Iomega is not what it used to be!

A.J., Amazon
22 May 2013
  • Summary: I have used all brands and went back to Iomega external hard drive. The reason was the way its software used to work. However, Iomega's new CEO has a warped vision and has lost touch with those like me who made Iomega what it is today, worthy enough that it got bought by a French company.

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

lost in my e-reader "Sufue", Amazon
8 March 2012
  • 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.

Iomega Encryption Utility Issue (CDFS)

Rui Seixas Monteiro, Amazon
17 September 2011
  • Summary: So far so good with my 750 GB (698.5 GiB) unity. I don't give 5 stars because the CDFS associated to the Iomega Encryption Utility, that gave a headache to remove it. In the end, it was easy!

small, sleek, so far fine, can't tell about USB 3.0 yet

B. Capossere, Amazon

  • Summary: The Iomega Prestige comes in a very sleek and small package. Despite its size, it has some heft to it and feel quite sturdy and durable. It's speed is a bit slower than my equivalent verbatim and somewhat faster than my Iomega eGo portable drives.

Iomega prestige 500gb-super speed-super fast.

Mark Johnson, Amazon
28 February 2011
  • 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.

  • 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.

Not bad...

19 August 2011
  • 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.
