Excerpt: The TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award winning Iomega StorCenter ix2-200 is a formidable contender in the market for network attached storage (NAS). The Iomega has four features found lacking in its nearest competitor, the Seagate BlackArmor NAS 110: support for Linux machines, support for Time Machine backups, three USB 2.0 ports instead of two and RAID (redundant array of independent disks) technology.
Pros: The StorCenter ix2-200 supports RAID (redundant array of independent disks).
Cons: The worst that can be said is that the generous technical support policy is no longer free after three years.

High-capacity, competitive price, Time Machine and Amazon S3 compatible, impressive range of features
Complex to configure, dense, technical documentation
Iomega StorCenter ix2-200 Cloud Edition NAS server
15 June 2012
Summary: Iomega StorCenter ix-2-200 Cloud Edition er en NAS-løsning. Den hører til den lidt mindre nørdede del af NAS-løsninger de findes på markedet. Iomega StorCenter ix2-200 henvender sig nok bedst til dem som gerne vil have en færdig NAS-løsning out-of-the-box. Den er nemlig med inkluderede harddiske og man skal derfor ikke ”bøvle” med, at montere dem og installere et styresystem. Når man først har fået den op af kassen, så kører den bare der ud af.
Pros: Prisen (2700kr), Inkluderet harddiske, Byggekvaliteten, Lavt strømforbrug (5W for idle og 17W for Load)
Cons: Ingen Wake On LAN (WOL), Kun USB 2.0, Ingen eSATA, Ydelsen kunne være bedre
