Pros

Quiet and cool running drive that only requires 1 USB port unlike some external drives

1 agrees

Security software is a good idea with 128-bit AES encryption, despite the flaws

1 agrees

Good materials and construction, the metal casing is much better than the plastic ones used in their standard external hdd range

Cons

The backup software is also slow in many areas including the actual backup function

1 agrees

Retrospec backup software should be configured as a removable back up, otherwise the entire capacity of the drive will be used up

1 agrees

Customer support is lacking, with limited work hours

1 agrees

Security implementation is somewhat flawed and unintuitive, a fix has been promised by iomega

Iomega eGo Encrypt Plus is a portable hard drive with encryption built in to ensure that data is as secure as possible. The NIST and CSE certified AES CBC 256-bit encryption works directly through the hardware and requires no external software, keeping encryption fast to improve performance while ensuring that the contained data is as safe as possible. Both user and administration level passwords can be created to enable partial access to the contents, and an Administrator Role Authentication and management utility is pre-loaded. Drop Guard Xtreme ensures that the drive can be dropped from up to 7 feet without losing data, and a Power Grip band is included to make it easier to carry without slipping. The size of the drive is small enough to fit into a briefcase or laptop bag.
