    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Bang for the Buck
    80 gig's of space for alittle over a 100 dollars. I've had this for 4 months now and it works perfectly. It's quite, fast and everything I wanted and more. I don't know what these others are talking about. I use it just for storing Music ,videos and games. No problems.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Worse product I've bought in a long time.
    Worked great for about 4 weeks then one day I fired it up and "poof" the computer couldn't see it and their tech support concluded that it was broken. I see from other reviews that I'm not the only who has had this problem. I'm serious, someone should start a class action about this HDD. They obviously know it's a lemon. They must have no conscience whatsoever. I lost about 5 years worth of digital photography and about 50 compositions that I've written over the years. All they offered to do was replace it and send my old back. Dream on! I can't afford to lose all the info on this drive. (...).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sweet!
    I got mine. Ignored the fact that the other guy had a bad experience with the fan. He must have got a lemon because mine doesn't make a sound at all. Iomega will replace such things, just in case you didn't know. That's what warranties are for.
    I don't care much for the Iomega software though. Mine seems to hang up...might need some tweeking. But the Norton Ghost 2003 is perfect for my needs. Easy to use. It backed up my entire system in no time flat using the Windows interface.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Want to repel rodents? Buy this drive!
    Just bought one of these. Seems to work okay, but the high pitch, whirring noise of the fan may be of some concern for some users. It produces 50-55 decibels (equivalent to noise emanating from a 30-year old refrigerator). I'll be using it for backup only, so I'll be able to turn it off when not in use. Which, BTW, must be performed by unplugging it since there is no power switch. If you're in need of disk capacity, spend the extra $100 to get yourself into a firewire compatible drive--the transfer rate of USB 2.0 isn't adequate for quick access.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Affordable, reliable disaster recovery and backup...
    Have owned this drive for about 6 weeks. Simple install in Windows XP. Iomega backup software works well. Ghost 2003 was a real bonus and works perfectly including allowing you to write to the USB Iomega in DOS as well as restore in case of disaster, first drive I've seen do that this perfectly. Backed up Ghost images of my two hard drives (about 50GB) in compressed form to the Iomega with no problems whatsoever, all while in DOS environment. If you want simple, efficient backup and off line storage, this is your solution hands down. Paid an incredible $90 for it after a rebate, you can't go wrong. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Floppy of the Future
    When I first unpacked this , I was amazed to see just how compact it was. The software loaded without a hitch and I was up and running. This is a dream come true. It backs up my data as fast if not faster than my old external drive. I bought this because on my job we switched from our old Zip 250 to these, so I needed this at home for work, but wow It does so much more. I loaded all my sons pc games onto it so I could free up the pc's internal drive and they work just as well. I just pop out his disk and place in mine when I need to work. I love it, Thanks Iomega for a great device.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Super Zip
    This is what we needed. Iomega finally gave us a Zip style drive to meet the needs of today. I use this as an external hard drive. It's as fast as my maxtor 80 gig, but with being able to swap disks. I lost alot of data once when my old external maxtor crashed. But with this it's easy to change disks. I had the zip 250 for 5 years and loved it but needed more storage. This is the answer. Software loaded easy and I was up and running in a few minutes.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Great
    This device is simply awesome.

    We've been looking for a back-up solution for some time. At first we looked at DVD based solutions.

    Unfortunately, such solutions have at least four limitations. First, reading and writing to DVD is much slower than a USB hard drive. Second, DVDs can only store 4.7 GB of information. Therefore, backups need to span multiple disks; and forget about storing a hour long .avi file to a single disk. Third, writing information to DVDs requires special software. Fourth, unless you have a cartridge based DVD-RAM drive, you can only re-write data on a DVD about a thousand times.

