Customer Reviews of Imation USB Apollo Hard Drive 250GB
An outstanding portable HD3/11/2009
I had this Imation Apollo portable HD for about three weeks. I use it everyday. For $60 (on sale) it is second to nothing! This Imation easily beats other two external HDs I own. Pro: small size, HIGH QUALITY on furnished surface and comes with a stylish case, easy operation just a USB-A to mini USB 5-pin cable, no AC power cable needed, data transfers relatively fast, does not get too hot. Con: I am still searching for one... The two-USB-cable power issue mentioned on other reviews never happen to me. I am using the USB cable from a digital camera and it works seamlessly.
Serves its purpose well3/11/2009
I recently bought a new computer and debated over how to transfer my files - bought this drive and was amazed at the simplicity and speed in which I was able to transfer. Using it now to backup my new computer.
Great little drive3/10/2009
I bought this drive on sale, and it has been great since I received it. I do IT work, so it has worked great as a backup for client systems for system migration, and it is nice for my own personal use as well. The only problem I've run into is that the dual usb cord doesn't seem to get enough power through the front usb ports on many systems, so I have to plug it directly into the motherboard in the back of the system. Overall, a handy little tool for me.
This thing keeps me from having to lug a computer around every where I go. Plug and Play is no problem. The only down side, if this is really one, is the cable that comes with it has 2 usb plugs, one for data and one for power (if the usb port does not supply enough)This makes the cable a bit bulky, but the case has a nice way of storing it. I'm glad I got it.
Big little hard drive....3/7/2009
This external hard drive is deffintely plug and play. I have room to put my photo album, ipod library, or anything else that I want to bring with me on the spur of the moment. Backing up my Mac is a breeze. And the value is awsome. This drive is a tad larger than my iPod, looks nice and sleek in black and chrome, and it is ready for the road. I rate it excellent....
Nice little drive3/4/2009
Nice, simple, straightforward external drive. Nothing fancy, with is how I like it. The bundled software works very well, and the backups it creates can be accessed right in windows, which I prefer.

It works great3/4/2009
It works every time it is plugged to the USB port of my notebook running VISTA. The hard drive itself is a SATA drive and is fast.
