If only...

Steve Aldrich, Amazon
24 January 2013
  • Summary: Seems like a great product. If only the software/setup was more linear (step by step). There are problems with running backup features from the device softare (downloading backups to the device); and also problems pushing the backup to the device from my PC.

Iomega Nas ix2-200 (6tb)

rob s., Amazon
1 August 2012
  • Summary: Good product, but was running real slow...it is working correctly and quick now after 2 different calls to Iomega...according to them it comes with a bunch of junk that has to be turned off for it too run quickly. Also, setting up a static on this unit is almost imperative if you want the unit to be fast.

OK, but noisy

Mark W. Wilson, Amazon
29 June 2012
  • Summary: This Network Attached storage works well, but I have not tried out many of its advanced features. I have it setup for RAID 1 (disk duplication) which is the default. My only complaint is that it is very noisy. Sounds like a bunch of marbles rattling around in a tin can. My wife keeps asking what is so noisy in the other room. Maybe one day I will replace the drives with solid state ones.

  • Summary: The cooling fan quit working after two weeks of use. Up until then, it worked perfectly. I hope this is just a freak failure as the device was doing everything we needed it to do.

Works well but noisy

Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 July 2011
  • Summary: I have been quite pleased with this item - it works as advertised, except I haven't yet been able to set it up for remote access (though this may be something to do with my PC setup). One cirticism is that the disc drives are very noisy when reading/writing. Much noisier than any other drive in the house. I'm not sure if this is a function of the size of the drives, but you would definitely have to think about where you put the Storcenter.

Makes a lot of noise and I can't backup all my computers to it

Citizen John, Amazon
30 March 2011
  • Summary: I wasn't prepared for this sleek-looking external RAID 1 drive to make as much noise as it does. No other computing equipment that I have makes such noise - or gets as hot. It bothers me not just because I don't like too much white noise, but also because I've made a conscious effort to go with energy-saving devices. The data transfer speeds are low, which hasn't become a problem for me yet.

Great potential-needs work

Jon Beining, Amazon
17 November 2010
  • Summary: I have used this unit for file and media storage during the last nine months. The Good Great price for a NAS Copy Jobs/Rsync , used for backing up files to another NAS works very well. (Having mirrored drives does not mean that the data is secure!) Low power consumption Quiet - Only noise is from the drives The Bad The device must have two drives installed to function. If both drives fail, there is no recovery other than getting replacement drives from Iomega.

Good for backup, underdeveloped features

Roman Shulman, Amazon
19 September 2010
  • Summary: The unit is fast and quiet, seems stable and reliable (no problems or disconnects so far). Because I use it not only for backup but for storage of shared files and media libraries, I need the unit itself to be backed up, too ("backup of backup"). I attached an external drive and created Copy Jobs, which worked great. However, I found that the unit treats the external drive as one of its native folders and automatically scans it for media contents.

Does its job

Sanjay N. Coutinho "SanZhay", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this drive to backup my Mac mini. Works seamlessly with Mac's time machine. Needs some knowledge of computers to setup but if you have some basics, its very straightforward to configure and use

Does Everything....EXCEPT MozyHome Online Backup

S. Nutt, Amazon
23 December 2009
  • Summary: After a ton of research, returning of the Apple Time Capsule, and skipping the smaller Network Attached Storage by Iomega, I bought the ix2-200. It does everything better plus it "apparently" had the ability to use MozyHome online back-up for $4.95 a month. After several hours on the phone with Iomega and Mozy, both owned by EMC, we all concluded the MozyHome will not back-up a NAS. Now, I could spring for MozyPro, for $.50 a Gig per month ($250 a month for 500 Gig).
