Review: Iomega PX2-300d 4TB Network Attached Storage

02/25, 6:36pm

Iomega PX2-300d NAS brings horsepower to network storage

Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices are similar in one respect to the iPod on release -- until one used it, the utility wasn't immediately apparent. Then, upon using it, it becomes nearly vital to day-to-day operations. The Iomega PX2-300d is the Cadillac of NAS boxes. Driven by a dual-core Atom processor, the device is brutally fast for what it is, and runs a host of services -- including the ability to serve as the core of a security system, bit torrent, iTunes, iSCSI initiation, file sharing with user management, and automated off-site backup. In the NAS ecosystem, where does it fit? Electronista got a hold of a 4TB unit, and ran it through its paces.
