Could not get my 27" iMac to boot from the 1TB version

5 Ideas, Amazon
10 December 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this drive with the intent to use it as a backup device from which I could boot in the event of a hard drive failure on my iMac. No matter what I tried (PRAM reset, SMC reset) I could not get my 27" iMac (from late 2009) to boot from this drive. The funny thing is, I had the 500MB version of this drive in the past and I was able to boot from backup images using various Macbooks. Perhaps there is a difference between the two versions of the drives?

Nice drive but died after only 6 months

Snotspill, Amazon

  • Summary: This was a pleasing, quiet and fast drive while it lasted. Unfortunately, it has broken down after only 6 months of moderate usage, apparently due to defective sectors. The Apple disk tool was not able to repair the drive so I had to buy the DiskWarrior app (£80!!!!) to salvage my data. The drive will hopefully be replaced by the manufacturer, but I wouldn't recommend relying on this drive without making regular backups to your files.

Der Schlendrian schleicht sich ein....

B. Franke "rockerhase", Amazon
27 April 2013
  • Summary: Ich verwende bereits über 2 Jahre eine ähnliche FW800 Festplatte von iomega. Damals hat alles geklappt... anschließen und gut. Auch die Registrierung bei dem Hersteller. Bei diesem Produkt war die Formatierung des Filesystems fehlerhaft, mußte also wiederholt werden. Wieso verkauft man überhaupt vorformatierte Platten, wo doch sonst um jeden cent Aufwand gerungen wird ? Dann kann man sich die Trennung zwischen PC und MAC auch sparen.
