Pic & disparaging remarks from strangers

REALLY NOISY

FS or SWAP: Iomega Storcenter 250GB Network Drive + Print Server (Hawkes Bay)

Works with Win/Mac/Linux.

250GB.

REALLY NOISY

Probably powered on for less than 200 hours idle, and less than 12 hours of I/O.

Has one 10/100 network port and two USB ports for connecting printers or extra drives.

Selling as hardly used due to being REALLY NOISY.

THIS THING SOUNDS LIKE A LAPTOP COOLING FAN THAT HAS LOST ITS BISCUIT.

FAN RANDOMLY COMES ON EVEN WITH NO I/O.

NOT A SINGLE SHRED OF WIFE-APPROVAL-FACTOR HAS BEEN MANUFACTURED INTO THIS DEVICE. EVEN THE KIDS WILL GET PISSED OFF WITH THE NOISE.


Normal behaviour for this model - all the reviews complain about the same thing.

It has an easy to press power button, so would suit infrequent use, or if you have a location in mind where noise doesn't matter.

REALLY NOISY

Works greta. No faults.

$50 delivered. Or swap for W.H.Y.

Pickup in Hastings ($40).

Includes power cable.

REALLY NOISY

Does not include network cable.
Not wireless (but plug into your router and your WiFi clients can see it).
No software included - visit Iomega support for Storcenter Desktop <360GB for downloads and specs.

Just one question.

How noisy is it?

A noisy noise annoys a noisy oyster.

This drive would irk the heck out of any species of bivalve mollusc with highly calcified valves, even those that generate sound pressure levels considered to be disruptive.

It's a print server - it'll be dead quiet ;-)

No visible screws. The top panel comes off somehow, but I cant see how.

The fan points directly at the network port, USB ports and I assume the PCB - it doesn't seem to be a drive cooler.

You could disconnect the fan easily enough I suppose.
