Died after 18 months

J. Lord "Justus", Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: It was a good price, decent case design, completely silent. Mine was a 2TB model even though the link says 1TB. Used it as a PC media drive via eSata attached as shown in picture in the stand. I liked the low profile. 2 weeks ago it started disconnecting randomly.

Can't get drive to work on Comcast DVR

Jim, Amazon
29 October 2012
  • Summary: This drive seems to work on my PC, but not on the Comcast Cisco RNG200 DVR. Iomega product support suggests I talk with Comcast. Comcast refers one to the Drive manufacturer. So no help on any front.

Didn't work with my Explorer 8300HD

Tom1996 "Tom1996", Amazon

  • Summary: Many folks praised this 1TB drive for use as a DVR extender. Most described how easy it was to use with their Fios DVR cable box. Another person had good experience using it with Cablevisions Explorer 8300 and 8300HD. It did not work with my Explorer 8300HD, in fact it messed up my recordings.

Breaks easily.

Reviewer, Amazon
24 August 2012
  • Summary: Unfortunately, after using this product for less than a month, the connection became faulty and weak, and simply fell out of the port if touched. I would have to hold the wire into place if I wanted to be able to use the hard drive, and if it disconnected for even a second, I would have to restart...

Iomega Prestige Failed

JC, Amazon

  • Summary: My computer is unable to read the device majority of the time. Message flashes when it does connect that the device was not removed properly even though it hasn't been moved and is still connected. Never know when I will be able to access the drive.
