"serious design flaw- power adaptor issue"

AccessWorld, CNET
6 May 2011
  • Pros: Large capacity and cheap
  • Cons: Had one that crashed after ~ 3 years. Before that, this hard drive would become "disconnected" randomly although it was securely placed on a desk. It turns out that the power adaptor was frequently overloaded that caused the drive to shut down unexpected

So TINY!

Stephanie the Animator, J&R
23 May 2010
  • Summary: I use this drive with my MacBook Air for archival backup of images and videos from my DSLR and other portable drives. Working in RAW and Full HD, I require a lot of disk space, so the sleek design and tiny size are ideal for storing several of these little guys. I just wish they made a 4TB version!
  • Pros: Cheap, Compact, Portable, pretty
  • Cons: I wish it matched my Mac

High Capacity In Small Package

Inventor Tom, J&R
28 April 2010
  • Summary: When coupled with backup software this drive makes it so handy to backup that you no longer have an excuse not to. For the price it is a great value too. I have two other 2-1/2" drives but this is the smallest case of them. Makes it so easy to carry. Brushed anodized metal case looks and feels durable, so many others are plastic.
  • Pros: Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, USB Powered

Super Compact 640GB Drive

Boca, J&R
24 April 2010
  • Summary: This unit is very compact making it easy to travel with. Good transfer rate. The cons are that it is only 640GB [I would've gotten a 1TB if it were available] & the fact that it is not preloaded with backup software. U can download from Iomega EMC Retrospect for backup & vClone to make a mirror of ur C drive. vClone is listed as beta. I downloaded it, made a mirror of my C drive, got a msg that it had done so successfully after a full night run.

Compact, Easy to Operate, Full Featured

Darrell the overworked, J&R
24 April 2010
  • Summary: I have several computers between work, home and other locations - laptops, notebooks, towers, etc and have tried several smaller portable drives but this one is the best so far. The storage capacity is ideal and the speed is great. Size makes it a better choice than other portable drive solutions. It started up right out of the box and was up and running right out of the box.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Versatile

Great capacity at a great price

Athan, J&R
21 February 2010
  • Summary: The IOMEGA 640GB prestige has enough capacity at a great price, to backup my multimedia desktop, my son's gaming desktop and two laptops. This unit comes with EMC Retrospect backup software that is upgradable, for a reasonable fee, to a full version of Retrospect backup for Windows. The full version provides for a bare metal restore.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Versatile
