Summary: I have had this hard drive for over two years now and it hasn't failed me once. I've traveled with it, banged it up a bit, and it's still running. About to run out of space, but definitely a keeper. Love this hard drive.
Summary: I am using OS X and in the time since i purchased this drive I have had zero issues (purchased March of 2010). I used it for automatic backups, which OS X handles automatically through Time Machine. It is very handy to have both Firewire and USB ports int he back of the machine.
Summary: Great backup drive....I had to initially reformat this drive as I use a PC and not a Mac but not a big deal....what I really like is the ability to switch from Firewire and USB 1 or 2 as I use this drive on several different computers. I will buy another exactly like this drive.
Summary: I have a 3 year old white MacBook with 2GB that I wanted to back up. Installation was a snap. I used TimeMachine, however, the drive does come with free back-up software. I used the Firewire 400 cord (my Macbook is not equipped with Firewire 800) with no problems. Fast and easy.
Great external drive - perfect for on site backups

Summary: I had the Iomega MiniMax Hard Drive up and running in under five minutes. The product ships with FireWire and USB cables which makes installation simple - no need to order separate cables for the new drive. It's sturdy and sleek design means I can hide it under other hardware.
