Established in the 1980s, Iomega has been a forerunner for digital storage in both the consumer market and business sector. Back in 2008 EMC acquired Iomega but still maintained the Iomega branding. Earlier this year Lenovo teamed up for a joint venture to create LenovoEMC and their products now abstain from using the Iomega name.

Today we will be taking a look at the Iomega PX6-300D – a network storage device capable of housing up to six HDDs and coming equipped with a software UI to even the most demanding of requirements for the home/small office network.
