Customer Reviews:

  • Does what it should!
    Have had this hard drive for a month or so and it is working great. I reformatted it for use with a Mac - no muss - no fuss. It is working great as a Time Machine back up drive. So far so good! Go for it!...more info
  • I work just fine
    Iomega HDD work perfectly this is the third one I owe, firs I purchased a 320 GB, then moved to a 500 GB and finally my manly vanity made me move to a 1TB.
    The HDD are just fine, they work fast and are very reliable. I recomend them a lot....more info
  • Great back-up drive
    I'm happy with the drive. It's good looking on my desk, but more importantly it is a vital part of my system back-up. Reliable, easy to set up, and runs quietly....more info
  • Good hard drive for light use.
    I use this external HD for storing all my music and pictures so they don't slow down my computer. So far, it's worked well for that and I can even run itunes off of the external HD and it pulls the music and plays it fast enough that I never have a problem. After reading on some other reviews, I don't leave it on all the time. I'm running windows vista on a PC with 1G of ram and have no problems. The files transferred fairly quickly - about 30 or 40 minutes through USB for 30 GB of music. I'm sure the firewire is quicker, but it is also more expensive and I rarely need to do transfers.
    Been in use for a little over a month now, which is why it only gets 4 stars....more info

  • I like the Iomega 500Gb
    I needed a USB drive to backup several machines, and after formatting the disk to my needs (it was already formatted as one partition) it worked like a charm! Nothing to install or fool with other than wall and USB connections....more info
  • Excelente!
    Acabamento de primeira, bonito, e de funcionamento dentro do esperado. A ¨²nica observa??o que fa?o ¨¦ a posi??o da luz que monitora o funcionamento do drive. Ela fica junto ¨¤s entradas dos cabos e, por causa disso, acabou ficando virado para tr¨¢s, pois eu o coloquei ao lado do monitor, de frente para mim. Dessa forma fica dif¨ªcil verificar se ele est¨¢ acessando ou n?o o disco. Se ela tivesse uma outra luz na grade frontal ou na parte superior ia ser ideal. ...more info
  • Easy to use and reliable
    The drive is very easy to use. I plugged it in and immediately it worked. No fussing or worry. I am really glad I got this one!...more info
  • gnarly
    I love this thing. Being a photographer, I'm always looking for ways to store/save/access my work. I was debating between a pro Flickr account, really, and a few other upload sites. I ended up being recommended to get this product (more like the 500gig), and I did my research, compared prices and benefits of other outlets, and I ended up deciding with this one. It's amazing, I love it. I can truly organize my photos the way I want to, and it certainly keeps them on-hand, and I can access them even without a network/internet connection, whereas you can't do that with upload sites and such.

    Not just that, but I literally store everything on it. As I update my music collection, I store them on here, rather than my/a computer, until I upload them to my iPod. I keep all my documents and (downloaded) programs and such on here, as well, that way they don't take up space on my (or anybody's) computer.

    I highly recommend the brand. Obviously 1.5tbs isn't for everybody, but this hard drive definitely is/can be. ...more info

  • Excellent drive that comes with great backup software
    I found the Iomega 1 TB desktop drive to be very reliable and easy to install. I liked this drive (and its price) so much I have recommended it to many friends! The EMC Retrospect software that comes with it is highly configurable and it alone is worth the price of the drive. (I have spent a long time searching out various backup software solutions and this is the best and easiest I have found). The only quibble I have is that the 'terabyte' is 931GB (I think the difference is that they use 1000 bytes = 1 KB, whereas in reality it is 1024 bytes = 1KB, this makes quite a bit of a difference when you get to large drive volumes). ...more info

  • Good except its not really 1TB
    Just purchased this item last week. Overall impression on the product is on par as described. Only thing I am not happy about is its not really 1TB. Before and after formatting, it only shows about 930GB available space. Where is the other 70G?...more info
  • Garbage
    I have one right now with all my pictures and files on it. It is dead. Iomega sent me a new power cord after chat diagnose. They said it wasn't getting the power it should. The cord is identical to the one it came with and it still won't turn on or boot up or transfer my pictures back to the desktop. They offered to exchange it which I will do as soon as I fugure out how to get my stuff off. The cost for them to remove my pictures: $700- $2900. I will take the exchange but I will probably sell it on ebay. ...more info

  • don't have anything to complain about
    Have owned this product for 2 weeks now. I have it hooked up to my ibook. I purchased it with the only intent to store all of my MP3s on it. I was worried initially because i read reviews saying it was noisy and the fan was obnoxious. I have not had any of those issues. I do hear a small click like noise when it does kick on to pull from the device but other than i think it sits dormant. I like it. No complaints here!...more info
  • Iomega... Not So Good - Don't Buy!
    I purchased this unit to serve as a back drive for my primary system. However, after 50 days AND ONLY SIX BACKUP OPERATIONS the drive has given up the ghost. The drive was only powered up for the back up operations so it has been ON less that 12 hours. Checking the Iomega Web page and various forums for a fix or some clues as to what happened revealed that I am not the only one to have had the unit die after short time use; there does seem to be a mechanical problem that they are not addressing. I omega's attitude toward warranty work is pretty lame also... you can't TALK to anyone for free... only text chatting over the net that resulted in the following "send it back we will send you a new one" (well not really new; a refurbished unit that crashed for someone else). And to add insult to injury, Iomega won't pay the shipping costs. Needless to say, no more Iomega products for me or the firm where I am the purchasing agent...more info
