I wouldn't want this thing if it were free!

Summary: When this NAS is recognizing the authorized drives (not often) or when the cloud service/access is working (almost never)...this NAS is great! It is especially fun to ship it back to iomega (now lenovo) and to be scolded at by their customer service. I don't know if there are better NAS's out there but try a different model...nothing but trouble! I am glad I spent so much money filling it up with 4 TB drives!
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 corrupt. When I entered the software to investigate the drives show no level of corruption. There seems to be a bug in the communication between the NAS and the software.

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.
Slow, but Great Features... if you can get it to work.

Summary: I was in the market to purchase a NAS and after a lot of research was planning on purchasing the Synology DiskStation 5-Bay (Diskless) Scalable Network Attached Storage DS1511+ (Black) , but at the last minute received an e-mail with the Iomega StorCenter PX6-300d (diskless) 6-bay Network Storage 34769 on sale marked down considerably from the $1,149.99 Retail Price Tag.
Summary: I was happy to receive the product and installed 3 2TB drives. The system came right up and I loaded up their software. My windows 7 software crashed due to their security software and was nasty trying to unravel the mess. I was able to get the system back up and running. Personal cloud has never worked and when I called tech support they sent me some lame documents from the web. I got "hey it works for me" attitude and no solution at all.
Summary: We want a storage device that would allow for raid 5 and this device did, speed was not that important just storage. We have had it less then a year and it has failed and lost our data 3 times. It is a joke, you can trust it with anything important. Don't buy it you will be sorry.
Summary: Comments about Iomega StorCenter px6-300d Network Storage Server: I was in the market to purchase a NAS and after a lot of research was planning on purchasing the Synology DS1511+, but at the last minute received an e-mail with the Iomega StorCenter px6-300d on sale marked down considerably from the [$] Retail Price Tag. When I did some investigating, several reviews commented on the performance being less than optimal, but mentioned the feature set was quite extensive.
