Why is this not smoking? Oh, I guess cos its bad for you. Hot deal though!

Could this be connected to the internet and accessed from anywhere?

Is there a way that your mobile phone, with internet access, could see, use and play the content on the hard drives?

• 1 x RJ45 10/100/1000Mbps (GbE) Ethernet port. LAN standards: IEEE 802.3, IEEE 802.3u <<<

Op space out the bullets makes it harder to read when its scrunched up^

Good price, but I've never heard of this Dutch company, does anyone have any experience of them

Iomega are a long standing brand. Their products were top quality a few years ago and were one of the original companies to develop high capacity storage systems for the domestic / small business market. I don't know what they are like now but I would take a closer look if you are in the market for this type of equipment.

I've used ibood before - they are reliable but they ship from holland (I think it was) so expect the possibility of an EU plug with a UK adaptor - that's what I got with my Popcorn hour.
Also delivery was very long, at least a couple of weeks, but they do at least tell you on this one that shipping estimated to be at least 12th Sep - I wouldn't expect it any sooner than 3rd week Sep.
Looks a good deal if you need a big HDD as well, but I just went for one of the N40L deals which appears to be still available (despite being expired)

Seems like a good deal, but I found this user comment from a review on TechRadar's site:

'I have had one of these for 18 months and strongly recommend that you do NOT buy this or similar products. Its is completely unreliable and hangs. Iomega are useless and use premium rate lines for phone support. When you do find their support email on their support website it took them 4 months to response to me and had given up checking. There are a lot of other people on the Iomega support forum that are just as p**sed off with this piece of junk. Don't waste your money on it'.

Ok - it seems to be for the previous model, but would you want to risk it?

It is a good price but check out the reviews on Amazon HERE

It is also a 2year old product and checking out some of the expert reviews (albeit at a higher price) it only seems to get average ratings. Iomega seems to have a very poor Customer/Technical support department?

Asper previous comments shipped from Netherlands ,if faulty you have to rtn to IBOOD who have no service department .Therein my issue with them after 11 months still not replaced or rtnd and no way of pressuring apart from this site .Sorry

This Got Hot in 3 minutes WOW

Stunning reviews for the device and the retailer; I'm amazed this isn't a good deal hotter

Voting Neutral. I've had Iomega products before, and when they were good they were very very good, but when they went wrong (and they did - as soon as the warranty expired), don't bother contacting Iomega support. Take it back to the store and use the "Sale of Goods Act", get your money back and buy another make.

Exactly why this wasn't a good deal as even if you had ignored the product reviews and taken a risk you were buying outside the UK.

Deal expired now.

avoid at all costs unless if you just want the hard drives off of it. In my experience Iomega (may just be the ix2 range) has the highest failure rate of all.

Is there something similar to this but with wireless/WiFi? Preferably compatible with OSX's Time Machine backup system. I've got a couple Macbooks and I'd like to set up a wireless backup system hidden away in a closet/cupboard instead of using external USB drives sitting next to the laptops. I was burgled a couple years ago and the idea of someone grabbing my laptop AND the backup drive sitting next to it freaks me out.

I bought a second hand Airport Extreme off ebay for £40, a 1TB external hard drive off amazon for £62 and a £14 powered USB hub from Currys. Put it all together (and added an extra 500gb drive i had lying around) and i now have a reliable wireless backup and storage solution, for a relatively cheap £116. Use the 500gb for time capsule backups and the 1tb for media.
