Pros: Security Features, Durability, Storage, rich feature set
Cons: might be difficult for a noob
"I bought mine when it was owned by iOmega. I liked the product features, stability, performance and such, until I moved to Windows 8. At that point, software support and compatibility was poor for Windows 8 until Lenovo purchased iOmega. Now that the product is Lenovo, I am very happy with what they have done and it seems that everything is in the good column for me now. I like that the Lenovo EMC Storage Manager software makes the device manageable again. I would recommend this product to others."
Pros: Input/Output compatibility, Warranty, Included software, Durability, Build Quality, Storage, supports more drives than recommended
Cons: vista compatibility (in my setup)
"Purchased based on reviews on other sites, design, simplicity, and availability without drives. Wanted something that would automatically back up my stuff and would reside elsewhere from my PCs; it's currently on the floor in the front closet. Using a Seagate drive not on the "approved" list and no problems when I let the software reformat it. Web interface is simple but adequate, performance is fine for nighttime backups, and features are beyond what I would need. Durable construction and it looks great. A few settings could be more user-friendly so devote some time to setup; if you are very inexperienced with hardware, you might look elsewhere. Works great with Windows 7 and 8, trouble with Vista. It's cool, it's quiet, and it works. I'm happy."