    This device solves those problems. It is fast, reliable and easy to use. After plugging it into a USB port it functions just like a removable 35 GB hard drive. We use it for backing up data and video files. We can store two hour long .avi files and their mpeg2 equivalents on a single disk.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Backup needs 1 disk for system and 1 for data
    Big suprise to me - Iomega REV software backs up user files ONLY.
    The ad copy says "Save Everything!" but backing up Windows system files to a REV disk requies a special version of Norton Ghost (included with the REV).
    REV Backup and Norton Ghost cannot share one disk even if partitioned.
    Each must have its own disk.
    Backing up a complete hard drive requires 2 REV disks.
    REV Automatic Backup Pro will automatically back up user files at specified intervals but system backups are not automatic because Norton Ghost runs directly from the CD drive not under Windows.

    I found the REV system software install confusing and my first attempt produced a configuration that does not recognize the disk that it created. Nothing in Help or the web site FAQ's addresses this issue.
    I have not taken time to uninstall it and start over.

    The initial REV backup copy of 7.7GB took 3.5 hours.

    Be aware that the software shipped with initial units needs patches before use (available on the Iomega web site).
    I believe that I can get this to work for me - but it isan't a no-brainer install.
    Review pertains to the USB model REV on a Win 2000 Pro system.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One BIG Zip Disk
    This is being marketed as a backup solution, and that's fine, it's a great one and, depending upon what you're using, maybe a little expensive. However, don't overlook (and this isn't obvious at all from their marketing) that this is still just like one very fast, and, very, VERY BIG password protected Zip Drive! Iomega has finally delivered what they promised (and NEVER delivered at 2.0 USB!!!) with the Peerless several years ago. This unit is really small -- the disks are smaller than Zip disks -- and if they keep up with their plans of doubling the capacity every 18 months or so, they may really be onto something. Installation was totally unremarkable and exactly as promised. It comes with a version of Norton Ghost made especially for the Rev. Following the included directions step-by-step re: the Ghost backup is very important. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's Little, It's Blue and it Zips too!
    I have had my USB Zip 250 for year and it is great, its easy to use and easy to carry. The USB powered drive makes it great for any PC and Laptop and can be easily removed from any PC you need to grab data. The problem with 100MB is ok but another issue might come laptop users who don't plug their laptops in. Not to mention that this drive is useless on any PC older then 4 years that lack USB. Overall a darn good product from the people who made high capacity drives so simple.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Iomega Does it Again!
    The Iomega Zip 250 USB-Powered Starter Kit is excellent and a great value. The new powered zip drive is a breeze to install. Just load the software, attache the cable, reboot, and wha-la!! The drive installed immediately on my Win98SE Gateway laptop, with Win98 recognizing the drive and loading its drivers immediately. It is intuitive to use with the Iomegaware 2.8 software (the primary zip application) and creates another drive in your computer. You can drag and drop to your heart's content! I found no difficulty with compatibility at all, as did one reviewer - but perhaps going from PC to MAC or vice versa (as he/she apparently did) does cause problems. The only minor drawback I see is that it is a little noisey. I don't even notice that its particularly slow using older zip 100 disks, but I'm comparing it to a zip 100 parallel - now that's slow! Great product!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Almost Great
    This is a neat little drive. The only reason I got this was because the new Macs don't come with built in zip drives anymore, and I have alot of data on zips. I didn't get the 750MB drive because the specs say it won't write to 100MB zip disks, which this one will.

    At first I was concerned with the funny noises I heard coming from this little drive (remember, my previous experience was a built in 100MB version). It took me a while to realize these were the same sounds that came from the old drive, only much much louder. I don't know if click of death is still an issue with Zip drives, but those noises sure had me worried at first.

    The portability is great, not only can you take the disks anywhere, but the drive itself is small enough to be transported easily. Simply unplug the thing, and you're good to go, it'll work on any computer with a built in USB port.

    Compatibility is another story. I've had no problem reading and writing to Mac100 zip disks. On PC100s and PC250s, disk access is much slower. That's why this is only getting three stars, instead of four or five.

