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. When I did some investigating, several reviews commented on the performance being less than optimal, but mentioned the feature set was quite extensive. After reviewing the Iomega website and learning about their "Personal Cloud" and some other cool features not included on the Synology DS1511+ (such as a USB 3.0 connection and 2GB of RAM), I made the decision to go with this Iomega px6-300d, excited at the possibilities. Upon the devices arrival, I unpacked it to find a one page (in English) manual/Installation Guide. Not bothered terribly by this - being the nerd I am - I delved into installing Hard Drives, upgrading the 2nd (unused) SODIMM RAM slot with another PC3-10600 2GB chip, and plugging it all in after installing the Iomega Storage Manager downloaded from Iomega.com. The device took about 5 minutes to boot up, but once it was rolling I was very delighted with how easy it was to use their web-based interface. After configuring all the device properties, I noticed that the additional 2GB RAM chip I had installed did not recognize; a little disappointing, but not a big deal.Read more ›

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. Not willing to give up, I purchased a Cisco switch (SLM2008T) capable of Link Aggregation (LAG) and proceeded to configure the switch and StorCenter for LAG. After the StorCenter reset, it would no longer pick up an IP address from the DHCP server on the network. Thinking I might have a bad network cable, I unplugged one of the cables and, immediately, the StorCenter picked up an IP address. I decided to back out the advanced configuration settings and start over, but suddenly, both NICs on the StorCenter now had the same MAC address, even though they were no longer bonded.

I logged a support ticket online and received a response 3 days later recommending a Factory Reset. After taking a data backup (the StorCenter still worked using a single NIC at this point), I performed the Factory Reset, only to discover that the device then failed to pick up an IP address under any circumstance. At this point, I phoned Iomega Support, but the analyst was stumped and had no suggestions. The incident was then escalated to a senior analyst, but I received no updates for 4 days. Finally, I was contacted to arrange a replacement device to be shipped. I received the tracking number 5 days later, but the package still hasn't been shipped.

Please take this review with some reservations on the results as I just got my NAS yesterday and didn't get a chance to play much with it. I will update this review down the road after a while.

I was able to snatch a px4-300d for $199 shipped on another site (B&H), couldn't pass the offer.

I'm using non certified hard drives just fine on it. I have 4*640GB WD Black from 3 years ago and they are still under warranty and zero bad sectors, yeah!
Nonetheless, to be fair, I got my share of doubts with this unit...

First, I followed another reviewer advise and put only one drive in it then booted the NAS and upgraded the firmware to 4.0.2.9960. So far, everything is fine, the update went well and the unit didn't brick.

I then shut down the NAS, put the remaining 3 drives in it and started the PX4-300D again. Got an error and the NAS shut down by itself. After a couple more tries, I unplugged the drives 2, 3, 4 and started the NAS again. This time it came back online. I hot plugged 2,3 and 4 and then got a message that I needed to confirm erase the drives. Fine, why don't you do it automatically then? So, I went to a web browser, connected to the NAS and clicked on yes. The unit started to initialize the drives and I was able to create a pool of 4 drives in RAID5 configuration. I let it run overnight and in the morning it was done. So far, so good.

I wanted to run some benchmark and here is what I got for a 1.7TB file (yes you read well, it is TB!). Write to the NAS was 65.5MB/s with a max of 71.8MB/s, Read from the NAS was 45.3MB/s with a max of 56.5MB/s using Bart's Stuff Test v5.14. ATTo would give you above 100MB R/W... not bad on a Gigabit switch with no Jumbo Frames but write cache enable on the disks!
