works good/ service net does not honor their coverage

  • Pros: Fast portable and works perfect, this hard drive makes backing up on the mac easy, i really love this drive.
  • Cons: seems to clunk out after a year or so, i paid for the service net warranty and they did not honor their service. I would recommend going to square trade where you get more coverage for less and its actually honored. service net did not ship me a replacement at no cost as they advertised, instead they gave me a gift card for lower than what it cost.

ok drive, i hope

  • Summary: I suppose it would have been more accurate describing the file system compatibility instead, for the hardware, and list the limitations of the software SOMEWHERE since its an advertised selling point. (It's what made me choose it over a marginally more expensive larger drive.
  • Pros: USB and 1394 (a + b) make it easier on compatability.
  • Cons: Description for the drive is a bit misleading (Mac OS X 10.1 - 10.5) being that the backup software is not compatible with OS older than 10.5.

User Review

  • Summary: This little wonder works flawlessly with my 2011 Core i7 MacBook Pro. I use it for Time Machine backups, and I use the 800 MB/s Firewire option rather than USB2. I tried another hard drive made by another manufacturer, but it would always freeze shortly after the backup started. It was a disaster. I actually swapped out MacBooks because I was 'sure' that it was the Mac rather than the hard drive. But on a whim I decided to try this Iomega drive and voila!

Sturdy and satisfactory

  • Summary: This case is designed for the Iomega Portable harddrive. It offers great protection, both inside and out. The case seems both durable and weather proof (or at least weather resistant) too. Yet, the space inside the case to place the portable harddrive is a bit larger than harddrive and can lead to the harddrive sliding around inside if the case is not handled properly.
  • Pros: Good Protection, Rugged, Weatherproof

  • Summary: This is great for transfering large amount of data back and forth and also is drop tested and even comes with an attractive rubber guard. It is also USB 3.0 ready. Great product and you don't need a carring case. Only thing better would be to elimnate the USB cord.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
