This review is from: Lenovo 70A69003NA Diskless System Iomega ix2 Network Storage 2-bay
Pros: Purchased for $60.00 shipped from a “website named for a striped animal that growls”. Added 2 3TB Seagate barracudas (external usb 3.0 – removed the disks, they were on sale for 99.00 each). Upgraded firmware and then started the copy process.
Note at first the copying seemed slow, that was probably due to the RAID 1 (mirror) initialization process. Once the array was built the NAS had acceptable performance on write and great performance on reads. The IX2 shows up as a shared folder on all my windows devices.
I did not use the included Twonky, as I have PLEX running on my WHS 2011 box. I did map all my files to the NAS and removed all the drives from my WHS 2011 (except the boot drive). Also, since this mirrored, I disconnected the WHS backup. The server runs great and as a bonus any PC can directly access the NAS box. Total investment for 6TB raid 1 (3 TB useable) $260.00 and about 2 hours of time.
Overall this is a GREAT NAS for home / small office. With basic windows networking skills you can set this up with your home folders or the built in cloud software.
Cons: can't cook or clean
Other Thoughts: If you upgrade the firmware - BE SURE TO RUN THE DOWNLOADED FILE WHICH WILL CREATE THE USB DRIVE (NEED TO BE > THE 1 GIG), DO NOT COPY THE FILES TO THE USB DRIVE – that mistake probably cost me 45 mins to an hour.READ FULL REVIEW
