Great value!

  • 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.

Be careful. Your data is not save here.

22 May 2013
  • 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.

Crashed after two years.

Mike, Amazon

  • 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.

Do NOT buy this product!

Anita Meola, Amazon
13 February 2013
  • 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.

TOO NOISY FOR ME

Perry Lundberg, Amazon
11 August 2012
  • 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.

UUUUMMMMMMM!

Adsta33, Amazon
30 October 2011
  • 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.
