Unreliable and prone to failure

John Donohoe, Amazon
26 July 2013
  • Summary: At its core, this product is meant to act as a storage device and it has some additional bells and whistles on it that adds utility (it will share USB devices in the network, cloud storage and access) Problems: - BIG PROBLEM - The controller OS is on the harddrives. Its not firmware on the case. That means if the raid fails or the OS kernal corrupts, you cant just take the drives to another system to recover the data.

Iomega IX-200 - Dont !

Tony, Amazon
14 May 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this device last year, and have persevered with it because of the Iomega good name; but my totally objective conclusion is .. if you want to use it as a personal cloud, don't buy. The unit might work great as storage on an internal / private network, but its totally unreliable as a cloud; and if you turn on the media server, you get no data transfer performance at all.

Unreliable operation

L. Green, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • Summary: Just so you know, I'm an IT proferssional and spent a significant time evaluating this drive before buying. However I'm very disappointed in its actual performance. Have had this NAS for over a year. Right now I'm getting a flashing white light (I've had this happen before) with no reasonable explanation for it. One drive has already failed. Even when I had two, I found myself repeatedly rebuilding the RAID.

Wanted to love it, but returned it

Deon "Tech Junkie", Amazon
6 December 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this device in the hopes of storing all of my digital content on it, then accessing them via the wireless network. I went as far as storing music and photos on the device and trying to access them via iPhoto and iTunes. Needless to say, the performance in trying to access mp3 files over a wireless network is lackluster at best. That's not a comment on the NAS, but moreso on the nature of file streaming over a wireless network.

Beyond loud.

James G., Amazon
3 November 2012
  • Summary: I've had my 4TB model for a while and set it up as a Raid 1 in order to provide some peace of mind for storage of music, videos, software, and other documents. 1. Main problem with this device as others have mentioned is that this thing is LOUD. I opened up the case today and what I believe is a) these are poor quality Seagate drives that are louder than usual and b) the design and materials of the chassis essentially turns your device into an elaborate speaker that...

Did not work for me

Joe Dixon "Dr. Joe", Amazon
24 September 2012
  • Summary: I wanted reliable backup storage for MacBook and iMac. I bought two of these drives so one could be off-site. Product did not work on Lion or Mountain Lion. I could get some access but Time Machine did not work and iPhoto and Aperture files could not be read from the Iomega file format.

Remote Access is UNRELIABLE

~B. Walsh, Amazon
29 August 2012
  • Summary: It works fine from home, which is where the unit is located. However, my better-half has spent many, many hours trying to keep this thing accessible from our work computers at the office, all to no avail. It's simply unusable unless we're at home, which is where we rarely need it.

Must be IT guru to use

Kyle Patterson, Amazon
10 November 2011
  • Summary: If ssh, manual firmware updates, ps -aux, scare you or mean nothing to you I wouldn't suggest getting this NAS. I work with computers for a living and when I bought this I wanted something easy to use that I didn't have to manually configure and tinker with, when I could be using that time elsewhere. The web interface is easy to use but this NAS is riddled with problems that aren't able to be solved through that interface.
