1 out of 5 eggsIomega eGo 3TB problems

Pros: Newegg customer service (the only reason this product receives 1 Egg). The drive arrived on time as promised, when I had problems Newegg CS issued a RMA for credit and made that process painless.

Cons: I purchased this drive to use a portable and for system backup. I setup the drive following the scant instructions and received a 'problem installing driver' error from Windows 7/64. I tried moving the drive to other USB3 ports and finally to USB2 ports. Same problem. Windows would see the free portion of the drive but could not see the Virtual CD portion of the drive. All of MB drivers are current and I do not have a problem using the USB ports with other devices. An on-line chat with Iomega did not provide any solution. After the third chat failed to solve the problem, I was asked to call Tech Support. I declined, that costs $25.00 per call. I was promised a fix via e-mail and have not received that yet. Returning the drive for credit and ordered a WD drive.

PS. Iomega had me download Encryption software to see the Virtual drive. After having to give Name, Address, Phone Numbers and create an online account I was allowed to download and install tthe software. That was no help.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend Iomega if your looking for technical help with their products.

5 out of 5 eggsFollow-up on iomega 3TB HD purchase

Pros: I posted comments on this drive just over 6 months ago and thought perspective buyers would like to know how the drive has performed for me since then.

The iomega 3TB USB drive continues to perform like a champ without any problems, glitches, or missteps.

This drive is now operating as the main drive outside of my ½TB internal drive.

Cons: I cannot identify any "Cons" to-date. A minor exception might be that the drive does get a little warm after continuous use (4+ hours).

The heat generated does not impact drive speed or performance and the unit does not get so hot that it would be a concern.

Beyond this, I cannot think of anything to complain about it.

Other Thoughts: As Tech Support commented above, the drive cannot be formatted in FAT-32 due to the nature of FAT-32 restrictions. However, No difficulties exist that would preclude formatting in EX_FAT-32 or NTFS.

As stated previously above, I play .avi videos through the USB port on my DVD players using external HDs. This unit is not compatible for this purpose. I use 2TB external HDs formatted as FAT-32 for that purpose and they all work great regardless of the HD brand.

5 out of 5 eggsIomega 3TB 3.0 External eGo HD

Pros: The drive is "simplicity" itself to set up. Plug in the power supply, plug in the USB cable and away you go! Significantly faster than my other 2.0 USB external drives even though it's connected to a 2.0 USB port. I suspect it would be a real "screamer" if connected to a 3.0 USB port. It runs nice and cool. Solid construction, good support stand, typical Iomega operation light to monitor HD operations. Now I'm just waiting for a 4TB eGo HD to come on the scene.

Cons: Drive can be formatted in NTFS and exFAT-32 but I can't get it to format as a straight FAT32 even when using Iomega FAT32 formatting software. I format some of these drives with FAT32 because the DVD players I have with USB ports will only work with drives formatted in FAT32. And yes, I have 2TB Iomega drives connected to the USB ports on my DVD players to play my .avi videos. They work great!

Other Thoughts: I own several Iomega and Fantom external drives in different sizes. I picked this unit up to replace the 1TB units I had connected to my laptop. At one point, I had five (5) external HDs connected to the laptop through the USB ports and USB extension units. I needed to consolidate. Now one drive replaces three drives. The actual drive comes up as an Hitachi brand drive. The drive is also a single drive, not two drives "piggy backed" like certain "Fantom" brand drives. Iomega does make a 4TB "piggy backed" external drive. Avoid it! Wait until the single 4TB drives come out.

Manufacturer Response:

Thanks for your review - we just wanted to clarify one thing about FAT32 and very high capacity hard disks. Unfortunately, FAT32 cannot handle volumes larger than 2TB. This is a FAT32 limitation, by design (because system tasks become inefficient and slow on a very large FAT32 file system). Unfortunately, we can't resolve this problem in our format utility. There are more details on our website:
How do I format my Iomega Hard Drive with the Iomega FAT32 Formatter?
Hope this helps clear things up!
