              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.

                      Comments about Iomega 1TB eGo Midnight Blue Desktop Hard Drive:

                      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[...]

                                      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.

                                            Our installation used "Greeen" internal hard drives in a separate case for portable backup. The green drives (have about the same power consumption) only work for a short time and then fail from bad sectors.The Iomega installed easily since it only needed plugged in and special formatting. A good product[...].

                                              Out of the box, it works. Just hooked it up and bang, it was up and running. The only impedance was getting my Mac to read/write to the NTFS formatted drive. It could see it and read the contents, just couldn't save files to it.Have no fear: NTFS-3G [...] worked like a charm. Just download and install on your Mac. Connect the drive and bang, it now worked!It is unbelievably quiet and has a nice little activity light on the side. The one I have is a bright blue. Beautiful on the desktop, but does seem to scuff easy. But this baby takes the data and keeps on taking it. Seems to be no end in sight. Never knew how much storage 1TB was till now.So far so good, only been a few weeks and have consolidated my various other drives to this one. I feel confident that it will last. No issues so far. My only wish is that you could find a hybrid firewire/usb drive for the same price. Now that would be fantastic!

                                                  I have this hooked up to my personal computer and use it with an automatic backup. Works like a charm!Only downer is that the usb cord is too short and had to place this on my desk, but it is so quiet I forget it's even there