    5-0 out of 5 stars What you're looking for
    If you need an exterior Zip drive, you've found it. This is perfect for your every zip need. It is very small- not much wider then an actual zip disk. In addition, it comes with a rubber stand that can make it take up even less desk space by making it vertical. It is extremely light and therefore portable and easily plugs into your computer with a fast USB cable. There is no necessary installation either. Also, it is good to note that this is a good MB zip drive to get for two reasons- it can still take 100MB ones (the size smaller) and there is no real need for most to get a 700 MB drive (the size larger) because if you're dealing with that much information most people would use a CD instead and it is very hard to find a 700 MB disk. Also, take into account that this is a very good price especially considering it includes 3 disks- which can run $$$ each sometimes.

    1-0 out of 5 stars ZIP 250MB Starter - 3 U250 Disks not included
    This starter kit doesn't contain the U250 disks (10 year guarantee), but the regular 250 MB zip disks (5 year guarantee). I am sending 2 kits back today. Iomega quit making the U250 Zip disks. Someone at Amazon knows about the problem, but the website has not been updated. Don't waste your time ! ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Good while it lasted.
    My 750MB Zip drive malfuctioned just after the warranty had expired. Beware!

    1-0 out of 5 stars The click of death lives!
    Omigod---just bought two of these drives and now they both, with regularity, destroy any disks used in them. But not immediately...everything works great for about 3-4 files, then at some point the drive starts to run, and run, and run---and at the end, you have no files, and 250 MB disks cannot be reformatted (can only do short format on these). Iomega gneraously replaced my disks; great, now all the replacements are corrupted. I guess it's the click of death--the symptoms are very similar in terms of what happens to the disks, but the drives do not click! Iomega tech support never heard of this, naturally. Although cheap, I don't care much for CD-RWs, so I've gone to MO disks---much more reliable, I've never had a failure.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Big Capacity, Easy to Use
    I have been happy with my three older zip drives, and this drive is continuing my unbroken string of satisfaction with Iomega products.

    Installation: The software installed cleanly. I love boring installations!

    Connectivity: The drive ran fine on a hub. It helps that it is self-powered and doesn't need to draw power off the USB line. It comes with an adapter-at least my drive did. (The "Technical Data" section of this site's product description says that the drive is powered by your USB cable. But if you choose to use the adapter, I doubt that that statement is correct.) I later installed a USB 2.0 card and gave the zip drive its own port, but it is still plugged into the adapter.

    Speed: Speed is relative. Even with the obsolete USB 1, the 750 was faster than my 4x CD-RW, my previous backup engine. And now with USB 2.0, it writes a 175 MB zip file in 45 seconds.

    Human Factors: Another reviewer complained that this drive is so lightweight that it just scoots backwards when you try to insert a disk. He's right. So I took a crude but effective approach to "planting" the drive. I took a big piece of duct tape and taped the drive to the top of my system unit. Now the drive is in a real handy spot, and it doesn't budge when I insert a disk. So what if it's no longer portable, and it's more like an internal drive. That's OK.

    Vulnerable to static discharge? It is, according to one reviewer, who had a spark leap from his finger to the drive, and said spark temporarily knocked his drive out of commission. I have had no such problem because with the drive taped in place, I don't have to hold it down with one hand when inserting a disk. So I don't need to touch the case. Also, it may help that the drive is against my system unit's metal case.

    Some nitpicking:
    (1) This drive is much noisier than my previous three zip drives (all internal). Its "zip" noises are loud and raspy.
    (2) Dust might get inside the drive because there is more air space around the door than I have ever seen on a drive. I hope it won't collect enough dust to damage it. I see no way to safely clean it out.
    (3) Iomega innovates so quickly that any Iomega product you buy may soon be obsolete.

    SAVE THE ANTI-STATIC BAG that the drive ships in. If you ever need to carry the drive somewhere, you can use the bag to protect it from static and keep that loose penny in your purse or briefcase from slipping into it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars WINDOWS XP SP1 USERS BEWARE OF THIS DEVICE!
    It performs v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y !!!

    Unfortunately this negative feedback is coming from someone who really likes Iomega products. I've had their Zip products for years, really like their Zip USB 1.1 250MB drive and the 128MB USB 1.1 Mini Drive, both acquired recently, yet this one is going back.

