Pleased with my buy1/25/2011
I have been using this drive for more than 6 months for Time Machine and Music Storage. I basically removed this drive from the box and plugged it in and it was ready to use. My iMac found it immediately. I am now connected with Firewire 800 and the performance is awesome. I copied 100GBs of Music in just less than 60 minutes. The fan isn't really that loud. Very pleased.
Just the right one for Mac11/2/2010
I have a Mac Pro. I keep to FW 800 for ultramax. It is easy to configure and I use it for RAID 1. Strong architecture and easy usability are what I find in it to be most appealing.
Great for RAID8/31/2010
I’m using it exclusively for RAID purposes. Works great.
Excellent Drive Array8/21/2009
I just received my iomega drive yesterday. I am using it to replace two 250GB USB 2.0 drives that I was using for Time Machine and Music Storage. I am now connected with Firewire 800 and the performance is awesome. I copied 100GBs of Music in just under 50 minutes. Setup is super easy. The fan isn't really that loud. Standard I think for a two drive array. I configured mine with RAID 1. I am even considering picking up a second one to piggy back onto the current one. Very pleased.
2 TB at home?!? And a GREAT price5/23/2009
I have an iMac and am using FireWire 800. I basically removed this drive from the box and plugged it in... And I was ready to go. My iMac found it immediately and I changed my auto backups to this drive and I was off and running. Connected this way it's super fast. My only complaint about this drive, is the fan run constantly. You can hear the hard drives go into to sleep but yet the fan never stops. This is a little noisy, I've contacted Iomega (May 7, 2009) to find out how much power the fan is using while the drives are asleep but no response yet - it's been over 2 weeks. As we all start to think Greener, I think Iomega didn't get that memo... So I eject the drive and power it off when I'm not using it.
