I’ve been looking for a good backup solution for a long time. I wanted a drive that I could do nightly backups of my primary system and project drives. I finally settled with this Iomega 400GB triple interface drive, and I couldn’t be happier with it.
I first learned about the drive in the December, 2005 issue of Macworld magazine. They compared 30 firewire drives and gave this Iomega drive their “top pick”, for price and performance. I couldn’t agree more.
The drive is ultra quiet (I hate noisy drives). I have it connected to my G5 tower via Firewire 800, and it is extremely fast. One other nice feature is it’s “soft” power switch. I can turn it off at night, and when I boot up my computer in the morning, it automatically turns itself on so I don’t have to worry about it.
If you are looking for quiet, reliable, and fast drive, I highly recommend this one.
