Do not buy...
on May 1, 2012
I had this for a week before I sent it back.
I thought this would have been a great way to both back up media files from my iMac and stream them to my xbox, but it performed terribly.
The interface was a little bit overkill to have 3 different ways to access the drive (web browser, software and OsX), but all 3 ways had equally poor performance, with constant connection drops and corrupted files.
I probably spent a minimum of 2 hours a night for a week trying different ways to configure it and make it work as advertised, unfortunately even after multiple calls to costumer service I was only able to transfer 2 files (250-350 MG each) without corruption after dozens of attempt over a rock solid network.
Maybe it's better on windows or a hard wire network? Who knows... But if you are on Mac ( I was using snow leopard with the latest update of the iomega software) and intend to use this device over wifi with intentions similar to my own, simply don't bother.
Put your money into a real NAS or get something more along the lines of a apple time capsule or one of those multi media players like the WD Live TV Hub with the integrated hard drive.
