Review Iomega has introduced its second-generation StorCenter ix2-200, aimed at the 'prosumer' home user and which offers a wealth of features ranging from a BitTorrent client and remote access to surveillance camera support.

Iomega's StorCenter ix2-200

While most other Network Attached Storage (Nas) manufacturers are trying to conserve materials and so build their boxes as light as possible, Iomega has brought out the heavy armour and constructed a contender for the battlefield. It’s not listed on the feature set, but the ix2-200 seems likely to be bombproof.

Well, perhaps not, but the black aluminium housing would certainly look the part strapped under the wing of an F-22 Raptor and, given its weight - 2.3kg - would probably have a similar effect as the ordnance it would have replaced. In other words, it’s sleek and heavy. But this much storage doesn't need to be portable.

Internally, the ix2-200 houses a 1GHz Marvell 6281 CPU and 256MB of memory to handle server operations and manage the two 3.5in Sata bays which allow for a maximum of 4TB of storage. Iomega has also included three USB 2.0 ports which can communicate with printers, external HDDs and even Bluetooth dongles. Gigabit Ethernet is included too.

Back Side

The ix2-200 is probably not the most feature-rich Nas box out there, but it does include some interesting features on top of the standard set. It includes Iomega’s QuikTransfer button, one of my favourite features. You configure a “Copy Job” to be run on the press of said button. This “Copy Job” can take place entirely on the server, or between the ix2-200 and other USB or networked devices without the need for a computer to access the server.
