Iomega eGo 2TB2/3/2011
I bought this drive 2 months back to run backups and Time Machine for my Mac. The drive looks nice and gels well with my Mac. This runs very quiet and fast. Comes with great connecting options like USB and FireWire. The setup was a breeze. I plugged it in and it worked. If you own a Mac and are looking for a FireWire drive for it, this is it.

I bought this 2 TB drive for the Time Machine on my Mac. The design of this eGo drive is simple and elegant. Similar to its looks, the drive is simple to use too. Installation and initializing this drive to Mac machines was very easy. The thing that I like the most in this is it runs so quiet that we hardly get to know its presence. Transfer rate is commendable. I love to use these kind of simple drives.
This drive looks really nice and matches my MacBook Pro aesthetically. It also worked seamlessly out of the box. Its sleek design is attractive for a desktop. Function wise, I rarely use USB, but it's nice that its there incase. I have used both the FW400 and FW800, transfer rate is commendable. So far everything looks and works great. The drive is also quiet and setup is a breeze. It has a 3 year warranty and that is a plus.
