  • 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+!

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). This particular model is not fit for consideration. Not only was it an out of box failure, it had been considerably cheapened, construction wise, over the earlier models.

  • 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.

Working well for me

Dave, Amazon

  • 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. Before I configured it for TM, I copied several files and directories to and from the drive with no issues. Transfer speeds are very fast. As with any backup - the real test is when you try to restore from your backups.

Unreliable

F. Harvey, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought two of these in the last two years and both died taking all my 6-months worth of back-ups. Put your money somewhere else! This external hard drive is good for nothing!!! I talked with some Mac technicians, unfortunately, too late, and they tell me that Iomega hard drives are notably unreliable. Protect yourself and your money by buying something else.

Works exactly as it should

  • Summary: This drive worked right out of the box, no formatting needed. It includes a FireWire 400/800 adapter cable, so there was no delay setting it up - it took less than five minutes. It's fast and reasonably quiet.

Iomega MiniMax 1TB

  • Summary: Received the drive, plugged it in and it went to work. It came with everything needed. I used the FireWire 800 cable and am very pleased with the responsiveness of the drive. I am using it as a TimeMachine backup drive and the setup could not have been easier. It just works!

Bad Product, Worse Company Support!!!

K. Miner, Amazon
11 June 2011
  • Summary: Hard drive developed the "click of death" in one year and one month. Iomega's stance is that it is out of warranty and not only offers no support but wants to charge me $25 just to call their tech support. I had a WD drive fail after two and a half years and received a full replacement. Fortunately I had the data backed up with Mozy so I am only out the purchase price and the time and trouble to restore my files. I will NEVER buy another iomega product.
