Great drive, bad connection

go_rocks, Amazon
30 June 2012
  • Summary: I've used this hard drive for 6 months now, to transfer files to-and-from my laptop at home and my desktop at work on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the cable on this hard-drive tends to come loose and uplug itself, so you risk loss of data if you're not exceedingly cautious not to bump desk, drive,...

Disappointed

T. Farkas, Amazon
13 October 2011
  • Summary: Main reason for buying this (and paying a premium price), was the hope that I would be using Never Down software. I was unable to make that work (Windows 7) after hours of trying. Apparently Never Down is no longer supported and Iomega does not make an attempt to make it work with Windows 7.

Drive fine; software poor

  • Summary: The drive works fine. I'm dinging it with 3 stars due to the frustration with Iomega's software. Drive comes with a flier describing Iomega's "NeverDown" software, which lets you create a bootable clone of your hard disk. Great!

  • Summary: Didn't do what I was hoping it would do. Not to blame this product it was the external hard drive that is the problem.

Mixed bag

manatee, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this drive because of its high-speed eSATA connection, high capacity (2 TB) and extensive software package. I knew going in that Iomega didn't provide the backup software on disk. It had to be downloaded but this was no problem for me ... or so I thought.

never down software

ken, Amazon

  • Summary: The iomega drive was advertised as having a software package "Never Down" which was supposed to back up your system drive to a bootable patrition on the iomega drive which would allow you to boot up from the iomega drive if something happened to your boot drive.

Software not compatible with Win 7

C. Ryan, Amazon
27 January 2011
  • Summary: The drive works great, fast SATA connection instead of USB is a big plus. But I bought the drive in part for the "Never Down" software which is supposed to back up your system drive. It's "included" by which they mean it's not actually in the box, you have to download it.

Iomega eSata/USB 2TB external drive

JLWar, Amazon
25 October 2010
  • Summary: The drive performs very well and very fast. The "included" software must be downloaded from the Iomega website, and there is no CD as mentioned in the documentation. This drive has very inadequate support by Iomega for Windows 7 64-bit OS and some of the software referred to by the documentation...

Excelente servicio postventa

Estrellita81, Ciao
10 March 2012
  • Summary: Es el primer disco duro externo que he comprado, me llamó la atención su buen precio en la Fnac. Sin embargo, a los pocos meses los diferentes ordenadores con los que trabajo dejaron de reconocer el disco duro, solo lo reconcían una de cada diez veces que lo intentaba.
  • Pros: rapidez y efectividad del servicio postventa .  muy económico
  • Cons: presumiblemente el disco que compré era defectuoso
