Summary: I purchased this unit and found it easy to install and the software is fantastic, very intuitive. Now, the bad part. The hardware is junk. I used 6 2 TB drives that are supported by Iomega and I found after two days of running it would no longer backup and gave error messages stating the drives were...
Pros: Fast and reliable NAS. Great integration with Active Directory. Options for teaming NICs for load balancing and throughput are great features. Installed @ client site and took backup time from 30 days to 12 hours.

Summary: I do photography for fun, and I've quickly outgrown my 2TB RAID 1 array where I've been archiving my digital pictures (thanks 5d Mk2!). I thought this would be a perfect solution - feature-packed, huge storage capacity options, and at the time I bought them, they had a $250 rebate each.
Summary: This is a good SAN device. I don't use it for the frivolous features like print serving and facebook uploading. I needed a SOHO disk array I could use iSCSI to connect to and run multiple VMWare clients from.
Pros: Good hardware fit and finish. External Power supply easily replaced in the future. Nice LCD, informative. Super quiet fans - They run as slow as they can and it is quiet.
Cons: 1) LACP is problematic. Most reboots require pulling link on the ethernet cable to bring the LACP bundle up and make the device reachable. 2) Array rebuild process has hung on multiple tests. Had to reboot to continue the rebuild. 3) Software RAID writes 3rd party partitions to your drives. There...

Summary: the device is pretty good. I have 3TB's in the bays and they have worked very, very well. BUT, when I called to contact customer service, just to ask a simple question, they wanted to charge me a fee...
Summary: A solid device that takes care of all my company's network storage needs. Whether I am inside the office or outside on travel all my files are accessible through the Iomega personal cloud. StoreCenter px6 comes with 6 bays along with hot swap drive carriers.
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.
Summary: I was happy to receive the product and installed 3 2TB drives. The system came right up and I loaded up their software. My windows 7 software crashed due to their security software and was nasty trying to unravel the mess. I was able to get the system back up and running.
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.
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.
