Summary: The cord has a loose connection like other reviews said. I took a gamble, and this time it was the wrong move. I use this to back up my laptop. Any little movement will disconnect the drive and cause the back up to fail.
Summary: I purchased this in December, 2013. It was quirky from the beginning, sometimes not being recognized by one of my computers. It stopped working altogether by March 2, 2014. It was not heavily used and always well protected. I own other Iomega portable drives that have not had any problem. Extremely disappointed in this one.
Summary: There was nothing in my son's package that stated that one must register their drive within ninety days. He is having trouble with the drive and its interface with his MacPro. Unfortunately one may not speak with folks at iOmega if their drive was not registered within ninety days of purchase without paying a $25 fee up front. Once the fee is paid the phone number to call for service is provided.
Cover melts off, gets messed up if plugged into a PC

Summary: Well it's pretty and functional for the most part. Unfortunately the glue melts every time I use the hard drive so that the blue cover falls off, so I have to keep a hair tie around it to keep it in place. It dries shut again when it cools. That isn't such a big deal, but a weird defect. Also I can't plug it into a Windows or it will need to be restored before I can use it on my mac again, through utilities-->disk utility.
