Do any of the Home Media series work? I bought the previous one, tinkered with it for several days with the guidance of their technician on the phone, exchanged it by mail, repeated the process with telephone support, and shelved it. Forget the wireless, we couldn't get anything out of it even wired to either of two computers.

-Daniel Hunt quote

With security being a major concern these days leaving your data unprotected could lead to trespassers sneaking into your data. This was always a cause of worry for me, until I got Iomega 3TB Home Media Network Hard Drive, Cloud Edition – 34785. This device helps keep my data secure as the cloud technology is self owned. I am able to synchronize to my files between my laptop and PC like in LAN. During times I am out of my home, I am able to access my files easily. Drag and drop function in this device is highly effective. The device comes with a print server for sharing upto 2 USB printers. I just had to plug to my router and install the software and the device was up and running.

Product Overview

Get high-capacity, reliable home network storage with the Iomega® Home Media Network Hard Drive, Cloud Edition. Easily share and access files, photos, videos, and music between all your computers and with friends and family. It’s powerful and fast, plus the three-step set-up is very simple, even if you’ve never used a network drive before. This feature-rich drive has a built in UPnP™ AV Media Server (DLNA certified) and iTunes™ Server so content can easily be shared between computers and any other digital media adapters such as game consoles, digital picture frames or networked TVs. Plus, automatically post files to your Facebook®, YouTube™ and Flickr™ accounts.

Iomega Personal Cloud
Iomega® Personal Cloud is the revolutionary technology that allows you to protect and share your data. Iomega Personal Cloud is a patent-pending, web-based computing architecture that connects your Iomega StorCenter™ network storage devices to other individuals and/or devices via the Internet. Unlike public and private cloud applications, Iomega’s Personal Cloud technology is completely self-owned – so the content and accessibility is always under your control.

  • Synchronization: Users around the globe can sync files directly between computers as though they were on a local network.
  • Collaboration: Users can view and edit documents (spreadsheets, presentations, and word processing documents, for example) – which is especially useful for helping geographically dispersed workers collaborate in real time.
  • Sharing: Large video, audio, and graphic art files can quickly choke your company's e-mail system. And e-mailing sensitive files can raise security concerns. Iomega Personal Cloud offers drag-and-drop functionality that makes it easy to securely transfer large or confidential files.
  • Security: Personal Cloud is actually far more secure than what most SMBs can do in-house. At many smaller companies, locally stored files are at risk from theft, fire, software problems, and hardware failure. Cloud storage offers built in redundancy at every level: hard drive, server, and datacenter.
  • Low Maintenance: Once the system is set up there is almost no maintenance. You still have to manage user accounts, but jobs like array maintenance and monitoring the health of your data storage simply go away.
  • Archiving: Archiving older files to a remote StorCenter frees up space on your primary StorCenter device for day-to-day business needs. Less capacity required for primary storage saves you money.
  • Backup: Keeping a redundant copy of your data in an offsite location ensures availability in the event of an unforeseen disaster. Remote backups can run in the background after business hours to eliminate network bottlenecks.
  • Power Efficient: Runs cool and quiet with a fan-less design. Supported drive spin down to conserve more energy when the drive is idle. (user adjustable).
  • Print Server: Intelligent print sharing capability for up to 2 USB printers.
  • Expandability: Add storage capacity by connecting external USB Hard Disk Drives. Supports NTFS, HFS+, FAT32, and ext3 formatted hard drives.
  • System Status: Single page view of device information and status.
  • Software Compatibility: Compatible with today’s most common backup software, web browsers, media devices and computers.
  • Native security support with robust username and password authorized access. Create additional users and secure their content with password protection.
  • User Quotas: easily manage capacity by setting maximum limits per user.
  • RSA® BSAFE® technology protects installs and upgrades.
  • Data Protection Software: Iomega’s full suite of data protection software is available for download. The suite includes; Trend Micro™ Internet Security, Iomega QuikProtect and MozyHome™ Online Backup service.
  • Warranty: 3 years (with product registration)
