1 out of 5 eggsDied completely - lost all data on it!

Pros: The case is shiney

Cons: Any nice features Iomega advertises for this drive counts for naught if it dies - which it did. Lasted barely six months of light usage, then suddenly refuses to work at all. No warning; you just can't use it anymore and the data is gone. What is it -- is USB 3.0 inherently flaky, or is it Iomega? Of three USB 3.0 Iomega drives I've bought, now all three have died. And Iomega's support is pretty aweful - on their chatline they're uninformed, and simply direct me to their paid "Data Recovery Service", which says in it's fine print that it starts at $900. !

Other Thoughts: Iomega was a good drive vendor, it seemed, once upon a time. Today, they're a vendor to avoid like the plague!

5 out of 5 eggsSatisfaction

Pros: Great Drive! I was looking for high storage and little power needs and absolutely no outlet power (there is a fine balance). I needed something portable and light and something I could pop into front usb ports and avoid any "low power" warnings. This drive did it all (so far). It's blazin fast (providing you have usb 3.0), small, and light. I use it for extremely intensive and constant backups of data and it also performs perfectly for video editing work even while working straight from the drive if needed.

Cons: No complaints yet.

Other Thoughts: I would like more storage without external power because I'm greedy for terabytes! I'm sure usb 3.0 will eventually allow such things. This drive was an upgrade from my Lacie Rugged drive and I'm much more satisfied with this than that Lacie drive, which I had very bad experiences with.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the money.

Pros: Now this is worth the money. USB 3.0 is truly fast..
It was transferring data at average 75mb. Even on USB 2.0 it was getting mid 20s. The design is amazing and its small. the drive itself and the usb ports are very sturdy. I would recommend this item to all. I bought a Eagle tech version of USB 3.0 before this and returned because that one sucked.

Cons: the USB cable included is about 2FT long. Wish it was longer.

Other Thoughts: Fantastic item
