4 out of 5 eggsGood and Bad

Pros: Pre-formatted for Mac OS.
Large capacity.
Dual Firewire ports and daisy-chainable.
Will spin down and standby if OS supports it (Mac OS X does).
Seems to run cool.
Looks great.

Cons: The ON/OFF push button on the back of the drive is absolutely horrible. It'll "catch" inside the case when pushed in and takes some careful fiddling to get it to pop back out. Not a show-stopper... unless you need to turn the drive off and on a lot (thankfully I don't). Since my drive is over a year old, it could be iOmega has fixed this problem with more recent production lots.

Other Thoughts: I've been using this drive continuously with a MacBook Pro for over a year now and haven't had any problems except for the annoying ON/OFF push button mentioned under "cons." I have mine partitioned into two 1Tb drives, one to store videos and one in use as a Time Machine backup. I have another portable external Firewire hard drive daisy-chained to it for nightly SuperDuper backups.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, Gyropilot,
Thanks for the feedback on the power button on the eGo Mac Edition desktop hard drive. I'll pass your suggestion on to our Quality team and to our development teams.
