4 out of 5 eggsSteep Learning Curve

Pros: Thought I was a pretty good techie till I faced this one down. Mind you they could have made this a little easier, spelled less bells & whistles, but it is worth it if you need a place to stick alot of stuff available to two or more machines. I have a mixed environment dictating the need for compatibility. Short & sweet - the fastest way to load your stuff on this thing is to put it on a flash drive or, I already had, a portable usb drive with all my media on it. Plug it into one of the two usb ports and press the fast transfer button on the front. I left it on over night and 377 gigs copied by the time I got up. Basically it is the only way to do it faster than 90k/s by copy paste. Tech support is there if you need and read the book. It really works like it should if you set it up the way it should be. It does take a while to get familiar with and all is good in the end. I just hope it lasts long enough to get my effort out of it.

Cons: Steep learning curve.

1 out of 5 eggsUnbelievably slow.

Pros: - Very easy to hook up
- Relatively cheap for the space
- Looks cool, I guess.

Cons: - Transferring files is so incredibly slow it's borderline useless. Despite trying several network configurations and restarts (and I can move files between my computers which are on wireless extremely quickly, and even over Dropbox), the device takes around two to three hours to move a 1 gb movie file. I bought this as a drive to back up my raw content for video creation, and it is absolutely useless in that regard.
- No USB connectivity whatsoever (minus out) meaning you can't just use it like a regular USB external
- Requires its own power and is very bulky.
- Can't even stream SD movies off it (aka read my files) without it slowing up

Other Thoughts: This is the worst tech product I have ever purchased, hands down. I tried to reach their support and they never offered anything useful (they had me redo stuff I'd already did, then would disconnect the chat when it didn't work). I unfortunately don't have the financial means to buy another HDD, so I'm stuck with this useless one and have no idea what to do. Bottom line: avoid, and avoid all iomega products if this is how they treat their customers.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsSaved The Day!

Pros: Easy installtion, wireless, flexible, piece of mind with instantaneous backup feature. Drive can be accessed as a network device/file server.

Cons: No "silent" mode on start up of PC. Would be nice if it could just run in the background

Other Thoughts: I found this drive at a famous "brick and mortar" store for a great sale price. I bought it to replace an old backup drive that had quit working.

Intallation was quick and easy, and interfaced seamlessly into my home wireless network.

After a year in use, the hard drive on my laptop failed. Nothing would bring it back to life. After rebuilding and reinstalling programs on the new drive, I found that the "instant backup" had done it's job, and all folder that were being backed up contained all my files!

What could have been quite a loss turned into a simple process of copying files back over from the iomga to the new hard drive and continuing on my way!

I can't say enough of how pleased I am with this purchase and highly reccomend it to anyone looking for a relatively inexpensive way to protect their files.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it! Works like a charm!

Pros: Available from anywhere on my home network! Lots of capacity. Doesn't need a connection to my computer. Gigabit capable (though I am using on a 100 Mbps net for now). Easy to set up and use via DHCP and addressing with Explorer. (see Other thoughts if you wish)

Cons: I didn't like the included software, but I tend to not like anybody's hardware interface software (printers, NICs, etc.). So not really a negative -- just not something I want.

Other Thoughts: I am using this on my home net and I assigned a static IP for it so I'd know "where it lived." To use it from my computer, I opened Windows Explorer and typed the address 192.168.40.5 (the address I assigned it) and once it became visible to Explorer, I highlighted it and clicked on Tools, Map Network Drive. I created a couple folders and I assigned a letter to each (T: and U:). I selected that the drive should be mapped at startup.

Other users don't see the drive because they don't know how to find it -- that suits me.

My first use was to back up an entire hard drive from a computer with a mobo problem. Later I set up a new computer and just for the heck of it I mapped to the drive and watched a couple videos on the new computer.

I need to get a Gigabit router so I can take advantage of the high-speed interface. I may also buy another one of these. After all, there are still V: and W:

4 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm

Pros: Lot's of features
Easy setup
Relatively inexpensive.

Cons: Not blazing fast.

