Summary: I got this to have large backup; it has a reserved space of 275GB for iomega junk programs. I've read on their website numerous times to see how to delete the area and haven't been able to find anything to help. its too much waste.
Summary: I've only had this thing for six months, come to find out that it is failing already. It's not loading and make a clicking noise. This event is so common that wikipedia has it's own page dedicated called the "iomega click of death". And do you think Iomega stands by thier products? No- only if you pay more money, and even then nothing happens. To me a company that doesn't stand by it's products, and they fail so commonly and quickly is an irreputable and corrupt company.
Summary: Like many others, mine has died too. Worked great for 6 weeks. One day, started clicking. Iomega sent out power cable. No go. Iomega charges me $25 advance shipping fee. Get new drive, lasts 30 minutes. Haven't even sent back the first one yet. Now I have to ship two back. Stay away!!!!!!
Summary: I have had this drive for only 8 weeks and was just told by iomega it has malfunctioned and will cost between $900 -$3000.00 to recover the data. When I first used it, it did work well, but I expect a drive to last longer than 8 weeks. I have spent over 2 hours total on the live support chat to have them offer me a new drive, once I pay a fortune to recover my data, no thanks, I will go back to a brand I trust.
Summary: OK, maybe I got a bad drive, but this drive dropped the USB connection in the middle of Windows backups on both Windows 7 and Windows XP based PCs. After the third attempt to use the drive, it powered down in the middle of the backup and will no longer turn on. The drive was very hot after each backup attempt leading me to believe that this drive may have an issue with overheating.
Summary: I have always used iomega hard drives and I am very pleased, but this one didn't have the same results. I backed up about 1TB of data on it the day I got it and the next day it stopped working.:( It makes a terrible clicking noise, constantly.
Summary: Drive died after just five weeks. Over 30 days so couldn't exchange with Amazon. Support options with Iomega are horrible. No phone support unless you want to pay $25. Must chat online to get an RMA. If you need to call back - chat again. No advance replacement guaranteed by a credit card, unless you want to pay another $25. Must ship the drive back and wait for a replacement. Still waiting....
