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.
Excerpt: The Good Easy to configure - Fast transfer speeds - Straightforward web-based interface - Comparatively inexpensive - Wide range of supported standards - Works with Windows and Mac The Bad Loud when in use - Interface lacks media previews - Occasional crashes The storage specialist Iomega has continued to update its entire range of products, including the dual-drive ix2-series of network-attached storage (NAS) devices.
Pros: Easy to configure - Fast transfer speeds - Straightforward web-based interface - Comparatively inexpensive - Wide range of supported standards - Works with Windows and Mac
Cons: Loud when in use - Interface lacks media previews - Occasional crashes
Excerpt: While Apple’s Time Capsule is very much a ‘plug it in and forget about it’ backup device, in contrast, the Iomega StorCenter ix2-200 Cloud Edition is packed with useful features. However, you’ll need a fair amount of technical know-how and patience to get to grips with them all – although it’s worth the effort.
High-capacity, competitive price, Time Machine and Amazon S3 compatible, impressive range of features
Complex to configure, dense, technical documentation
