Iomega eGo Mac Edition 320 GB Portable External Hard Drive – Bottom Line:

This drive is sleek and stylish. It comes in various colors depending upon the size of the hard drive.

People really like the speed of this drive. You can back up your laptop drive in no time! The case being aluminum can be slippery if you are not careful. Additionally people have said that they don’t know when it is powered on or off and there is no control for this. The simple resolution is to simply unplug it from the computer. This will power it off.

The ability to switch between USB and Firewire is a very attractive feature on the Iomega eGo Mac Edition 320 GB Portable External Hard Drive. If you have a fire-wire port, this is the way to go as it is much faster than USB. If you own a Mac Air, be careful as you may not have the fire-wire port to accommodate this drive.

There have been reports of the case becoming detached. Not everyone suffers this, so we suspect that these are isolated problems.

With this drive you get a great aluminum design and multiple connections too! With one FireWire 800 port, one FireWire 400 port, and one USB 2.0 port, the Iomega eGo Portable Hard Drive offers triple interface versatility for Mac users and a stylish design. These drives are formatted HFS+ for a great out-of-box experience. Plus, the Iomega Drop Guard feature protects the drive when dropped up to 51″ (40% above the industry average!). EMC Retrospect, QuikProtect, and MozyHome Online backup software is included with purchase. Available in Ruby Red, Alpine White and Midnight Blue in up to 500GB capacity (capacities vary per color).

In summary, this is a great little drive for backing up your Mac. It is sleek, quick, quiet, and attractive. Essentially everything you want in a portable hard drive. You are likely to love the Iomega eGo Mac Edition 320 GB Portable External Hard Drive and forget the days before you had it.