    The problem, I'm pretty sure, is WINXP SP1's support for USB 2.0 disk devices when attached to USB 2.0 ports. Other combinations perform well. I have written several articles on USB 2.0 mini drive products here on Amazon giving those products great reviews, but NOT until I formatted those devices as "NTFS".

    There's something about FAT and FAT32 formats that's in conflict with WINXP.

    Nonetheless, I was optimistic about buying the ZIP 750 because I figured that if it runs slow like the 2.0 mini-drives, I'll just format it as "NTFS". However, six hours after buying it, it was back in its box; I had given up in frustration.

    My benchmark was a web site that weighed 120MB, containing 2899 files. No point starting small given my experience with USB 2.0 mini-drives. Well, it took 10.5 minutes, which was an awfully long time for a 2.0 device on 2.0 ports on a fast Pentium 4. So, I tried to format it as "NTFS" and Iomega's software didn't support anything but "FAT". Not even "FAT32". I saw articles on Iomega's web site indicating that they don't recommend "NTFS" for Zip products, yet they provide instructions on how to use WINXP to do the formatting instead of their own software. It's not point and click, folks ... but never mind, because once I formatted it as NTFS this benchmark ran in 12 mins 50 secs. 10MB a minute is not good!

    Before I packed it up to return it to OfficeMax, I ran this benchmark on my 5+ year old computer which has WIN98 and some seldom used USB 1.1 ports and it ran my benchmark on the Iomega 750 in 4 minutes or so, but not before hanging me twice. Not one to give up without a fight, I reinstalled my Iomega 250 USB 1.1 on the WINXP computer and the benchmark data ran at 4+ minutes. I was not at all surprised. By the way, since you asked, the benchmark ran in 1 min 25 secs on my PNY USB 2.0 Attache mini drive (NTFS, remember). Using that as a standard, the Iomega USB 750 should have run this benchmark in less than 2.5 mins ... if it did, I would have kept it.

    In summary, if your computer has WINXP SP1 and USB 2.0 ports, you are extremely likely to have the same miserable performance I've had. Please buy the product from a dealer who will take it back. And ... don't be beguiled by reviews that say it was really fast when they copied a single 120MB file in only 1.5 minutes or so. That might be true, but it's not the way we use computers.

    Thanks for your time.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very poorly documented greased lightning.
    This is one very fine removable disk drive. It records files at a terrifying rate. My only gripe with it is the documentation. I know I am an old coot who stopped learning a lot about computers when it became unnecessary to wrestle with DOS and BASIC, and I still like the comfort of a manual that can be read to settle one's nerves while putting a new toy to work. The instructions accompanying this fine piece of equipment is something Iomega should be mightily ashamed of. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Nothing beats a Zip drive for transporting large files or makingbackups, as it combines proven speed and reliability with the most widespreadcompatibility. In our tests, we found that this extremely versatile 250 MB USB-powered Zip drive makes it child's play to add this capability to your PC orMac. And its small, lightweight design makes an excellent travel companion,especially since it doesn't even need batteries or an external power source.

    The drive comes with detailed, easy-to-follow installation instructions, but youprobably won't even need them. Just run the setup program and plug the driveinto your USB port; your PC will automatically assign a drive letter to it andrecognize it as a removable disk drive. There aren't any jumpers or switches toset; in fact, the drive has only one button, which ejects the disk. Once it'sinstalled, you use it just like a floppy drive to save or copy files.

    Physically, the drive sports a very thin, light plastic case, measuring 169 by117 by 26 millimeters and weighing only 1.5 pounds. It draws all its power fromthe USB port, so there's no need for batteries or an external power supply. And,like any USB device, it's hot swappable: you can plug or unplug it withoutrestarting your computer. It can sit flat on a table or stand upright with theincluded plastic stand.

    Once we started playing with the USB-powered Zip 250, we immediately saw manysituations in which it would come in handy. For example, say you wanted to dosome work at home. You could easily copy the files to a Zip disk, take the drivehome with you, and then just plug it into your PC and be ready to go. Since it'scompatible with both PC and Macs, it's perfect for sharing files acrossoperating systems. And of course, its compact shape makes it ideal for taking onthe road.

