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

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.

    Lockable door

    "A door, unfortunately bereft of any lock..." Actually, the lock is there. You can see the key for it on the right side of the box.

    It's not a keyed lock, unfortunately. It's just a latch.

    Mmmmm . . . .

    Look in your accessory box again. Mine came with two keys, and it definitely locks.
