Beware of the horrible support.

  • Summary: This device worked flawlessly for a year until I installed the latest firmware. Keeping in mind I am a storage professional for a living. I followed the instructions to the letter but it bricked my unit. After 3 weeks of waiting for this IN WARRANTY work, iomega\lenovo\emc has refused to send me a replacement unit. They demanded that I run an imager which 1. knowgly destroyed my 8 TB of data (I had to agree this was fine) and 2. imaged my device as a 6 bay nas.

cloud does not work. NAS unstable. Software not trustworthy.

  • Summary: I bought two identical StorCenter PX4-300d with one used for remote backups. I got the cloud to work for backup only once. After that, it always fails with the message "Personal Cloud is not available because the `pcloudd' service is not started." The task manager shows the pcloudd service is running. The task cannot be killed from task manager so one could restart it.

DO NOT BUY This Unit

  • Summary: This unit has significant problems and is a piece of junk that does not meet its specifications. A few of the problems I noted: The unit could not even find my C drive, even with special `discovery program' I downloaded from Iomega. This problem occurred in the main copy program. The `Quick Copy" program, that was supplied with the unit, was able to find my C drive without any problems.

Promises a lot, delivers very little

  • Summary: Despite the promised specs, the product and Iomega support have been overwhelmingly disappointing. Initially, the device was easy to setup and average throughput for a single sustained transfer was 75MB/s over Gigabit LAN. Unfortunately, total throughput dropped to ~30MB/s with more than one network connected (i.e. two laptops). I tried configuring NIC bonding using load balancing, but performance actually decreased.
