Iomega External Hard Drive

MacheteJason, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: I have been using this for almost 2 years to store music and videos and it has done a solid job. I was a little disappointed it does not work with Windows 7 backup but that is a common problem with external hard drives. It is a nice looking unit and doesn't make as much noise as other external hard drives. The entire drive sits comfortably on a nearby shelf since the cables are solid and also a decent length.

Best USB 3.0 External I Have Found

NRiyo3, Amazon
12 June 2013
  • Summary: I have tried many external drives. I like these the most so far. They work every time and do not need a power supply (less to carry). I like how small they are. Also they are easy to format for Mac PC and PS3.

But I ordered a DVR expander!!!

chuck summers, Amazon
14 February 2013
  • Summary: While I have a high regard for Iomega products, I dont understand how it could be so hard to get a DVR expander. The one I previously had died and I wantyed to replace it. The product sent was a Backup portable drive. To be sure I would reccomment the drive to anyone because Iomega has excellentproducts. What I dont like is not getting what I ordered. If this product is no longer made it should be noted on the web site.

Excellent Device for DirecTV DVR

G. Hessler, Amazon
17 April 2011
  • Summary: Purchased this to use on my DirecTV Satellite receiver as the internal drive appeared to be freezing up during guide usage and during playback. This drive has taken over the task perfectly. Guide is now much faster and there are no freeze-ups during playback of recorded programs. Plus, the storage space is so good that I don't have to be concerned about constantly purging the contents of the drive.

very fast-no power saving mode

regular cust, Amazon
18 March 2011
  • Summary: This 2 TB external hard drive is very fast and works quite well. If computer is setup with AHCI turned on (vs. IDE) it is a plug and play drive on eSATA. If you leave computer on IDE the PC will not complete a restart/reboot. You have to disconnect the drive and restart the PC again. Then turn the drive on... usually it will load to "my computer" on its own... but you may need to go into device manager and scan for new hardware... that works everytime.

Good but not as nice as it looks in the pictures

TobyT, Amazon
31 December 2010
  • Summary: The drive looks great in the picture but it's hard to tell that the front and back are an off putting gray plastic (same with the base). However, this doesn't detract from the overall quality of the unit. The enclosure feels solid and the the brushed aluminum look is stylish and well done. Cons: Other than the plastic look and color the only other gripe I have is the flimsy eSATA port.

Fast, sturdy, high capacity

Bennett Smith, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: This is a very well built hard drive. The eSATA interface is noticeably faster than USB 2.0. It doesn't come loaded with any software or useless rubbish. You choose which software you want by downloading it from Iomega's website. I really like the Quick Protect program, which automatically updates the files you have backed up when there are changes.
