The LenovoEMC™ px2-300d Network Storage

June 30, 2013

jr.com recently offered the Iomega StorCenter px2-300d 2-Bay Network Storage for $199.99 + free S/H.  At 60% of list, this offer was too good to pass up so I purchased one for my Home Lab.  SlashGear’s Iomega px2-300d NAS Review and Gadget Review’s Lenovo EMC px2-300d Network Storage Review both detail the px2-300d features and benefits.

I am concerned about support for the hard drives that I currently own, the HDDs and SSDs approved for px2-300d list is very limited.

As soon as it arrives I will detail drive compatibility and my performance findings.
