I use a mac, and the 3.0 usb of this drive is perfect for it. The transfer speed seems like it has increased 10 times of the usual. But if you don’t have the 3.0 fittings in your pc, you can very well use the usb2.0. Else you can use the 3.0 external adapters of iomega. I have always worried of my data getting corrupted, that’s why I generally make a backup somewhere. But this again becomes very tiring as my files keep increasing. But with this device I got AES 256-bit hardware encryption for security purposes…and I have had a breather as far as the security of my data is concerned. Plus the storage capacity is pretty viable.
