Iomega Hits A Home Run!
The rubber jacket that they put on the drive not only looks cool, but really protects the corners well. My son has dragged it off the desk forgetting that it was connected to his laptop a bunch of times, so it's hit the linoleum hard a number of times. It always works fine afterword, no chips to the plastic or damage to the drive. I also like the rubber because it grips the surface you set it on. No sliding around as you move the mouse or any other cable brushes up against it. I really like the simple USB hook-up and quick recognition. This is one of the true "plug-and-play" pieces of hardware that everything used to be like. Nothing to install, just get busy. I appreciate that. It does come with a back-up program, but I've never used it as this was just extra storage of games, files, etc. The one down-side I have is that the "carry case" that came with it was so cheesy that it ripped the second time my son slid the drive into it. We threw it away and do without until I can find a cheap zippered one. Yeah, that case really sucked. Overall, I have to say that this was one of the best buys I have made regarding an electronic device.Read full review
Easy to use and no need for an elect. power source
This external hard drive is so easy to use. It is great that it does not have a power source. When it arrive I hooked it up to my computer and downloaded tons of pictures and home movies without any problems. This was such a great purchase.
I ordered one to keep a seperate "just in case" copy of all my files. I also used it to transfer all my digital info to my new computer!! Great value
