrupted or partially destroyed (only half of picture). I didn't see it earlier because all thumbnails was OK.
Summary: I purchased this product and installed the software (CD) on my computer as instructed. I called tech support and troubleshot the device and found the firmware on the device was out of date and is why the device could not be detected. They said I would have to by a thumb drive and download the new firware from their website and install it. After arguing about having to buy a thumbdrive to correct their error they mailed me a thumbdrive with the correct software.
Annoying customer service. partial refund for faulty item. Not Happy.

Summary: I was trying to use this product, but I was unlucky they send me faulty item after few months I came to know USB port are faulty, they didn't co-operate me and Amazon will take responsibility to give you partial refund, after that its your liability. If you want to buy this item check if USB port are working or not immediately. Customer service is annoying.
Summary: Got it setup copied movies, tried to copy images, and music failed after a minute, and I havent been able to steam via network connection (not wireless wont even try if LAN connections wont work 1GB) all I can do is see the dumb slideshow by default and the list of my movies. Plus it makes a cracking noise every 10 minutes as if it was a sever working hard, really it isnt working at all.
Summary: This thing was worthless! 20% of all the photos I transfered were corrupt I would only suggest you buy this drice if you want to throw your money away. I sent it back the next day and spend an extra $30 or so on a WD drive that (so far) is working great. Stay away!
Summary: I purchased this product from the first day did not work, the manufacturer (IOMEGA) sent a replacement by a new one as a guarantee but I had to pay for two extra shipments. The second device is not working either on my computer (not compatible with windows running 64-bit), I need to use another of my office, to pass this document to your hard drive fails storage says I have to delete all 200 gb already had transferred and start over.
Summary: Don't even think about buying this...it is what the majority of reviewers say it is: "a piece of garbage"...I bought this not only for the cloud functionality, but to store my pictures on so that I could save up some room on my hard drive. Well, after having this for about six months now, I can safely say that it does not work the way it's supposed to. 90% of the time, I cannot even connect to it.
Summary: I tried to like this product, I really did, but after a year of using it, and 2 device failures, I have to say that Iomega created an absolutely worthless product. Do not waste your money or risk your data. I purchased this device in March 2011 from Amazon after significant research. I was looking for a simple product that could serve as a backup device and also allow me to access my data from the office or while I was on the road.
