Horrible motor that is known to crash

infinite7mind, Amazon
27 May 2015
  • Summary: Nothing wrong with the delivery but I should've learned about this hard drive before I purchased it. Horrible motor that is known to crash. Mine did, I didn't back up my files and lost all my music, smh. Lesson learned

Didn't work for me???

Ron Law, Amazon
1 June 2013
  • Summary: Iomega has always been a good product to my knowledge. The look of it was great, it was a cool looking addition to a mac mini. Unfortunately, mine didn't work. Thankfully, the return process with Amazon was painless.

Died after two years

Derrill Dabkoski, Amazon
20 April 2012
  • Summary: The hard drive crashed after only 2 years of continuous use. That's pretty lousy even for an external drive. Other than that it worked fine though.

Failed after 1 year!

BradPepe, Amazon
18 April 2011
  • Summary: Just as others stated here, I had the drive connected to my iMac and was very happy with it. Then just at the 1 year mark, it started to fail. I was able to reformat it and had it work for about 1 week. Piece of junk! The 1 year warranty was up right when it failed too.

Included cable won't connect to current Mac minis

Dr. Stuart Cheshire, Amazon
4 September 2009
  • Summary: I like the MiniMax because it stacks neatly under a Mac mini, and I've bought several. It includes a convenient short FireWire 400 cable to connect to the Mac mini stacked on top, which is nice, but since 2009 Mac minis now use FireWire 800, so that cable is not very useful any more.

Description inaccurate - won't power down.

michael peachey, Amazon
29 June 2009
  • Summary: The first one of these I got was as described by others - it looked used. There were scrateches on the case, and it was missing both cables and the CD-ROM. I returned it to Amazon with no trouble and got a second one. This one looked new.

Nicht empfehlenswert

Daishima, Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: Wie hier schon oft beschrieben, erlebte ich heute nach 11/2 Jahren auch den Totalausfall der Platte. Am Abend noch einwandfreie Funktion, heute morgen war dann kein Arbeiten mehr möglich. Kein (noch so teures) Datenrettungstool wollte helfen, so dass nur die Formatierung bleibt.
