Summary: I still like this unit and all the Iomega products I own. I don't like the idea of the unit and attached drives running 24/7 when I'm home or in town...seems like everything will just wear itself out.
Pros: Bought this to network 3 Iomega eGo portable hard drives (500GB each) and a printer onto my home newtork. When finally up and running it does the job. Have NOT set up remote online access yet, which was one of the reasons I bought it. Setting up the iConnect was slow; it's just not a fast piece o...
Cons: Unit was DOA, just flashing blue light. For me Iomega support has been very good. At first they thought the power supply was not putting out enough voltage to activate it and they shipped me a new one free and gave me incident number to call and let them know. When that did not fix it, they shipp...
Summary: Apart the awkward position of the USB plugs, the unit looks small and smart. It took me about 1 hour to get it out of the box, plug 3 USB HDDs and a printer, and to have the whole lot online on my home network.
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.

Summary: I connected the device to my home network 2 weeks ago (Gigabit ethernet and Wifi 802.11G). The installation was very easy but the access time are very slow: for instance when I want to look pictures on my laptop (iConnect device connected to the ethernet network + router Wifi Belkin + Laptop on...

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.
Summary: It does what it claims to. It allows you to share a usb disk on your network in a pretty decent way. The only problems I've got are the transfer of big files (sometimes it fails during the transfer and you have to reupload the file) and the configuration of theTimeMachine backup which is close to a...
Summary: I got this so I could create a wireless home storage network, and also use it as a media server so I could stream my photos and music directly from an external hard drive and not have to keep my PC or laptop on all the time.
