I wanted a RAID1 NAS storage. RAID standard dictates how hard disks are used. In RAID1 both the hard discs contain the same data. So if one fries the other one will save your day till you replace the broken one with a new disk. I wanted Iomega to act as the backup repository for all my systems which include a macbook (Leopard), ubuntu Linux (9.10) and WindowsXP Pro.
+ For 200+ bucks this offers you RAID1. Which is lot better than over prized Apple Time capsule which has only one hard disk.
+ Works seamlessly with Apple Time machine software
+ Supports FTP Server, UPNP (for media streaming) and SMTP (to send you an emails about diagnostics errors etc)
+ Supports Good Security. Remember once you connect any device to network you should enable user accounts passwords etc.
+ Very Very simple configuration.
+ You can connect external USB storage devices and they are available to all users in your home network. Makes regular usb printers network printers how cool is that ?
+ Very reliable. So far I have transferred 100 Gigs of data over the network and not even once did the network connection drop.
+ Compact and easy to service (in case the hard disk fries).
None so far
For Apple Users
Once you install the supplied software the provided TimeMachine folder on the drive is visible to your time machine software as a backup drive. Configuration just involves opening up your time machine preferences and pointing to the NAS timemachine folder. Done! its that simple.Read more ›
Iomega has been, in the past, not so desireable for mass storage because of the ZipDrive. Ya, many of you bought into the whole MEGA floppy era, but hey, what else did you have? Then NAS came around, but very expensive, this is a solution that is priced right (with Hard drives) and has all the nesseccary tools. The interface is HTML, but unless your network is a joke, it's NOT slow like others have mentioned. I setup my whole system from a wireless connectiion from my laptop after hard wiring the storage unit into my router. Here are a couple of key items to note.
1. Iomega uses ther own hard disks. 5400RPM, but I would of liked 7200RPM. I think 5400RPM was used to reduce heat in the small form factor and overall cost.
2. If you need to copy large amounts of data within or to the storage disk from USB use the Iomega "Copy Jobs", it will save you a LOT of time and won't depend on your computer.
3. Iomega thought that everyone that purchased this unit would be an idiot, so you may have to swap some file around after you copy them or back them up becuase many "Default" locations have been set in there interface. (Like the "QuikTransfer" folder for all your "One Touch" backups)
4. "One Touch" backup for cameras and USB drives works great but you need to setup the "Copy Jobs" accordingly.
5. You do NOT need to load the Iomega software on each computer you have to see the drive.

Prior to purchasing this NAS I had an old Inspiron 6000 with XP as a "Home Server". It served files, Itunes, media, and along with 2GB memory and 2TB external Firewire disk I had speed and backup space. the only thing missing was Time Machine Support. I bought this Iomega to save on power, and because it was "So easy to use and convenient" according to all biased reviews I read.
A) Setup: Yes, it is easy to set up, But, the setup assistant doesn't work on a wireless network. your machine has to be wired to the router in order to recognize the storecenter. Also this web interface is awful, sometimes you get a timeout or page not found (verified in forums with other users). Also to update the firmware you have to manually download it form Iomega site because the function that is supposed to check for and update always says "The device software is up to date" even thou there was a mandatory update on the site. Also, you can enable and disable most of the functions but there are no options in almost any of the functions so you have to use them "as they are configured by Iomega".
B) Backup: it does a fair job with the backups, but there is no option to limit the amount of space used by Time Machine. You can set a quota to every folder on the device but not to the time machine folder.Read more ›
