I purchased the original IX2 and did some benchmarking and I have just recently purchased the new IX2-200 hoping for a slight performance increase. It will be interesting to see if there is a performance gain, the IX2 model had two Seagate 7200RPM drives, and the IX2-200 is outfitted with two 5400RPM drives.

Like you I use my Iomega device for hosting photos, my iTunes library, videos etc....however I also use it to store .iso files, Virtual Machine Templates, and occasionally as shared storage for testing ESX features that require it.

Some IX2 (original model) performance results:
