Mac World recently released a review of the Iomega px2-300d, a two bay NAS device intended for small or medium business use. We've already featured a couple of reviews about the px-300d, but more context is always better when making such a high-value purchase decision.
Overall, Mac World likes the px2-300d, but mention that many users could likely save a significant amount by adding their own drives rather than buying the device drives-included. From their summary:
The Storcenter px2-300d is more than capable of providing a small- to medium-sized business with flexible and speedy network storage. In comparison to similar products, the px2-300d is an impressive device, and shines especially bright in the realms of backup and video surveillance. However, Iomega’s inclusion of enterprise-class hard drives pushes the price tag of a populated px2-300d to $1000. If you don’t need the 24/7, 100 percent workload performance that enterprise-class hard drives deliver, you could save $200 to $300 by buying the px2-300d bare ($500) and buying a pair of desktop drives separately.
