I always use the FireWire hookup for the speed and it works great. Highly recommend

  • Summary: This has served me well for all of my backups and extra storage. So far, it's been fast and reliable with my MacBook Pro and does what it's supposed to. I always use the FireWire hookup for the speed and it works great. Highly recommend!

  • Summary: For the longest time I've used the Iomega Minimax as my USB and Firewire 800 hub. While the documentation from Iomega says you can not use both USB and Firewire at the same time, I found somewhere online how to make the connection.

  • Summary: There is an issue with this product's compatibility with Apple Snow Leopard. Product must be unplugged from the computer in order the for the computer to start or restart properly. But strictly for storage, it is A+!

  • Summary: Been working fine for me since 2010. Not sure how it costs more now than it did back then, but I about to pull the 1TB drive out, and put in a 3TB.

Out of box failure. Didn't bother trying another one.

  • Summary: I've purchased this brand and style of macMini stackable drive by iomega before in an earlier model. Those models have since failed and were replaced by SSDs or cloud drives. However they looked and worked great while they lasted (a little loud though).

Mediocre HDD in an unreliable enclosure

John Clawson, Amazon
2 December 2012
  • Summary: I've actually been using a MiniMax drive for a couple of years now. One of my primary reasons to get it over any other was the built-in USB hub, which is rather handy. Unfortunately, the drive that comes inside is extremely loud, so I always did my best to get it as far from me as possible.

Don't buy this if you plan to use it with an Airport Extreme router (or don't buy any Iomega product for that matter)

  • Summary: They're not the same company they used to be as they got bought out by EMC around 2009. Their technical support has been useless, and you can only contact them through a web chat while your product is in warranty, unless you want to pay $25 per incident to talk on the phone.

  • Summary: I have been using this product since late 2011 with no issues! I use this drive as a external drive to a late 2011 Mac Mini. Setup is a breeze!! UPDATE: 11/25/2013: I am adding another star, this drive is still going strong and has not had any issues!!

Working well for me

  • Summary: I bought this HD to do my Time Machine Backups for my iMac. I looked for something reliable, relatively small footprint, and a firewire 800 connection. So far I have no complaints. It was easy to setup and connect right out of the box.
