All three configurations use an array of four discs. The device itself is very solidly built and certainly imbues a sense of confidence that any data stored on it will be nice and safe. Aside from a quick spin-up of its fans when started, the ixd is near silent in operation, the only audible noise coming from its hard drives and only then when I was sitting right next to it.
Around the rear there are a further two USB ports, dual gigabit Ethernet ports a reset button use this unintentionally at your peril and a Kensington lock attachment so you can ensure nobody runs off with your precious data.
Three USB ports in total might seem like overkill but a number of devices can be connected, including an optional Bluetooth dongle, printers or security cameras.
The latter can then be set-up to save their output to the StorCentre, eliminating the need for a computer which is pretty useful. Iomega recommends using Axis cameras, but most should work. The provision of a three year warranty is noteworthy, too. Where appropriate there are helpful info-graphics for example, the possible drive configurations you can use and I never once found myself aimlessly hunting around trying to find an option because it was in an obscure sub-menu.
Heck, it even works fine on an iPhone. The entry page either lets you view all the public folders on the device or enter the administration area. Additional users can be added and assigned access to various folders on the drive, which are hidden to those without permission to view them, and quotas can be set on a per-folder basis.
Transfer speeds were little different from what you might expect averaging out to The ixd has a couple of consumer-centric features, even though its target audience is business users. The foremost of these is a built-in uPnP server which will stream files to any compatible media playback device or software. As well as transferring to and from USB devices you can have the NAS pull data to its own storage from another network location or even transfer from one to another.