    The drive performed well in both our read and write testing; we didn't encounterany glitches, and it took just a little over 2 minutes to copy 100 MB of MP3files to the drive. That's fast enough for most uses, and much faster than a Zipdrive hooked up to a standard parallel or serial port, but not as fast as aninternal IDE or SCSI Zip drive.

    Iomega includes some valuable backup utilities with the Zip drive, as well assome other useful applications. Iomega Backup lets you create and schedulecompressed backups of specific folders or entire drives. MusicMatch Jukebox isan excellent utility for ripping CDs and organizing your digital music files.And Adobe's ActiveShare offers a slick interface for manipulating photos andsharing them on the Web.

    The USB-powered 250 MB Zip drive offers an inexpensive and simple way to addremovable storage to your PC or Mac. Its slim, light design makes it absolutelyinvaluable for road warriors who needs to take their data with them. --KenFeinstein

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent choice for portable, removable storage
    The 250MB USB-Powered Zip drive is great for backing up personal data (obviously not entire hard drives) and, thanks to the easy portability, for transferring data between computers. This drive costs the same as the Zip 250 USB drive that draws power from an AC adapter instead of the USB bus, which is of course less convenient, but that other model has a couple of advantages: 1) it can be upgraded to a FireWire interface using a... adapter from Iomega, which Iomega says doubles the read spead over using the drive in USB mode; and 2) the AC-adapter-powered drive can be used with USB hubs operating in unpowered mode, while this USB-powered drive has to be used with a powered hub or a PC's built-in USB port. But I think that the convenience of the USB-powered model outweighs the disadvantages, especially if you travel a lot. The stand that allows the drive to be oriented vertically (see the photos) is a nice touch that saves desk space.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Neat, compact and easy to set up
    This zip drive is really slim and draws power from the USB CABLE - which is very cool for my laptop.

    Installation is a piece of cake - although the backup software by IOMEGA is a 30 day trial only !!

    One very neat future - software actually allows you disconnect the drive from the USB port on the computer every time you disconnect - re-connecting simply requires plug in.

    This way - you dont block a USB port on your machine. Accepts both 100MB and 250 MB disks - thank god !

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fast, convenient, and a bit sexy too!
    I fell in love with my internal 100 MB disk on my prior computer. My current computer was sold as a package on HSN for a tremendous price, but had not Zip drive. So, for the price, I went with this drive.

    The set-up on my XP machine was a snap. I just attached the included cable to the drive and my machine. Voila! Instant success. (Later, I realized that there was a set-up CD included. Everything works just fine, so I haven't bothered to use it.)

    For those of you, who like me, haven't been keeping up with the technolog, USB-Powered means just that. There is no separate power cable for which to find a plug. ALL that you do is to attach the drive to a USB port. And, oh yes, then you put a disk into the drive.

    Zip drives are aptly named. Copying files is a quick thing indeed. Quicken backups are so quick that I thought nothing had happened.

    I can't speak to how reliable this version of the zip drive would be. My prior drive never had a problem in five years. No backup was ever unreadable.

    In summary, the drive is consumer-friendly. It just gets assigned the next available drive letter by the system. You use it exactly as you use a diskette drive except there is no waiting around and no formatting. The drives come pre-formatted.

    And did I say that they're quick? Oh, I know, you're waiting for the "sexy" part. Well, just look at it. It fits in your hand and is . . . well, cute!

    There is just one warning. Have nothing in front of the drive when you eject the disk. It ejects less like a dampened CD drive than like a jet. The disk is spit out five-sixths of its length with a quite of bit of force. It may well harm the mechanism should it meet some resistance, but I haven't tried to find out. (They must have gotten a low bid on the eject mechanism from the same company that makes the ejection seat.)

