Reviews and Problems with Iomega StorCenter ix4-200d

Lousy, unreliable product
5 September 2013
Summary: I fully second the previous review. I own 3 Iomega ix4 - 200d (8 and 12 TB) . The software, accessibility in the network etc. are extremely cumbersome. Above all, it is very unreliable. The device freezes regularly, including the on-off switch, leaving no choice but to unplug the power, which is the last thing you want to do when there is 6 TB of content on it.
Unreliable with little or no useful support from Iomega

Summary: We've used 3 of these at work. One ix2 and two ix4's. The ix2 failed completely so we went for the ix4. This failed within warranty and Iomega sent out a refurbed drive. Why a refurb? It had probably failed somewhere else. Sent that back and got a new one. Within a year the second one failed so catastrophically that all our data was lost. Every last bit. I thought a RAID array was meant to prevent this sort of thing.
