It's been a long time since we reviewed
Iomega's original StorCenter ix2 NAS, and the company have finally got around to updating the dual-drive consumer/small-office backup and media-sharing system. The Iomega StorCenter ix2-200
keeps the compact footprint of its predecessor but boosts capacity - 1TB, 2TB and 4TB models are on offer - upgrade potential and green credentials.
Unlike the ix2, the ix2-200 has twin user-accessible drive bays, and they're filled with low-power drives that are automatically spun-down when not in use. The StorCenter also has DLNA media streaming, RAID 1 drive spanning for improved data security, three USB ports for plugging in external drives or webcams, and optional Bluetooth for wirelessly transferring files from mobile devices.