    I think you'll like it. I've paid far more from tape drive back-ups that were far slower and no fun whatsoever.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Reliable and easy to use, but getting dated
    --We've used a Zip 250 for well over 2-1/2 years now and are on our 33rd disc, and can't think of a single technical problem with the drive. After reading the horror stories about other electronics gear on Amazon, I can't believe this has been such a troublefree device (when reading about burnable CD's, words like "frisbees" are often used, and software is often cursed, but I don't think we've ever lost a photo or a file with ours). We haven't dropped ours or sat on it, like some reviewers have with theirs, but we have covered over 20,000 bumpy miles in an RV and live in a dusty climate, and it's been as eay to set up, as easy to use, and as reliable as an anvil. We bought ours because we heard editing photos was easier than with a CD, and have not been disappointed.
    --Having said that, we may be switching over to a CD burner. For one thing, I'm not sure how long the format will last and I don't want to be stuck with a bin full of zip discs if our machine ever breaks. The discs are more expensive and more bulky than CD's, and it's tough to share files with a friend unless they have a zip, too. We won't be getting rid of our zip but will probably relegate it to editing photos.
    --I rate this product highly because of its simplicity and reliability, but be aware it is getting dated (it's hard to stay one step ahead of storage formats). It makes a very decent backup system for files and some photos, but if you have tons of photos, you may want a CD or DVD. Hope this helps.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Warning! Read the tech specs before you buy!
    This device's warranty is limited to one year. And mine stopped working properly shortly after one year from the purchase date. I asked a few other people from the university I am going to now who had this zip drive. They had encountered the device failure around a year or a little over a year as well. It was stupid of me for not reading the tech details. This zip drive's lifetime also depends on how many times you insert or remove a cartridge.

    Unless you are planning on throwing it away shortly after the warranty expires, purchase the internal zip drive. It's much faster and reliable. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Home User
    Boy am I sorry I ever bought this item. As mentioned by another user - it lasted less than 2 years - then it started to destroy any zip disk you attempted to write to. When I contacted customer service - instead of admitting they had a problem - I got - it sounds like maybe your drive is damaging your disks. You are out of warranty - but for $55.00 or so we will send you a reconditioned one with a 120 day warranty - and you pay for shipping. Forget it - save your money - buy a flash drive from Sony or use CDs - but don't buy anything from Iomega. They do not back their products - and their quality is highly questionable.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Defective design
    I own this drive for 2 years, but recently it broke my 5 diskes. I know anorther drive is with same problem.So basically it only last 1-2 years.You can buy a more space usb memory for same price.

    2-0 out of 5 stars I don't like it
    On my pentium 4 running windows XP, USB 1.1 connection it works only about 25% of the time.. There seems to some ZIP 100 mb disks that it will read reliably, but other ZIP 100 mb disks are not recognized. The age of the disks makes no difference.

    Another computer running win 98 with an internal zip drive reads all disk without problems.

    I have had to mark the disks that it will read and use only them in this drive.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Impressively fast.
    I got this drive to save on wasted CDs, which mount up, when loaded with lots of small incidentals. Not having used a ZIP drive before I was expecting something like a floppy disc performance on a larger scale, but was surprised at its almost hard drive read / write speed.

    It's also good not to have to lug another power unit around with my laptop, as is the negligible demand on system resources unlike that of some portable CD burners. The 100MB capacity may appear paltry by today's standards, yet is sufficient for the majority of instances. The 100MB media is also easier on the pocket.

    A disc can be electronically write protected, and read /write protected by using a password. This feature is not available for a CD unless the files are encrypted inside a .ZIP or some other kind of archive file, or an encrypted file, such as ABIcoder. So security is simplified with your ZIP drive.

    By plugging the ZIP drive into a USB port it will be recognised as a removable drive, that can be read and written to by dragging and dropping in the normal fashion. Any Iomega features will not be available, for which you have to install the Iomega software.

    My experience of this installation is as follows: When the installation is complete, choose the Reboot Later option, and manually restart your computer to finish. The Iomega auto option tends to hang the computer and things don't work out as expected. After re-booting, confirm - in windows - that the Send To drop down, displays the ZIP drive along with your floppy drive, etc. If not, the installation will need to be re-done.

