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, cable, or computer while using the thing.

A swing and a miss

Tyler Forge "realist", Amazon
23 June 2011
  • Summary: First the good stuff. This is a nice little portable drive with decent storage capacity. It is powered over the USB bus which means there are less cords and stuff to deal with. So, as a portable drive, this is a good one. When it comes to the security features, though, it doesn't quite hit the sweet spot because it depends on auto-run, trusting the proprietary software, and the fact that it is obviously an encrypted drive.

Great little drive with a major setback for Windows Users

  • Summary: *****UPDATE 06/10/2011***** I just tried to use this drive to back up Windows 7 X64 Professional and the update failed multiple times. After researching the error that Windows was generating, I learned that the hard drive included in this drive is a new, ADVANCED FORMAT drive with a sector size of 4096 bytes instead of the previous standard of 512 bytes.

Iomega Prestige Portable Drive

efairchild, Amazon
3 June 2011
  • Summary: The drive is easy to set up - just plug in the USB. The problem I found was with the QuikProtect software provided with the drive by download from Iomega. Put simply, it has been unable to find a "path" and won't do the job as intended. Fortunately there are plenty of other alternative back-up programs available, including freeware, so I am up and running.

Super Festplatte, mistiger Anschluss

VGebhardt, Amazon
22 June 2012
  • Summary: Habe mir diese Festplatte gekauft, weil ich eine kompakte Festplatte ohne zusätzlichem Netzteil für Strom wollte, die ich überall mit hinnehmen kann und wo ich meine ganze Musik, meine Fotos und Filme ablegen kann. 500 GB reichen mir da locker dazu. Habe mich für diese Festplatte entschieden, weil sie gute Bewertungen hatte, gut aussieht, kein Netzteil braucht, leicht ist und wirklich total klein ist, das find ich super!

Technisch gute HD mit lästiger Vorformatierung

Xelzbär, Amazon
3 July 2011
  • Summary: Die Festplatte ist sehr handlich und sieht schick aus, das matte Schwarz ist unempfindlich. Sie ist extrem leise und schnell. Auch mit USB 2.0 schnell und problemlos einsetzbar. Das beiliegende USB-Kabel ist ausreichend lang. Das Betriebssystem (Windows 7 prof. 64bit) erkannte die Platte sofort.

Optisch schön, USB Anschluss an der Seite unzuverlässig

Savini, Amazon
30 May 2010
  • Summary: Ich hatte mir in der Vergangenheit das Vorgängermodell der Iomega Prestige gekauft und war sehr zufrieden damit. Dieser Nachfolger ist etwas kürzer und das war's auch schon mit dem Unterschied - dachte ich. Leider mußte ich feststellen, dass aber zusätzlich der USB Anschluss nicht auf der planen Rückeite (wie beim Vorgänger und allen anderen Platten, die ich kenne) sitzt, sondern an der gewölbten Seitenfläche.
