I had a 100-mb zip drive that looked different (sort of boxy looking, slightly bigger and it could stand on its side or sit flat) than this one I just ordered, slightly smaller, sleeker, but can only lie flat (no way to have it stand in narrow spaces by itself). The old drive wasn't reliable at times, then it just up and quit on me. It's probably due to the fact that it used a parallel port instead of the USB that I went for. Anyway, I hope the new one is much more reliable, and it has been so far. Its USB port, which I like a whole lot better than the big old dinosauresque parallel ports, makes it easy to hook up and use right away. Sits flat nicely without using up too much space. I wish it could stand on its side but I'm okay with that. This new product has been good to me and I'd recommend it. Hopefully it lasts much longer than my old one and it's nice to have extra storage capabilities again.

Iomega Customer Service Poor

by Michael A Duchesneau, MD on 7/2/2007

Unit was dead out of the box, and Iomega has carefully insulated themselves from receiving calls from customers. Documentation says not to contact seller with problems, but to only deal with manufacturer. When I finally did get a live person, I was told "we don't publicize our phone number; that's how we keep our prices low." This is an absolutely unacceptable way to treat customers. After getting through two levels of bureaucracy and supervision, I finally got someone to agree to "expedite" an advance replacement, but it was still shipped via ground, despite promises it would be sent by air. I'm hoping I never have to deal with Iomega again, as I certainly don't intend to buy anything else from them.
