Pros No pros could be found.
Cons Randomly stops transferring data through all interfaces, and under 2 operating systems.
Summary Followed setup instructions, drive fails to complete all transfers. Even when configured as a plain jane vanilla local NAS drive (IOmega tech support suggested I disable everything, even the cloud server segments), this drive just plain does not work when hardwired into my Netgear n300 WNR2000. My router firmware is up-to-date, the NAS drive is up-to-date, IOmega tech support elected to send the RMA advanced exchange drive based on their cooperation with configuring my setup, and the replacement drive fails exactly the same way.
Rather classy bookend, though pricey.
Would have rated this zero stars but website disallows less than 0.5 stars.
Pros Easy to access and share over the net, Time machine support, DLNA certified, personal cloud technology
Cons No Demerits
Summary Accessing and sharing files is so simple on Home media network hard drive. Not just within the network but also on the web. As the name suggests it is used as a home server but this does not stop it from churning out some of the best networking features. I have connected the device to my home network. While on travel I am able to access the files on the NAS with the help of Personal Cloud technology.
Since I have Mac machines, I was happy to note that the NAS supported Time Machine backup. The home media hard drive is DLNA certified and I was able to stream content to my Sony Playstation 3 comfortably. On the whole the Home media hard drive is a solid NAS that does not compromise of any networking and storage features.
Pros Usable as a limited ftp server
Cons Does not work as advertised, not a reliable NAS.
Summary As NAS it does not work as expected. When browsing from W7 it almost always hangs after a while, leaving your Windows browser dead forever trying to reconnect. You need to reset the drive and often your session to regain access, although it shows up and can be managed through its own web server. If you are looking for a domestic NAS and plan to use it as a plain file server, just look for another product.
Pros None. I'd leave it at that but I'm required to post at least 10 characters.
Cons Support: none. Lion compatibility: head scratching continues (read none). Interface crude and confusing.
Summary Wish i'd done a bit more research before making the purchase. I regret it.
