Summary: When you are in a must have "on-the-go office" environment , this product makes life a lot more productive. With ample storage space and fast transfer rate, you can truly take your office with you. Once again Iomega has came through with a great product.
Summary: This drive works as advertised, and I love that it is rugged, something you really need in a portable drive. I have some WD portable drives but I'm always concerned that the connector in the back is going to break, it seems a lot flimsier compared to these drives.
Summary: I have been hitching/ busing/ training/ and hiking around the world for 8 months now. This drive survived the test. (though I REALLY need to back it up and not test it to much longer) I have almost a full terabyte of HD footage on the drive from all around the world. I trust it fully and have have 0 problems so far. (if I lose the data now its my own fault for not having it backed up) I recommend this to anybody who is looking for a solid drive.
Summary: This hard drive is a piece of junk, it didn't even last 6 months and I never even dropped it. I noticed it starting to make noise when I was saving files to it last month, now today right in the middle of transferring a file it stopped making that file unrecoverable and locking up the hard drive. I have had other Iomega drives but won't waste my money again.
Summary: I purchased this drive approximately 8 months ago and have been on about 16 weeks of travel with it. I use it as a 'clone' drive with my MBP and have it partitioned in to 3 parts. 2 duplicate the drives in my MBP and the 3rd is just there for extra storage. It's been plenty fast and I haven't had any reliability issues.
Summary: I bought Iomega eGo 1 TB external HDD to keep backup of my old Westren Digital 500 GB external HDD, just in case if it crash in near future. I removed its virtual CD partition with the help of Iomega support website and create 1 FAT32 and other NTFS partitions. Later, I did few tests on old and new HDDs using same USB 2.0 laptop and found Iomega slower than WD. The average rate of copying data on Iomega eGo HDD is 18 MB/s only. That is too sloweer than my expectation.

Summary: I own an Aspire 8951G and it doesn't work on the USB 3.0 port, constant disconnecting within seconds. Works on USB 2.0 ports though, but then I might as well have gotten an USB 2.0 drive. Also, the cable is not standard USB, it has a special connector and its VERY short (30 cm). Oh and teh virtual drive is a big hassle unless uninstalled (which wasn't possible at the time I bought it) AVOID.
