"DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT buy this hard drive."
6 September 2012
Pros: Fast, inexpensive-ish and enough storage for years worth of my photos.
Cons: I've purchased two of these hard drives, & both have failed. I would have lost all of my pictures & songs if I hadn't backed everything up on my Maxtor back-up drive. At first I thought I'd made an error, so replaced it, making 1 error into 2.
Cons: This thing gets so hot I almost burned my hand picking it up. Heat + Hard-drive = disaster! Its called Mac Edition yet I had to format it so I could save large files. Really wished i had passed on this one and bought the Lacie. I have to keep it unplugge

Pros: Just plug into Mac
Cons: Cover just popped off after first use. Unit heated up and top cover came off on its own. Got another one from a different seller and same thing happend. Can't believe iomega would have such poor quality control.

Have you seen a normal S-ATA hard drive (the actual disc)? Well...
