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.
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: 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.
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...
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.
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.

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: 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: 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: 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...
