User Rating: Disappointing
Ease of Installation:
Ease of Use:
Pros:Cheap (not inexpensive), Feature rich (in the marketing literature)
Cons:Will not last past the warrenty and you will lose your data.
The Bottom Line: Be Warned, Stay Away you will lose data on this drive.
Ordered and received 14 months ago and install on my home network on a dedicated and isolated circuit. Was warned about the Remote Retreive not working so I didn't expect much and was not dissappointed when it didn't. The same goes with the backup software. However, the issue there is more serious in the you can screw up the information so that you never get it back. I had further been warned about the slow data transfer rate and it is true. On files of even a medium size the transfer is about 50% of expected rate. The occurance that causes me to call this junk is that the drive became unaccessable within a week of the warrenty expiration. Lights but no spinning platters even though it was on 24/7. After several failed attempts I un-plugged it that didn't help. Then I left it unpluged for several days, lights no spin. Left it plugged back in and came back a few days later, no spin, no lights, no drive and no data. IOMega which once enjoyed a stellar reputation is now panned as sub-standard because it is. Pay attention to the critics or your data will vanish also. These are NOT RELIABLE drives.
