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.
Summary: Use it every day, have not had any problems with it. I would purchase it again if I needed another one. The rubber protections case is easy to remove. The only thing I would change is the glossy finish because I hate fingerprints.
