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: 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: It's small, light, very fast with FW800. Because it draws power from the cable, you can move your laptop while backup is ongoing. (Yes, a stupid thing to do, but still. Just don't close the laptop cover.) I use it mostly with TimeMachine.
Summary: Got the drive (1TB) to have some extra storage for dealing with large video files on my macbook pro. Using the firewire 800, very reliable 80MB/sec (5GB/min) transfer rate. Not sure how this compares with other drives available on today's market, but this is faster than the servers I use at work...
Summary: This external hard drive is amazing! Just plug it in and GO! Auto syncs with time machine, or you can op out to just pick the files you want. I use it to work on large projects at school that a flash drive can't handle.
Summary: I bought this hard drive after I read a review on CNET and it is well worth it. It is both small and well designed, much more modern than the orange one Lacie offers. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
