Cons

Performance is below average compared to devices from Seagate and LaCie, but buyers should keep in mind that the Iomega model is the cheapest of the bunch

1 agrees

FAT32 format means that certain large files will not be copied on to the drive, Windows only users should reformat the drive to NTFS

1 agrees

Included CD isn't particularly helpful, only includes a generic user manual that covers multiple models

The Iomega Desktop Hard Drive is an economical option for extra storage.  It comes preformatted and setup for plug and play so it is ready to right out of the box.  The Iomega Desktop hard drive comes with 360 GB capacity.  This translates into 1,440,00 photos, 5,920 songs, or 480 videos. The Iomega Desktop Hard Drives are preformatted with FAT32, so those wanting to store extremly large files, such as extensive high graphic movies or computer games, may need to reformat to the NTFS file system.  The hard drives do not work with older machines -- they require at least a Pentium II class processor or higher for PCs and at least Mac OS X 10.3 for Macs.  The Iomega Desktop Hard Drives come with a one-year limited warrenty.
