This review is from: Iomega 2 TB Home Media Network Hard Drive Cloud Edition 34766 (Personal Computers)

I bought the 2 TB version. It’s great having our photos and music online so we can use our Sony Bravia and Blu Ray player to browse photos or play music through our sound system. And my Grace Digital internet radio now has access to 4000 tracks on our local network. So, I like it. But…
I hooked it up as instructed to our network and installed the Iomega management software. The manager could not discover the drive as it was supposed to. I logged onto our router to find the IP address and added the device manually. That did it. Minor inconvenience. Then I noticed that the NAS device advertised its capacity as 1.8 TB, not 2 TB. OK, 1.8 TB is still a whale of a lot of storage, but it’s not 2 TB. Now that I’ve got 8000 photos and 4000 audio tracks on the drive, there’s still 1.78 TB of free space. So, not a big deal.
All the folders on the NAS showed up in my Windows Explorer folder list so I figured I could just copy all music and photos directly to the mapped drives. It seemed to work with the music – never mind that it took 15 hours to copy 18 GB – but the photos didn’t copy well at all. Some files were just missing and most of the others were corrupt. I tried recopying them with a direct wired network connection instead of a wireless connection, but still no joy. What finally did work was to enable the FTP server on the NAS and use a FTP client (Filezilla in my case) to upload the photos. Not only did it work with no corrupt files, it took a fraction of the time that the file copy took. It worked so well that I deleted all the music and uploaded it a second time using FTP. Why take chances? It took 2 hours instead of 15. Nowhere could I find in the user’s manual any tips on adding content to the drive. That would have been useful.
I tried enabling the personal cloud function. The NAS is supposed to configure the router automatically but it failed to do so. I was unable to figure out how to configure the port forwarding function on the router to make this work, trying every combination of IP address and port suggested. Now, my router is about 6 years old, which is 2 centuries in router years, so I bought a new router. It was less than $40 and I haven’t tried it yet, but I’ll let you know.
Still all minor inconveniences, right? But what I can’t abide is the darn thing seems to take itself offline from time to time. I can’t get to it with the manager or it’s web page. I have to reboot it to get it to work, and it take seven forevers to reboot.
Summary: great concept, great result when it works, but in a world where nothing is easy anymore, what gets me excited is a product that does what it’s supposed to without sucking up hours of my time. This one’s not quite there yet.

UPDATE:

The new router wasn’t by itself sufficient to enable my personal cloud, but once I enabled the UPnP function on the router, the NAS was able to configure its ports. STILL no joy. I chatted up Iomega’s tech support and they led me through their checklist, most of which I had already tried, but when they’re running out of ROM you don’t push the interrupt button. Everything at my end seemed copacetic so my next call was to my ISP, CenturyLink. I’ve called CenturyLink’s tech support before and they are AWESOME. Dave the Tech Support Guy suggested that I needed to “bridge my modem” and took me through the process step by step. In two minutes it was done and the NAS synched up and made the connection. Yay! But I’m, still trying to figure out the personal cloud and it seems to be hit or miss when I try to connect. It’s always something.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

I got this Omega 1TB Home Media Network Hard Drive Cloud Edition from the Amazon Vine Program for review. Here’s my take on it:

Setup was a snap. I noticed another reviewer had a problem with the online portion of the setup using Internet Explorer; I use Firebox and the setup was smooth and uneventful. I simply attached the (supplied) Ethernet cable to the drive and my D-Link router, then connected the power supply. The hardware was detected immediately and I installed the software from the included CD. Three easy steps completed in minutes.

I admit to not planning to use the this drive for sharing outside my network of two home computers, so some of the capabilities are beyond the scope of this review. However, I set up everything as if I were going to share with a remote device and it functions flawlessly using the Omega Personal Cloud feature. Simply invite guests and they can have access to photos, movies, files and more (includes the ability to read and write to files and folders on the network drive).

Another feature is the powerful backup: you can easily back up all the computers on your network simply by downloading and installing the available client backup software. I currently have a two-year subscription to Carbonite and am considering using the Omega Home Media Network Hard Drive to perform this function instead.

Another plus: One-touch copying via the QuikTransfer button allows you to easily copy files to and from attached USB drives or any network using the rsync or CIFS protocol.

The limits?
Up to 12 devices can be connected simultaneously (internet connection speed dependent)
You can invite up to 250 members
Files can be synched directly between computers as though they were on a local network
Use with almost any desktop, laptop, media storage, or smart mobile device
Drag-&-Drop functionality for easy file transfer
Near zero maintenance following setup
Encryption and password protected
Upload and share files while traveling

Once set up, the device shows as another drive with music, video, data and backup folders. I have set up sub-folders for our two computers so the music, video and data areas do not co-mingle. Each of us can access or share the contents from our personal computers.

Included in the box is the drive, a space saving stand, Ethernet cable, power supply, Quick Start Guide and Solutions Software with User help documentation and a 3-year limited warranty (with registration).

My only complaint is that the documentation is minimal, however, anyone with basic computer skills can manage this installation. Otherwise, this is a great addition to the home network system in terms of storage, accessibility and backup.

This review is from: Iomega 2 TB Home Media Network Hard Drive Cloud Edition 34766 (Personal Computers)

After reading a lot of the reviews I was very hesitant on purchasing the product. But for the price I was willing to give it a try.

The NAS I bought was the Home Media NAS Cloud Edition (2 TB)

I have had the product for about a day now and I am loving it.

The device does not make a lot of noise as other users suggests.

I did have a problem getting it recognized but I think it was impatience more than anything but after shutting it down and restarting it everything showed up just fine.

I immediately updated the firmware as other users suggested. The check for updates did not work and just said it was up to date so I went to the Iomega site and downloaded the firmware manually and uploaded it. With in 10 minutes it was ready to be used again.

A few reviews stated that the drive were not replaceable and that is mostly true. But for the higher level NASes they are. I found a really good comparison chart on Iomega’s web site. The one that I bought does not support drive replacing.

The default shares are easy to delete and you do not need to have the mapped when you use the software. There is a check box when you right click on the storage manager app in the task bar.

The Personal Cloud setup was easy. Had to manually port forward 50500 and 443 (HTTPS) for my Iphone. And YES there is an Iphone app and it works very well.

There are options for automatically uploading a defined folder of pictures to facebook, flickr. Videos can be automatically uploaded to youtube. It can even transfer pictures from your digital camera to the NAS.

If you are worried about a backup for your backup you can sync the drive to Mozy and Amazon S3, or you can have your NAS sync to another NAS with the cloud feature.

The NAS supports a wealth of services and seems to have room for expansion in the future.

This device can be used by novice computer users but you will have to be familiar with networking and computers to get the full potential out of it.

In the end I think this was a very worthwhile purchase and with the 3 year warranty Ill be using it for at least that long.
