It was a real challenge to get good use out of it !
10 February 2013
Summary: It took me five times resetting the iConnect using the imager file to get it working to how I want it. Pre-requisites: -------------- 1. 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.
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).
Works well and extremely useful for at-home and remote access as well as a print server

Summary: I've seen the rather negative reviews but I have to say for me this has worked brilliantly. I use it as a print server as well as wireless storage with an external hard drive. At home the access is smooth and transfer speeds are respectable. The media server works well and the ability to access videos/music from by xbox and ps3 comes in handy.
5 stars for my needs but I'm not sure if that's true for everyone's needs.

Summary: I purchased this unit simply to add 2Tb of storage onto my network system and make it available to a total of 8PCs as and when required. It is simplicity itself to set up and run for disk services although it seems from other reviewers and users that the print server side of things is a bit flaky. My review doesn't cover that side of the device since I use one 24/7 PC as my print server anyway which is fine for me.
Summary: After searching a lot of similar products I finally decided to buy this one. Based on the reviews I was scepital that this may not work, but out of desperate need I decided to give this a shot. And guess what this did all I wanted to. Wirefree access to my external hardisk and wireless printing using a multifunction printer. However I agree that the product manual is a bit low in content. Otherwise a product that works great.
Summary: The first one was faulty but after a couple of calls to Iomega Customer Support they replaced it. The new one was set up in a matter of minutes and it works really well. I have three flash drives and a WD 250Gb MyBook connected and all work perfectly. The only USB drive that I haven't managed to get working is a 'no name' NAS box with a 250Gb HD installed bought from Maplin a few years ago, my guess is that the USB interface is incompatible.
Le produit qu'il faut quand on a plusieures ordis à la maison
18 March 2014
Summary: Quand vous avez plusieurs ordi de type différent (1 fixe, 1 transportable et 1 netbook), avec plusieurs utilisateurs dans la maison, et suceptible de passer d'un ordi à un autre en fonction des besoins de chacun, alors il est primordial de pouvoir stocker ses données en 1 lieu fixe et accessible depuis chaque ordinateur. Chaque disque dur externe relié à Iconnect reçoit une lettre (Y,Z...) comme un réseau d'entreprise.
Summary: Envoi rapide et soigné, matériel directement opérationnel. Fonctionne très bien (utilisation avec 2 DD externes). Je n'ai pas testé la fonction de connexion à distance via Internet. Je recommande !
