very nice, once I got rid of the pre-installed junk

lost in my e-reader "Sufue", Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted a 500GB external portable drive to use for my own style of backup, which is really more syncing than backup - i.e. not Windows 7 backup. I also wanted something with a pretty small form factor, and I found this for a good price on sale. It's not ***quite*** as small as the G-Drive Slim, but it's almost as small, and it was also about 25% less in price. I liked that trade-off.

Excellent Option For Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive

FirePepper Red "firepepper red", Amazon

  • Summary: I own several portable hard drives including Seagate GoFlex, the Western Digitial Essentials portable and Elite drives and now this Iomega Prestige. This Iomega Prestige definitely at the top of the list. It has a sturdy METAL case and a sleek design that is actually marginally smaller than the others. The USB 3.0 interface is extremely fast and backwards compatible with USB 2.0.

Iomega prestige 500gb-super speed-super fast.

  • Summary: You can make the most of this device if you have a 3.0 usb compatible system. At first I couldn't use the 3.0 version since my pc did not have that usb port, but still it worked fine, plus the encrypted security software introduced with this device is really good, keeps all my data safe. But when I recently got a mac, and started using the 3.0 usb of this drive, I could see the difference pretty clearly. The data transfer speed increased upto 10 time of the 2.0 usb !!

  • Summary: I had an older Texas Instruments but I could never do a computer back up on it. Certain files would not transfer. Knowing from the older equipment Iomega made I hoped and was rewarded with a new modern external hard drive. ! or 2 extra steps after the initial backup and voila. Done deal. Now with MSN's new Internet explorer, if my computer starts locking up and I can't get the Windows restore to work I still have old Nelly. Iomega.

Not bad...

  • Summary: Updated November 2013: I bought this in July 2011 for around £50 and updating this review over two years later I'm still reasonably happy with it. The good: + It looks nice and feels well made + It's very compact + It's very quiet and you'd normally have to listen carefully to notice any noise + A single USB port has been sufficient to power it on every computer I have tried it on. But the supplied cable has two connectors just in case.

Nice design, some bundled software, odd cable

A. Hayes, Amazon
1 April 2010
  • Summary: I've just bought the drive and it works fine for me. Unlike some reviewers here, I don't need to plug two USB connectors in to power the unit on my Macbook Pro (which makes the 'Y' cable a little redundant for me, however I will spot in amongst the other cables I guess). Feels robust and the wraparound metal casing looks and feels tougher than many other drives of the kind. There is a small din-power connection point on the drive at the back but no power cable supplied.
