Customer Reviews of Iomega 500GB Prestige Desktop USB 2.0 External Hard Drive
Works fine for me5/24/2010
I have two of these Iomega external drives. They are connected to my Dish Network HD receivers. They record and playback my movies with no problems. Occasionally one will turn off (no blue light) which requires me to power off both the drive and receiver, but not very often. If that's my biggest problem, I'm fine with that! About to order me another one so I can store shows just for my kids on it!
after going through three Western Digital drives, which are now bricks, I decided to return to Iomega, which seems to talk to Macs better. this was easy to set up, and remains reliable. good price.
YOU CAN RELY ON IOMEGA3/31/2009
They to me are like HP printers. Reliable. Iomega made the best zip drives, that are very functional, and lasts for years with no problems. Forget the fancy stuff. This one very easily stores your files and is attractive looking. (Smaller than i thought). Times are tough and i feel so much better I have it.
This is a really great value and a really great product. It's very easy to use even for the technically challenged like me. Arrived quickly and in good condition. No complaints here.
Great value for 500GB1/26/2009
The price was excellent for Iomega - although I chose the cheapest shipping, it still came in 3 days - excellent dealer. It had automatic backup and I like the look. I'm just very pleased with it, as I have been with everything I've ordered from Buy.com. You just get more for your money and can order with confidence!
Extremely Pleased with this Purchase1/4/2009
I purchased this product for three reasons: (1) Iomega is an excellent brand of hard drives; (2) the online price was very low; and (3) in my experience, Buy.com provides excellent service. The hard drive arrived less than 24 hours from buying the product online (economy shipping!). It arrived in excellent condition, installed with no effort, and has been working perfectly ever since. I couldn't be happier with the Iomega hard drive and Buy.com.
piece of junk!!!12/24/2008
hard drive failure after one week!!! Does Iomega have QA at all???????
Works right out of the box12/18/2008
After unpacking, I immediatley set out to transfer 47Gb worth of files, which took a little while, but it went without a hickup. With such a huge capacity it'll take years to fill it all up. The wall transformer is a switching power supply type which stays totally cool when it remains plugged-in 24/7 and the drive is not in use. Great product, thank you Buycom.
Fantastic HD Storage12/6/2008
Best price I have found for this type of portable hd. It truly is plug and play, no muss no fuss. Just plug it in and it takes off.
very happy with this product12/5/2008
Works great, easy to install & use. The Retrospect backup software was an unexpected bonus. It makes backup & storage easy & convenient.
Works as advertised12/1/2008
Easy to set up - just plug it in. I'm using this drive for back up purposes. I've not used the software which comes with it, prefering image backup instead. I've had no problems with the drive
Could not love it more10/15/2008
Sleek, light, powerful, plug-and-play...what more do you want? Worth geeking out over.
Works great !10/15/2008
This is a great product and works with no hassels.
Great little HD9/8/2008
Easy to set up and use, and the EMC Retrospect back up client that's offered free with the HD make this a no brainer to buy. Good value, delivered promptly
