2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I like the pysical design and material. It has good software features when it works. Linux based and allows SSH access to CLI.

Cons: Hard drives run continuosly even when I am not accessing it. Runs very hot, and the fan doesn't seem to help if it runs at all. (Currently 56 C and fan at 0 RPM) Sometimes does not respond when trying to access data. I've changed the hard drives and still have the same issues.

Other Thoughts: I bought one of these refurbished from iomega and it lasted about a year. Then one day the web interface showed that one of my drives was new and I couldn't access any data stored on it. I have since purchased new hard drives and installed and configured them. It worked great until I put about 500 GB of data on it, now it slow to respond if at all, and still runs continuosly. The hard drives are always in there beating away. I have no idea what it is doing and the web interface does not show any indication. Thumbnails process seems to eat up 10 - 30 % of the CPU at any given moment. I'm looking for an alternative to iomega and Seagate.

Pros: I own 4 of these 4tb drives. plan on getting more.
Great solid construction. Fast data transfers. Good local USA company.

Cons: The hard drivea shorts out after about 3 years. would be nice if i could replace the drives with just any drive.

Manufacturer Response:


The hard drive should not be shorting out after 3 years. This is not something we have heard about routinely. Please contact our support department and lets see if we can find a solution for you. The contact information can be found on our web site here:

1 out of 5 eggsActive Directory Users and Groups

Pros: cheap!

Cons: Could not get device to work with my 2008R2 Server with Active Directory. Device connected to domain fine with the Admin account, but when trying to give other users access and permissions the device cannot see other users, or groups, kinda mad about this because it says it works with AD.

Other Thoughts: ok, if you are in a workgroup environment maybe.

Manufacturer Response:


Please contact our support department. There should be no issue assigning out user rights or access. You can find a number here:

3 out of 5 eggsseemingly good product, watch your back

Pros: works as advertised. has a bunch of features, nice control panel, fairly easy setup.

Cons: it gave fan errors after only a week (through the nice email feature). I should have returned it but, I upgraded the firmware as per t/s and waited until it happened again...another 25 days. Iomega replaced it asap (I am a reseller and the unit is a major backup) for 50$. I should have returned it the first time it errored out.

Other Thoughts: If I buy an HP desktop and the hard drive goes bad under warranty, I get a drive shipped to me overnight with a return tag enclosed (free). I just got the same service from Iomega for fifty bucks.... I talked to two different techs that didn't know when the fans were supposed to turn on. That is NOT good support.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, mikey did it -
First, thank you for providing your feedback. We really do appreciate it. The fan errors you report were, in all likelihood, unrelated. Tech Support requested that you update the device firmware because we had a minor reporting bug - the fan was working correctly, but the OS reported an incorrect error state. That issue was resolved in the update.
It sounds like the fan really did fail in the second time - fans are actually pretty reliable and we rarely see issues.
I am disappointed to hear that our tech support team didn't know or communicate to you that ix2-200 fan does not spin up until the internal temperature of the device reaches 59 C. We've found that this setting provides the best balance of protecting the internal drive and reducing noise. I will follow up with the agents and be sure that mistake doesn't occur again.
Thank you again for your feedback!

2 out of 5 eggsTime Machine does NOT work

Pros: The network drive concept is good, and, with the exception of Time Machine backups, it works well. It has many features that may be of interest (cloud server, talks to Facebook, Media server, etc.) -- I could care less about them but for others they may be of interest.

Cons: Time Machine does NOT work. The NAS is a Linux box, so the drive is formatted as such. Apple does not recognize any disk format other than Apple's. So Iomega creates a virtual drive on top of the Linux drive, that is an image of an Apple formatted drive. Time Machine writes to that. Each time, Time Machine worked flawlessly for a few days to no more than two weeks, until it hits a verification error. To protect me, Apple locks the backup making all files completely unusable, and insists that I delete the entire backup and start all over again. Once I do, go back to line one of my Cons. I have been working hard with Iomega for months to find a fix, have started and failed about one backup a week per machine (I have two iMacs, with a solid 1 Gbps network, high end cabling and switching). As this is the ONLY reason that I bought this drive, I give it a low rating.

Other Thoughts: If Iomega fixes this problem, would rate this derive four stars. The missing star would be due to regular time-outs and access delays. I believe, but am not sure, that the delay is due to a too-slow controller (computer) on board the ix-200.

Iomega was not willing to tell what their expected transfer rate is to this device. But my testing, and reading in between Iomega comments, tell me that the highest expected transfer rate is about 200 Mbps, maybe as high as 220 Mbps. It is NOT network limited, it is device limited. So, if you have typical home networking and use, this drive is plenty fast enough; if you need high volume or high speed access, you will need to spend a lot more money.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, Alaz -
In general, Time Machine works fine with the ix2-200 Cloud Edition device. Since Apple designed Time Machine for direct attached storage, we create a sparse bundle on the network storage products. This is standard practice for NAS, and it should work fine with the latest version of firmware. If not, please do keep working with Tech Support so we can isolate the root cause of the problem you are seeing.

3 out of 5 eggsToo slow for large ntbackups

Pros: Lots of features for a low cost.

Cons: iSCSI is slow. We had an OpenNAS built out of a Dell Precision 370 set up for iSCSI that was connected to a server running a scheduled ntbackup of about ~70GB. It worked great, but was bulky. We purhased the ix2-200 to replace it, also using iSCSI. Connected identically to the server as the OpenNAS device was, the backup would get 'delayed write failures' at every backup, and we had to revert to the OpenNAS to get good backups.

Other Thoughts: I would prefer the LDAP integration be via pass-through rather that by sychronizing accounts, but it's a small nitpick and seems to work fine once set up, so I don't feel justified in listing it as a 'con'. Device seems like it would work great as a NAS if performance is not an issue.

5 out of 5 eggsI love NAS its official!

Pros: Very easy to setup, very quiet, only takes a couple of seconds to wake up from sleep, and it runs fairly cool. I was a little concerned over how muchheat a couple odrives would kick out, but its surprising little. Its also very small and compact unlike the original Iomega NAS drive i had a few years ago, in fact its a massive improvement!

Cons: Minor niggle - the web access isnt like accessing a server drive over a vpn etc, its web based and a little slow, not quite what i was expecting, but still good enough for the few times i'll need it.

1 out of 5 eggsUnbelievable again

Pros: Box is only slightly dented.

Cons: When reviewing products for this project I was comfortable with an IOmega product as I have used them before. However I was not happy with the way the product was shipped. Every ordered I have gotten from Newegg has been well packaged and shipped, but this item, which is basically two hard drives in a plastic case, was shipped in its shelf packaging without any protection. It does not matter if it works or not, if it ever fails before it's MTBF I will suspect the poor shipping! Now I am faced with meeting a project deadline with a suspect product!

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, BigD56 -
Sorry to hear that the product didn't arrive in pristine condition. We're working with NewEgg to investigate how this occurred. The good news is that our drives are tested to high standards, and should be fine even with a dented box. Thanks for the heads up!
