Iomega

Consumer Democracy
22 May 2010
  • Summary: Fast, reliable, and I love the Hotburn Pro software - much better than Easy CD Creator and better than Nero because of its additional features.
  • Pros: No CD ripping features - need other software - would be nice to have "all in one".
  • Cons: No CD ripping features - need other software - would be nice to have "all in one".

expensive mistake

allears, Amazon
15 May 2009
  • Summary: Seemed like a good idea at the time -- putting all the pictures from last summer on an external drive rather than burning a stack of CDs. Until within a month the drive fails (with 6 month remaining on the one year warranty) and Iomega wants $1200 to open it up and recover the data. If you go with external drives better back up the back up. And if you're looking for someone to recover data, try Gillware -- half the price of Iomega.

fine hard disk, but you need 2 USB to power it (or just one firewire)

  • Summary: Also it gets much hotter than the iomega eGo 160 Gb (may be it is just the rpm difference, still a big difference in heating). I think it is okay for the price (~USD80).

Convenient package, bad first impression

Mister Impossible, Amazon
7 June 2008
  • Summary: I own a MacBook and use 10.5. I bought this hard drive because I have a friend that needed the simplest backup solution possible. This meant not purchasing a 3.5 enclosure that had a power brick. The beauty of this drive is that it can be powered by Firewire or USB. The MacBook doesn't supply enough power over USB to power it, so you'll have to use Firewire.

Iomega drive fails

Charles Levinsky, Amazon
27 May 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the 120GB Silver external drive to back up my laptop hard drive. The first unit copied the lap top drive but then would not mount on any of my computers. I sent it back to Iomega and they sent me a refurbished replacement. I tried to back up the lap top drive again but part way through the Iomega drive quit and would no longer mount on my computers.They want to replace it again and will not refund my money.I have bought my last Iomega product.

  • Summary: I own a powerbook G4 and this little drive was powered and worked very well with the fire wire. I am very pleased with the size and look of this device as it complements the computers look as well. I would definitely recommend this product.

Exactly what I wanted!

J. Ferguson, Amazon
14 March 2008
  • Summary: After reading several reviews on many different portable drives, I decided to buy this one. It has turned out ot be a very wise decision. I wanted something small and light that needed no power adapter. It had to be user friendly and able to store whatever I wanted to put on it. This thing is just as easy to use as a flash drive and works very well using the usb cable. I haven't tried the firewire yet. I also use this as a privacy drive by using Folderlock software.

Great Item for the Price and Size!

Steve Richardson, Amazon
25 February 2008
  • Summary: I was very pleased with the product. I am using this with a laptop so I wanted to have an external drive to work with Mac's new Time Machine program and it has worked great! It is also very small so it doesn't take up a lot of space.

Iomega 33634 Silver Series 120 GB USB 2.0/FireWire Portable Hard Drive (Purchased on 01/21/2008)

Lowell E. Kraft, Amazon
22 February 2008
  • Summary: 22Feb2008 I am not happy with the installation onto my Apple MacBook Pro. Something seems to be wrong with the installation disc. I believe it should be replaced. I have gone through the steps numerous times on the printed installation instructions to no avail. I would like to use The Time Machine feature on my computer to initiate saving on this Portable Hard Drive. I cannot save anything to this Portable Hard Drive.
