"Defective design!"1.5 starson by pinkpapillon45
Pros: It's pretty, the drive seemed to work OK, and of course the FW 800 is lightning fast.
Cons: The stupid thing gets HOT and when it does, the front plate begins to detach. Sure, you can keep pressing it down and attempting to reattach it, but the minute it warms up again, it pops up!
Summary: Spend the extra few dollars to get either the Western Digital "My Passport" or the LaCie rugged drive. Until IOmega resolves this fatal design flaw, I can never recommend this drive to anyone! Not to mention, IOmega provides almost ZERO support for their product, they give you scripted answers in their support chat and send you a form for you to send the drive back and wait 2-4 weeks for them to send a replacement. Boo!
