Summary: I bought this a couple of years ago and it is still working. I like this external hard drive and have never used the stand because I feel safer with it flat on the desktop because I've knocked some off my desk when they were standing up (prior to this one).
Summary: Yes I connected this to my USB 3.0 port (as well, I tested it on my USB 2.0 port). 64KB block size used for test using ParkDrive free software. USB 3.0 port: 35MB/sec read speed, 39MB/sec write speed USB 2.0 port: 28MB/sec read speed, 28MB/sec write speed I am going to search for a faster external USB3 drive as I need one with a faster speed to work with an all in one PC I am looking to purchase.
Iomega Prestige 1 TB USB 3.0/USB 2.0 Desktop Hard Drive
30 November 2013
Summary: item arrived timely, securely packaged. Unit worked right out of the box. I use in conjunction with Norton 360 to backup my system. Response is fast. Reliable. I turn off when not in use and, as an extra precaution, turn off internet during backup.
Summary: More and more everything is become digital. A large hardrive in the home is becoming a must. i was impressed with Iomega that it provides what you'd expect. no tricks just something that works solidly. i have had mine almost two years now and still havent filled it up.
