Doesn't do what it promises
3 April 2012
Summary: I bought this machine for two reasons. 1) My old NAS was failing and 2) it touted its "iTunes server" streaming functionality. As a NAS, it seems to work fine...others can speak better to what it can and can't do. As far as I'm concerned, it stores all my files just fine.
Summary: I have Ix4-200d for 5 month. the bad things: 1. Very Very slow - 100Kbytes/sec read Update 2011: I replace the switch to Cisco, now speed is OK. 2. No ability to replace hard disk (HD) to diffrent kind , you need iomega selected hd, since the SW use the HD as part of the system.
Summary: If you have a similar profile as mine, this review is for you. But first, a note about 64 bit systems. After much frustration, I discovered (EMC/Iomega sure didn't tell me) that the Retrospect Express HD software included in this package does not work well with a 64 bit system.
Summary: This NAS is targeted towards small business and home offices. This review will only focus a couple of key In general it's a all around decent drive with only one issue I found. I couldn't measure the drives read performance using the free utility LAN Speed Test.
