Lenovo 70A69003NA Diskless System Iomega ix2 Network Storage 2-bay
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Seriously flawed design 12/03/2013

This review is from: Lenovo 70A69003NA Diskless System Iomega ix2 Network Storage 2-bay

Pros: So, setup was easy and sharing out to windows was a breeze. Everything worked great (although not as fast as I would have liked) for around 11 months.

Cons: On the 11th of ownership I suffered several brownouts in succession. The power fluctuations didn't destroy the hardware but it lost the ability to read my data on the drives. After trying to get the drive mounted under linux and then contacting support (very rude at first) I eventually came to terms that data recovery would not be practical. The drive is working and linux can see the partions in LVM but I can't see any logical volumes. What good is a device that looses data after a brownout/blackout? I have since attached it to a UPS but the damage is done.

Other Thoughts: If I have to do it over again I would get a QNAP or Synology.
