          Comments about Iomega 1TB Helium USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive:

          I ended up trying a few portable hard drives for my MacBook Air. I ended up going with the Helium. It lacks the faster connections of other models, but it is compact, reasonably light, solid, and matches the MacBook Air very nicely. The USB connector on the drive could be better as the cable does not fit in as firm as I'd like.

            This little guy is great. Extremely portable and worked immediately with MAC OSx Lion. First backup with be EXTREMELY slow so just set it overnight would be my suggestion. Otherwise. Love it!

              I used it at first to backup my whole computer, took about 2 hours for 500 GB, It didn't warm up much. It's a very comfortable (really portable) size EHDD, simple design, same colour as a Macbook Pro's Unibody.
