    $99 for a 6-gig NAS! Worked right out of the box. What is not to like!

    Prasanta C. (verified owner)

    It was a no brainer deal! Received in 3 days and the item was as described and very well packed. The NAS inside came in a sealed retail pack with 2x3Tb drives pre-installed. I was up and running in less than 10 minutes!

    The product arrived in good condition. However cannot download the software from Lenovo EMC site as the product is discontinued. Fortunately a third party site has the software so I could make this work.

    Best thing is you can upgrade hard drives, no lenovo support but if I can get it working over the internet so can you. Works right off of samsung phones on “my files” folder . I started to save computer games on it works fine, couldn’t ask for more for price. Use computer over the internet ip for when not in home network. On your phone web browser.

    Great product at an excellent price. Fast and free shipping. A fun site to shop on. Great odd-lots and bargains. This item is brand new (including the drives) but be aware that there are some refurbished items on this site. So, do check the “Additional Information” tab to avoid any misunderstandings.

    Although the IX2 is EOL, the Linux Kernel is from 2019, so really not that old. Really well engineered and excellent software and user interface. Runs a full version of Linux O/S from disk, so it feels like a regular computer. O/S includes Apache, Perl, Python, bash, lsblk and so much more. Definitely not BusyBox. Fun to play with. And really, at this price, it’s like you just paid for the disks.

    FYI: someone has ported the current stable OpenWRT to the IX2 (see openwrt-len-ix2 project on GitHub) but you have to use a serial cable to the mother board — not for the faint of heart. You could probably get the IX2 to boot a new O/S from disk if you have the time and inclination. Google for directions on enabling ssh access.

    Fast and free shipping. Well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. The IX2 is a great little device, especially at these prices. This is my second purchase. The latest Debian O/S is available for this machine (free, of course). Details here: minaret.biz/tips/ix2/index.html or search for Debian Kirkwood.

    Looks nice, built well. The downside? I still can’t get my Windows 10 machine to find the Xi2. Can’t do a thing with it. I mistakenly bought a WD NAS 4TB hard drive and thought the Xi2 was going to be my salvation. Nope, I’m not geek, just a pointer/clicker type. I was hoping for plug and play.

    You guys are great. Received NAS quicker than expected.
    Unit brand new in the box. Fired up & works great.
    Will keep an eye out on your site for future upgrades.
