I have an ix4-100 4TB (4 - 1TB drives). Will it (unofficially) support 2TB drives, making it an 8TB unit? I'm assuming I can at least put 1.5TB drives to make it a 6TB unit.

It appears that root access through ssh is possible.
It is necessary to crack the root password to do so. This is not difficult, you find the recipe, even the password, on google. But you are at the mercy of a change of mind from iomega at the next firmware upgrade.
Not an enormous CON argument, but I would not put it in the PROS still.
