ProVery Fast, Efficient, Stylish, Easy Installation

ConsOnly a minor point the 1m usb cable

I needed a fast and efficient external hard drive for doing full and incremental backups of my networked computer systems. I did a bit of research first before deciding on this Iomega product. It costs £58.95 from ebuyer with £10 (£48.95)off for using google checkout and at only 18p per GB you...

ProStylish, very easy to install, quiet, effective

ConsNone

I needed an external drive to provide a secure back up for my PC - previously reliant on memory sticks, and looked around for good deals on reputable products/suppliers. Found this drive on the Comet site and reserved to collect in store for £59.99 rather than list price at £69.99 - seemed a good...

It really is plug and play. No installation activity other than plug in the power lead and then the USB leads and it's fully operational. (Comet offer to charge £15 to do that for you!). Performance is just fine - I use it as a backup drive via Norton Ghost. It's a tad noisy (from the fan, I think), but for me, as it's only turned on while back-ups are in process, that's not a problem.

Consnone that i have found

Loved the fact that you can just plug it and then use it straight away. Extremly quiet and looks nice. Handy little stand comes with it so can be vertical or horizontal. It is very stylish, silver and not too big that you cant take it around with you. Thought i would have to pay a lot for this...

Not for me

published 13/05/2008

A few month after purchase, power LED kept going off by itself and the disk would stop responding to read/write. Many of my files are now inaccessible and the drive refuses to allow the computer to scan or format it (the progress bar will remain on 0%25 indefinitely). The drive makes some very worrying clunking noises and keeps restarting. Worst of all, their tech support (as of this time) have completely ignored my email and request for a replacement (despite it being under warranty). You gets what ya pays for I suppose - if you go for the cheap-ass budget products, expect shite. I'll never be buying anything from Iomega again.