    So far I've installed the Iomega software onto a laptop running Win 98 SE and two desktops. One of the desktops - a Win 2000 machine - didn't like it, and will need to be sorted out, since something has gone amiss with the services detection. It works okay after the alert times out, after a couple of minutes, but is irksome. The other desktop, also a Win 2000 machine, installed okay. The problematic machine has been through the wars, so why a problem arose is impossible to say at present. So... if the straightforward removable drive option is sufficient, stick with that: especially if it's someone else's machine your plugging into.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sweet
    I have owned this drive for almost one year and have had zero problems with it. Windows XP recognizes the device when you plug it in and you can use it immediately. 100mb is usually plenty of space for most things. I highly recommend this device! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great product, few nitpicks
    I did not buy this on Amazon but instead found it for $130 on another website. Unfortunately, I don't have USB 2.0, but the unit works fine and speedier than I expected on my USB 1.1. The only problems I had with this are the extremely bright blue led light that can get very annoying if it's in your line of site (i.e. if you use it with a laptop like me), and the slightly imperfect connections for the USB and power (the USB was a little difficult to get all the way in and the power felt a little loose). Otherwise it's a solid, quiet product that deserves the four stars I gave it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't trust this product with your data!!!
    This is the second product from Iomega that I have had problems with. I know, you think I would have learned the first time. I got this product yesterday. It installed fine. I backed up my files, installed Norton Ghost and created a .gho copy of my entire system. That took 12 hours. When it finished I shut down the computer and powered off the HDD. This morning when I started everything back up, guess what? No HDD. I have spent all day troubleshooting to no avail. Finally broke down and called Tech Support (toll call). After 5 minutes of speaking with me, mostly asking me my name, etc... they said, ok we will send you a new one. Unbelievable! No help, no ideas, no nothing. Just "we'll replace it". Obviously they are used to their products having problems. Then guess what? They are out of stock. They won't take it back because I bought it from Amazon. I got a little upset and so they transferred me to the sales department, saying that the sales department had a special return policy since I bought it online. The sales department had no idea what I was talking about. They offered to transfer me back to tech support and I told them to forget it. That is the last time I buy something from this company. You would think that if the only thing you do is produce and sell storage devices you could at least get it right. And if you didn't, you could try to offer some satisfaction to those that are extremely inconvenienced by your shortcomings. Unreal. Now basically I am out the $170. This HDD has all my personal data on it - it's not something I want to send back to Amazon without being able to clear out. I would really think twice, no I guess that would be three times before buying ANYTHING from Iomega!

    PS - Did I mention the files I moved on to the HDD as an archieve? Won't ever see those again....

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great product. with simple to follow backup software
    I highly recommend this product. I used the firewire connector and had everything set up in a few minutes. I use it to back up everything important; documents, e-mails, music, photos, videos, downloads, etc. The hard drive works flawlessly, and the Iomega Automatic Backup software is very simple to use. Just choose directories to back up then select backup methods (i.e., after files are changed, on a fixed schedule, etc.). This product also comes with Norton Ghost which I did not install. One nit-pick: the firewire cable inclued is only 3 ft. I needed 6 ft. and had to buy a replacement (6pin to 6pin, and they're not exactly cheap).

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good performance, ample storage.
    The Iomega HDD 120GB offers solid performance and a great bundle, and would be suitable for multimedia developers, those in the graphics, video or audio industries, power users, or simply anyone who needs to move a lot of data around quickly.

    In my testing, I copied 10GB of files and folders from a PC to the drive in 8 min 1 sec.

    The drive weighs in at about 820g (1.8lbs) though, so it may not be something you want to haul around all the time - but to be fair, Iomega does advertise these as "desktop hard drives."

    If you want truly portable external storage products, Iomega also offers a range of lighter products that utilise notebook hard disks.

    Pros: Fast; quiet; lots of extras.

    Cons: Slightly expensive. ... Read more
