The Iomega StorCenter px6-300d Network Storage is a high performance business class desktop device, ideal for small-to medium sized businesses and distributed enterprise locations like branch and remote offices, for content sharing and data protection. Powered by EMC storage technology, the StorCenter px6-300d device is easy to setup and manage, and affordable to own.
The StorCenter px6-300d provides cross-platform file sharing and simultaneous iSCSI block access. High performance I/O is achieved through dual GbE connections with port bonding and link aggregation capabilities. The Iomega Personal Cloud technology offers unparalleled simplicity and versatility for data protection and access. Business users will appreciate the robust data protection features such as multiple RAID levels with hot swap drives, UPS support, print serving, user quotas, device-to-device data replication and certification for most virtualization environments. The easy-to-use interface provides no-hassle management. Active Directory support and remote access round out the comprehensive business features. The StorCenter px6-300d also embeds the Axis Video Hosting System solution and can support up to 10 Axis IP security cameras for video surveillance applications. RSA BSAFE encryption for protected installs and upgrades along with support for PC, Mac and Linux clients.
Pros: Fast and reliable NAS. Great integration with Active Directory. Options for teaming NICs for load balancing and throughput are great features. Installed @ client site and took backup time from 30 days to 12 hours.

Software Raid - Not Perfect - Not bad either
Pros: Good hardware fit and finish. External Power supply easily replaced in the future. Nice LCD, informative. Super quiet fans - They run as slow as they can and it is quiet.
Cons: 1) LACP is problematic. Most reboots require pulling link on the ethernet cable to bring the LACP bundle up and make the device reachable. 2) Array rebuild process has hung on multiple tests. Had to reboot to continue the rebuild. 3) Software RAID writes 3rd party partitions to your drives. There is a system Raid0 mirror across all drives on partition0, then a partition1 on all drives and finally your space begins at parition3. I guess this is just a consequence of software raid and not really iomega. 4)I'm using Seagate 1TB drives on the HCL with 4k sector size. The iomega sees the drives as 4k drives but chooses to write 512logical/physical sectors to each device. I have a service request opened with iomega to address, but this is disappointing.
Other Thoughts: This is a good SAN device. I don't use it for the frivolous features like print serving and facebook uploading. I needed a SOHO disk array I could use iSCSI to connect to and run multiple VMWare clients from. For this purpose it has direct block level iscsi access which is more than many other NAS devices in this pricerange. Iomega is a good brand name, they've been around for a while, so hopefully they will update support for 4k sectors (huge CON there with these big drives today). Also not really a con, but the SATA is the 3Gbps version, not SATA2. This is most likely a non-issue, since the software raid would have a hard time pushing 3Gbps anyway.

Slow, but Great Features... if you can get it to work.
Pros: Nice GUI, Iomega Personal Cloud, Attractive Form Factor, Well Designed Hot-swap bays, Tech Support Speaks English
Cons: Less than brilliant tech support, slow boot time, slow Read/Write Access, limited number of USB ports, Print Server has issues, Only VERY SPECIFIC Hard Drives Work (only 2x 7,200 RPM drives on a VERY short list), Empty SODIMM does not support an additional PC3-10600 RAM chip
Other Thoughts: DO NOT PURCHASE THIS DEVICE UNLESS YOU INTEND ON USING ALL IDENTICAL HDD THAT ARE LISTED ON IOMEGA'S WEBSITE AS COMPATIBLE!!! Other HDD's may register, but will be unusable!

Pros: 1. Good performance
Cons: 1. I had one lockup which I had to power cycle to clear.
Other Thoughts: I use this for my home VMware lab, media streaming to my TV, file storage, and various other things. It works well and has good performance. I imagine it would be great for most home labs or SMBs needs and the ability to use SSDs is nice.
