Summary: LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE! In this day and age, you HAVE to protect your files, pictures and important documents. This is the way to go! Stop pondering and hit add to cart. You'll be glad you did.
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. If you need some extra space for your laptop and want to be able to take it with you, the Iomega portable harddrives are the way to go.
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: I bought this drive as a backup to my backup after experiencing failures on different backup drives. After losing some pretty valuable data, my paranoia was at an all-time high. Now I back up to 2 external drives AND to DVDs. The eGo BlackBelt works seamlessly with Mac's Time Machine and connecting it over FireWire helps minimize the transfer time. It's nice and compact so i can easily hide it away in a drawer after backing up my data.
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. Back up everything on my work computer every week (about 56GB) and it only takes a 2-3 minutes. Quality is really nice....feels like you could drop it and it would be fine.
