Summary: It will work If you are a hacker with many time to spend adjusting and fine tunning this piece of crap device. - Untable; - Unreliable; - Few suport from manufacturer; - Not eco friendlly (it warms a lot and keep your hard drives at full load reducing their life time); - Poor network performance in wireless mode. In order to keep this device working properly I have disable many funcionalities such as the wifi and the media services.
It was a real challenge to get good use out of it !

You must have a small USB pen drive with the imager software in the root directory. The software can be downloaded from here: [...]. Follow the instructions given by Iomega to reset the iConnect unit back to its original factory settings. 2.
Great once Software installed - not so good Customer Service Facility

Summary: Product did not work at first. Was going to send it back, but eventually managed to get hold of Customer Support of its manufacturer (rather then supplier) Told this item was not sold any more. But after some diagnostics found that the Software was not installed and I had to down load form Iomega Site and self install, Needed a FLASH USD memory stick. Once this was done, it is working perfectly, and I have it connected to two networks, one Wired and the other WireLess.
Summary: I read the other reviews just AFTER ordering the product so I was a bit annoyed with myself for not having researched better before buying, and given the reveiws I didn't have very high hopes. It was a pleasant surprise when it arrived because I unboxed it, read the one-page quick start guide and was up and running in about 20 minutes. On install it tries to bundle in a couple of free apps (which are usually rubbish so I chose a custom install without them).
Summary: I have no issues with the functionality of the device - it's easy to set up and easy to use - other than its lack of compatibility with MacOS X 10.7, but the performance is _dismal_. There's no other way to describe it. I top out at a couple of megabytes per second from an attached USB drive, which really isn't very good at all. So, it's not a bad device, but also not overly useful if performance is a concern.
Summary: This item was really easy to set up and link all of my external drives to. It's great now that I don't have to have my PC on to be able to access my files on external drives. Only real downside with this is the transfer speed. Less than 0.5Mb/sec transfer rate on WiFi this means files can take hours to transfer on to or off of external drives, this also caused lots of buffering problems when streaming videos through it.
I found this device erratic and basically unusable - and support from iOmega poor
2 December 2011
Summary: I have found the box is basically unusable. I have had it set up for a week or so. Far more times than not, the iConnect software shows that the iConnect is not available on the network. Then, somehow, the iConnect will just appear. However, the problem doesn't stop there. Sometimes the iConnect will show that the external storage drive is connected to the iConnect and sometimes not - though the drive is always connected.
