  • Pros: Pre-formatted for Mac OS. Large capacity. Dual Firewire ports and daisy-chainable. Will spin down and standby if OS supports it (Mac OS X does). Seems to run cool. Quiet. Looks great.
  • Cons: The ON/OFF push button on the back of the drive is absolutely horrible. It'll "catch" inside the case when pushed in and takes some careful fiddling to get it to pop back out.

  • Summary: I have been aware that I really should do something about backing up the life-time of photos amd music. But only dipped my feet in the techie waters when my 320GB drive started to look rather too full. I know nothing about technology.

Iomega eGo Desktop Hard Drive (Mac Edition,2TB)

Dr Zeus "Zachary", Amazon
28 December 2011
