Iomega have saddled buyers with flawed software

Rogreb, Amazon
25 June 2010
  • Summary: Drive may work fine but the Retrospect it comes bundled with does not. It worked for a while or appeared to, then I got the following message Updating status..." 0 Restore Points available. Multiple reboots later nothing changed. So I started googling and found many others with the same problem. I emailed iomega tech support and ended up with the following message and no further help.. "EMC recently sold Retrospect to Sonic Solutions.

The cable won't be an issue for most users

David Arnstein, Amazon
5 March 2010
  • Summary: In these reviews, the cable provided with this disk drive seems to be the biggest source of problems. Most folks can avoid using this cable though. Most computers don't need the specialized double-plug cable that ships with this disk drive. So you can substitute any normal mini-USB cable that you have on hand. The official USB specification only requires your computer to supply a small amount of power through each USB port.

Well Constructed, Confusing Cable Configuration

Lon J. Seidman "lon@ lon.tv", Amazon
21 February 2010
  • Summary: External drives are a dime a dozen these days, so manufacturers are frequently relying upon the 'value adds' such as innovative casing and software to make their products stand out. This Iomega drive is an excellent and affordable choice that is well constructed for on-the-go computing. The brushed aluminum case is attractive but also strong enough to prevent getting crushed or cracked in a bag.

Rubbish

TRP, Amazon
4 February 2010
  • Summary: As other customers have noted, the USB female port is poorly manufactured, and the connection between the drive and a computer is maddeningly inconsistent. This product is essentially unusable. Shame on Iomega.

Nice portable drive

Arvind Balasubramanian, Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: I've been using this for the past couple of months, and so far I've not had any trouble. Its very light and compact. I had read some earlier reviews which pointed out that the mini-USB plug did not fit smugly into the port on the drive, but I faced no such problem, even when I moved the hard drive while it was connected to my laptop. The only reason I gave it 4 stars, instead of 5, is aesthetics - it certainly isn't the most sleek drive out there!

A lot of space, and great quality, at a low price.

D. Neuner "androiddan", Amazon
27 January 2010
  • Summary: I ordered the Iomega Prestige 320 GB USB external Hard drive because I needed a source to carry my photographs for class plus pdfs, and movies. I am a student and I was looking for something bigger than a thumb drive that did not break the bank and was not large. This hard drive is light, slim, quiet, well made and durable (metal casing). Also, it is surprisingly quick at uploading material.

Portable drive is a great choice for backup and storage

Sidewinder "KC", Amazon
18 December 2009
  • Summary: Iomega Prestige 320 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive 34342, I was a little worried about the fact that this drive didn't have a power cable and was powered by the USB port: Come to find out this is the best feature about this drive. NO Cables to lose! and since this is small enough to put in a pocket, we are always using it for multiple computers. We have two laptops and a desktop.

Cable issue is fixed...

Cheri, Amazon
7 December 2009
  • Summary: I just bought two. On both the cable is snug as a bug in a rug. Doesn't shake loose even when hanging from the computer by the cable. Iomega must have fixed the prior problems. Dec 6, 2009. I've only had a few hours so not much to say yet. It's similar weight to WD Passport Elite I was considering (.4 oz heavier). And 1" longer but no wider or deep. (The Elite was a black Friday purchase & had major defective sectors out of the box.

Great help in Wndows 7 installation

Melvin C. Ree Jr. "Mlo Ylo", Amazon
5 December 2009
  • Summary: My first attempt at "upgrading" from Vista to Windows 7 was a long drawn out finally unsuccessful waste of time on a sunny fall morning. Purchased the Iomega Prestige 320 GB to attempt a "clean" install and it was perfect at receiving the "easy transfer" from Vista and then returning the data to the fresh Windows 7 installation. Worked exactly as promised with no surprises and that is all you can ask.

Good product but should come with password protection

Jim "Jim", Amazon
11 September 2009
  • Summary: Works well and a very reasonable cost. Would recommend. I just do not understand why external hard drives do not come with a simple password protect feature. I had to purchase separate password protect software after a long hard search for a product that did the job.
