        I partitioned this drive and formatted it for a Msc, and use one partition as the time machine drive and the other for miscellaneous copies and storage. It works perfectly. I appreciate the on/off switch so that I can shut it off before unplugging it.

        Comments about 1TB eGo Jet Black Desktop Hard Drive:

        I use this external backup drive to back up my vital work files. It is faster than the other drives I have tried and very easy to use. I don't use any special software, just Windows copy and paste function. I reformatted the drive as soon as I received it because I read that doing so best prevents drive crashes in the future (shipping misaligns the heads). I have only used it for a few days so I can't vouch for its reliability or longevity, which is why I did not give it 5 stars yet. However, my research found Iomega rated above most competitors for reliability and so far it hasn't disappointed. Only two negatives so far: one, its stick-on type of plastic feet fall off easily. Two: there is no light in the front to indicate when it is copying or even turned on, so I faced the back with its light towards me. No big deal except now I have the wires jutting out into my workspace instead of hidden behind the unit.

              Very easy to set up and use. No problems taking all of my pics, docs, & music that were cluttering up my desktop and laptop and putting them into the eGo, drag & drop...! Forced me into organizing everything a little better. Great price, fast service, and really couldn't be happier.

                    I do multi cam recording on some projects with schools, churches and sports activities, and the eGo 1TB hard drive is absolutely a big plus. Before I'd be bombarded with labeling tapes and batch capturing. I use 3 PD-170s for my projects. By connecting the 1TB eGo to my laptop with Adobe On Location installed, I can work on my projects in a flash. Cuts my post production time in more than half.

                      Just got it and reformatted it for Mac. Did our first backup on Time Machine and it seems to be working fine.

                      The only thing is the step-by-step reformatting instructions left out one click in applying the settings, which I guess is pretty obvious.

                          I plugged this into an HP running Windows 7 and it was recognized immediately, installed and ready to use in under 30 seconds. I knew it came with a backup software suite, but I was unaware that it also came with a 1 year subscription to Trend Micro Internet Security. So, even though the price was great without the software or antivirus, it was even better with it. Highly recommended.

                          I bought this desktop hard drive to back up my photos, videos and music. I don't plan to download any of the trial programs and am not doing scheduled backups--only occasional ones. This hard drive is just what I found in reviews--not really fast but not extremely slow either. It plugged and played in my XP Pro desktop and my vista Home Prem. laptop. I was able to exchange photos between the computers. [...] I LOVE the color. It stands up in the holder or lays flat so is very easily put anywhere. The reviews are correct that the USB and the power cords are a bit too short, but it's so small it can go most anywhere so that's not a problem for me. I'm glad I got it[...]

                                    No problems -time will be the test as to whether these units will hold up - good price, I bought two to use as long term off-line storage.

                                      Just plugged in the USB connector and was up and running. Easy to schedule backups - first one took 4 hours for an 80 GB drive, second time less than 2 hours.

                                              The drive is used for weekly backups. It was super easy to install, just plug and play. The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't shut down when the system shuts down. You have to manually turn it off.

                                              I purchased this product as a Christmas gift to my parents. They had been experiencing storage space on their home computer and I said they needed to get an external drive to free up some internal drive space. When I showed them how to use it they couldn't believe how easy it was. Plug it in and start copying files.

                                              Among the ease of installation, the price was great.