Other Thoughts: In my opinion, this purchase was well worth it. I haven't used the proprietary software, all I did was power the thing up and connect it to my network. Saw it grab a DHCP address on my network, browsed to the IP and all the settings were at my fingertips. This took less than 5 minutes to configure. CIFS and NFS work great, with Win 7 laptop, ubuntu linux and Xbox360. All devices see shares with no issues, and movies/music stream fine. Speed is not blazing fast, my transfer rate when copying data was 1MB/s - but that may be a limitation on my wireless network itself. System also takes a while to reboot (10 minutes), which is required for certain configuration changes and firmware upgrade. Not a big deal. Also did not recognize my old printer - Canon L90 - wish it did or gave me the ability to somehow install drivers for this printer. Have not tested personal cloud or remote access yet.

1 out of 5 eggsFacing all kinds of problems

Pros: Ability to wirelessly access all my media from multiple devices (TV, PS3, Bluray Player, Laptops etc.)

Cons: I have had this drive for over a year now. Every few days, it will stop showing on the network. On checking, I always find drive to be running fine (sometimes i find the fan is off) but still doesn't show on the network. If i power off the drive & turn on again after few mins, it starts to work normally (starts to show on the network). I have had this problem from very begining but never had time to contact Iomeaga & now it is out of warranty (I think).

I expected it to be much more reliable. Over time, I have put all my photos, videos etc on it & need 100% reliability. I have checked online but couldn't find any solution. I think it is a manufacturing defect.

I had over 200GB data on the drive. Few days ago, I found that all the data is gone. Seems like drive formatted itself !!!

I would advise against buying this hard drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Neel,

This is not a manufacturers defect. Please contact our customer service department and we will work with you to find a solution. You can find a contact number here: https://iomega-na-en.custhelp.com/app/home Thank you.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Does what it says it will do. You really want to plug it into a gig ethernet port to get the most speed from it. Mine is quiet and very reliable.

Cons: Can be a little tough to install/setup.

Other Thoughts: I really like the quick protect software. I have four PC's and 2 laptops between the kids and the wife. This took care of all my backup needs.Once you set it up, you mostly can just forget it till you need to restore your data.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: N/A

Cons: Product arrived DOA - spent 45 minutes on support call with IOmega support - very responsive agent and shipped they took ownership to ship a new unit, however over a week later I am still waiting on the replacement.

Other Thoughts: Disappointing that a brand new, out of the box component wouldnt even power up. Even more disappointing that a week after my order I am still have 2 days of wait for my purchase to arrive in working order - should have just paid the difference and ordered from alternate site where I know I would be assured A+ service.

Manufacturer Response:

Anonymous,

Your unit should have arrived by now. Let us know if you have any further issues. Thank you for your support of Iomega.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money

Pros: Worked great for months. Quite and great for streaming movies.

Cons: After a year, the hard drive went out on me and couldn't find my receipt. Iomega refused to warranty or even help me with my issue even though it came with a 3 year warranty and the date made on the box was within warranty. Now I just have an expensive paper weight.

Manufacturer Response:

Joseph,

In order to maintain your warranty you have to register your product. If you contact our support department (https://iomega-na-en.custhelp.com/) we will try to work with you to find a solution.

2 out of 5 eggsDecent Speeds, Poor Software

Pros: Ethernet connectivity, easy setup, good speeds over my wireless network. I can play HD media wirelessly, good write and read speeds.

Cons: Proprietary software required to use, and will crash my file browser no matter what OS I'm using. Crashed OSX Finder endlessly, and Windows Explorer often when trying to add or delete files.

The drive itself never spins down and is fairly loud. Apparently it is too much to ask for a sleep/spin down feature for a device that has it's own controller and custom software to run. Also includes blinking led that never goes off.

And the unit's power/reset button...I'm not even sure what it does. And yes I'm using the latest firmware. Save yourself the headaches and upgrade to a router with a USB interface, and I'll bet there will be USB 3.0 ones out soon.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, Anonymous -
I'm sorry to hear that you experienced issues with the client software. Iomega Storage Manager isn't required to use the unit - it just helps with discovering the unit and mapping shares for use on your PC or Mac. You can manage the device directly from the unit's IP address. The disk will spin down if it is inactive. The blinking LED likely indicates that the unit hasn't been able to get an address from DHCP - that could also explain why the disk is constantly active.
Give Tech Support a shout - they can help you resolve the problem.
