For the price you can't expect miracles but the design of the system has a flaw in it. The OS for the box resides on one of the disks, so if it fails then you are stuck. Back to IOMEGA to have it restored. I think for a system like this to be truly useful it needs to be as simple as possible to recover from a disc failure.

Mine runs a little hot and noisy, and isn't especially fast. On the other hand boxes that are quick, quiet, do better redundancy, and are a little more flexible - cost considerably more.

I have decided to remove the mirroring (one disk is a copy of the other in case of failure of 1 disk) and to use all 2GB. I will schedule backups to an external USB drive.

Pluses. Relatively cheap, easy to set up, got the shares up on my Mac and PC with no problem, used the print server successfully, and used the media server to my PS3.

Maybe I got lucky with the two that I own, but I bought the first one a year ago to put into my VMware lab environment because (a) this was the only reasonably priced NAS that has iSCSI support and (b) EMC own Iomega (and also own VMware) so it's on the HCL.

Some caveats: the unit is kept in my garage, so the temperatures are colder than your average home or office. I have never used any of the media features so I cannot comment on those.

The device is connected via a dedicated gigabit switch to three ML110 G5 servers on dedicated iSCSI 1Gb NICs.

Booting a single virtual machine is marginally slower than a physcial device with a SATA disk and of similar specification to the virtual machine.

Booting multiple virtual machines all but cripples the NAS - but this is, at the heart, a small desktop device, so I wasn't really expecting any other.

I have never seen the device drop off the network like so many others here, and although it's my "lab" environment, it runs my website and Exchange server so is on 24/7.

Some of the things I can comment on that I was, out of necessity, careful with:

All of the networking equipment I use is branded - from the NICs to the switches - the NICs for example are all HP branded using either Intel or Broadcom chipsets and are all on the VMware HCL;

The switch I use for the iSCSI has jumbo frames enabled - this will improve performance for copying files etc (which, by the way, is not noticably slow when I copy from either a Windows or Mac to a vrtual machine);

The firmware for the NAS has been kept up to date, as has the firmware of the network equipment - including the NICs - and servers.

Had this a while now and it has behaved perfectly! :) Connected it to a gigabit switch and now we all enjoy music, movies and files from one location on the laptops desk tops and PS3 on our home network. I like the feature to connect a printer to it so I no longer have to switch on my desktop when my Daughter wants to print her homework. Not had any problems streaming SD movies or music? I do have a good knowledge of IT but setup was simple, if you can set up a router for your ADSL this should be no problem. We are using XP, Vista and Windows 7 pcs in the house and they all connected fine. The 2TB version only gives you 1TB of storage. It has lots of featurs that I have not used such as online access which is free for 12 months or the one click backup facility. As with any product like this I won't know how good it really is until one of the drives fail but hopefully my data will be safe! :)

I bought the StorCenter with high hopes, given the specs.

However, my experience can be summarized as a disaster:

1) Retrospect, the backup software which comes along with the product, is highly unreliable. It worked only every now and then from the beginning. After 46 backup allegedly successful 'restore points' but frequent warnings I tried to restore some of my data only to find that this lead to dubious error messages and did not work.

2) I then reverted to a simpler approach: simple file back up using the free FBackup, mirror copy. It turns out that the issue with Retrospect was actually that the StorCenter drives 'disappeared' during the night. Retrospect did not produce any comprehensible warnings, but FBackup did. Hence I set up a script to monitor the NAS device over night, and, yes, after around 5 hours the StorCenter server stopped responding to file system requests or to open its management website. It did still respond to ping, ie the machine itself was up, connected and powered. Everything else was dead, though, with the HDs working hard on something.

3) Assuming it could be hardware fault (several reports on the net mention that the HDs are not very reliable) I removed one HD to see whether this would improve performance. It didn't.

I contacted iOmega a few times, with dysmal results. They kept asking the same questions (is it connectected etc) but never appreciated the fact that the device started up well, only to die after a few hours. It is also interesting to note that their website does not mention any of the problems reported elsewhere, which points to a very selective approach to customer service. You won't even find a 'troubleshooting' section.

In summary a total desaster, waste of time and money.
No iOmega ever again.

PS i then bought a synology DS212, put the two iomega HDs in - worked from day one, no issues ever.
