Do not waste your money and time on this
30 July 2015
Summary: Do not waste your money and time on this. This is utter junk! I wasted an entire week just to get it working and 2 days later, it shuts off completely and won't turn back on again. Do not buy this used or refurbished, it's not worth it. I wouldn't even take it if it was free.
Summary: It'll quite happily send me an email when there's an update, although sometimes it just installs updates my itself... That was a surprise, when I logged in and all the branding had changed to Lenovo. Now, at 2 years old, it just died.
Summary: I have been wrestling with this unit since I purchased it two years ago. From the moment I received it I had to use customer support to get it to operate with my Macs. The drive would fail repeatedly and have to make new back-ups from scratch that would take days.
Summary: These work well while they last, but we have just had a total data access failure caused by a SINGLE drive failing. This is not what you expect from a RAID system, and therefore I wouldn't recommend this system to anyone.
I lost backup data inside & cloud service has issues

Summary: It worked just fine till suddenly the hard drive failed to start & my data all locked inside it & they're not recoverable by normal means. The main purpose for this is to be a safe backup, i don't want to have backup for backup thing.
I have had this unit for several years now actually ...

Summary: I have had this unit for several years now actually I am on my 2nd unit as the manufacturing sent me a new one after I lost all my data 3 times with the 1st unit. most due to hard drive failures.
Summary: There is no means to by pass the motherboard of the unit. If it quits, all data is lost unless you want to spend thousands to retrieve it. Bad unit, bad company. This is the third item I purchased from Iomega that just quit after the warranty is up.
Summary: The drives in the iomega storcenter have a high failure rate. If you do decide to buy one of these, be sure you are mirroring as at least one drive will fail within the first year. I have had two drives fail so far.
