The Iomega UltraMax desktop hard drive offers 1 TB of extra space to your computer or network, with an impressive array of performance and security features. With its triple interface, the UltraMax can be connected to any computer equipped with FireWire 800, FireWire 400, or high-speed USB 2.0, delivering transfer rates of up to 800Mbps. The unit features HFS+, which gives it native compatibility with Mac computers.

Choose between RAID 0 (RAID striping), RAID 1 (RAID mirroring), and JBOD (no RAID). RAID striping gives you faster storage and recall; RAID mirroring duplicates what you store on one drive, to the other, so you always have 2 copies. JBOD lets the drives function virtually as one drive. You choose your perfect balance between redundancy and capacity.

Stackable design lets you neatly store as many drives as you need on your desktop. With EMC Retrospect Express software, you'll have professional backup and disaster recovery tools at your disposal. The UltraMax secures your most data-intensive projects and allows reliable recovery in case of a failure. Your data will always be just a click away, and protected in case or emergency.

good casing, bad PSU 9/3/2013 10:59:44 PM

Pros: -Solid Metal case
-USB 2.0 Hub on the back
-FireWire 800
-multiselect Raid Levels by switch not by software
-RAID 0,1, Span, SIngle disk modes
-comes with 2x500GB Seagate sata hard drives.

Cons: -Power supply died after 3 months of use, (-egg)
-units can fail without warning taking your data with them
-Iomega is a pain to deal with, (-egg) even with the warranty

Overall Review: Ok these units work until they dont, what you need to do is set the unit to single (non raid) mode and then setup a software raid with your OS using the 2 single drives, this way if any part of the unit fails (Drive, Case, or PSU) you can remove the drives and easily recovery your data,
-Using RAID 0 with FireWire 800 I got around 65 MBps write and 80 MBps Read, but I was using a PCI FW 800 card which are not the fastest units available
-RAID IS NOT A BACKUP, keep a real backup else ware,

Exactly what I was looking for 1/5/2008 1:30:11 PM

Pros: Pre-formatted HFS+! Rock solid. Fast. You can plug it in over both Firewire+USB2 @the same time to utilize it's USB hub (restart may be required for this in some OS's). Plenty of ports on the back for expansion. Using this for TimeMachine & safe external storage for a production workstation and it's great. Planning to buy another soon.

Cons: Advertised size is for RAID0 (combined capacity of both internal drives). Remember to buy double the size you need if you plan to use it in RAID1.

Overall Review: Not as loud as others make it out to be, but it is noticeable in a quiet area while spinning up. Remember it's 2 drives, not one. Leopard is really good about spinning drives down when not in use. The next one I get, i'll take apart and see if the drives can be replaced with larger aftermarket sizes as the cost per GB starts to get unreasonable beyond the 1TB unit.

Please avoid 9/2/2007 5:14:06 PM

Pros: At this point none

Cons: Disc image mounted on my powermac on day one. Tried to backup up my first set of data during the first week, cound not find or mount disc image. Went through all the troubleshooting steps.My older 160mg LaCie continued to mount without any problems.

Overall Review: I keep on hearing about the need to backup your backup hard drive, because they are all inherently prone to die, but come on---within a week?? THis is a holiday weekend so I will have to wait till tuesday to get some on line help.

NoisyMax 7/31/2007 7:29:19 PM

Pros: Fast transfer rates with USB 2 averaging close to 500Kbps on large transfers. Great price good customer support and the dependability of Iomega.

Cons: Targeted to Mac users from design to file setup. Has to be formatted to work with a pc. By far the biggest issue is the NOISE. I have a 600GB LaCie big disk, a 750GB Seagate and the 1TB Ultramax all on my desk. The only one I've had to add sound shielding to is the UltraMax. It is loud enough to be a distraction and has had to be moved to the floor in a sound shielded vented box in order to be as unobtrusive as the others. Of them all Seagate makes the quietest external drives.

Overall Review: Due to the noise and short warranty I would recommend looking at Seagate products unless you really need this much room. I do and for the money right now this is the best on the market.
