The drawer does not open most of the time...would not purchase this unit

Summary: The drawer does not open consistently so most of the time you have to put a paper clip in the little hole to remove your CD...when I went on line to see if others had problems with this, it sounds like a common problem with this particular unit.
Summary: I have now purchased both the 1TB and the 500GB Iomega portable hard drives and they are with every penny. They are fast and reliable. The drop guard gives that added security on the device you won't normally have on a standard external harddrive.
Summary: Before I bought this external hard drive I did some research and this one was a bit more expensive but it's specifically for Mac, and it looks protected, so I went for it. The problem was not in the product but the 3rd party who actually sells it to you.
Summary: This hard drive is my favorite so far. Holds a ton, doesn't have to be plugged in and it's small and light. I can pop it in my backpack an have my home files with me at the office without having to drag my whole laptop in. Transfer rate seems good. Nice sleek design. Great hd.
Summary: Great Product. I have had it for about 2 months now, and it is super fast. Loving the firewire with my new macbook pro, way faster than USB. I think USB 3.0 is going to be faster, but I can't imagine anything faster than this.
Summary: When researching an external hard drive for back up purposes for basic media (photos, music, documents, etc), I found some of the information out there to be really confusing for a non-technical person.
