Summary: Excellent reliable hard drive! Great backup storage option for me since I do a ton of video work on the computer. I love that it has a on off switch so that I am able to keep it handy and ready but it doesnt have to constantly be running.
Summary: Stay away from these. The ultramax uses a Raid controller and if the controller dies your data is gone. Even if you use the mirror (Raid 1) setup. Its unbelievable but i lost my every single data that was duplicated in the second drive and there were no data recovery company that could actually...
Summary: I had one of these for two years before it crashed on me. I lost over 1500 photos and about 12 hours of video. I purchased two of these back then and needless to say; I've already copied the files I have on the other one that didn't crash onto a different brand of external HDD.
Summary: I purchased this item in October 2012. Tried to start it up and it would not power up. Contacted Iomega. They agreed to send a replacement, which they did. Replacement would not power up. So I thought maybe it was the power supply.
Summary: I have had this external hard drive for 2 months and the one thing I do not like is the noise. For an external hard drive, it is extremely noisy. It was ready to be used for my 27" iMAC (late 2009 model). It works fine.
Summary: I have the I TB version of this Omega hard drive or use to .. My replacement ( the first one failed after 1 week ) has just packed up with a familiar plastic burning smell. Ive hardly used this one so is out of its 1 year warranty but I know it will be the board burnt out again.I put the first Omega...
Summary: As another poor buyer stated there were enough good reviews to convince me to buy this unit. Now it may be a good machine but it will not mount on my brand new macbook. Iomega asking me to pay more money for an initial set up is ridiculous when they say it will automatically mount.
Summary: I've used Iomega drives for over 10 years on all my Mac systems and same goes for my company. I've always been satisfied with their products and highly recommend this Iomega Ultramax 4TB for your backup needs.
Summary: easy to order, arrived before the expected date, connected to a Mac via Firewire 400 port, partitioned and works perfectly works as advertised - I'd recommend it for a large storage application, haven't tried it for speed
