Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This iomega Helium 1tb drive is a solid piece of gear. It feels like a brick of solid aluminum. The design is clean and uncluttered, like most stuff made by Apple, so it matches MacBook Pro unibody laptops really well. It's also one of the fastest USB 2.0 drives out there. Some people slam USB 2.0 drives that use the Mini-B plugs, rather than the newer, smaller Micro USB. But I'll tell you something...the USB Mini-B plugs provide a much more secure connection than the Micros. Micro USB plugs just feel loose and sloppy in the device. Micro USB was designed for SMALL devices, like cell phones. There is no real reason a device as large as this (not that it's large, but it's bigger than a cell phone) should have a Micro USB.

I purchased this drive after having a great experience with it's predecessor, the Iomega eGo Helium 1 TB drive. Unfortunately, this newer model seems to be made of much cheaper components.

The drive died after only four weeks of use, just after Amazon's very short return policy expired. Out of the box, the USB connector wiggled loose with the slightest movement. Then, my computer stopped recognizing it altogether. Now, although, I've only handled it with care and used it at my desk at home, it just makes strange clunking sounds and can't be mounted whatsoever.

Hopefully this review will help others save the $100 I lost on this purchase. In short, stick with the previous Iomega "Ego Helium" model instead.

Hope this helps.
If you want to loose your data this is the drive for you! I'm a PC user. I got this drive as a secure backup device. Windows XP wouldn't recognize it properly using disk manager although it was visible as a mass storage device. I happened to have a copy of Acroios true image laying around and I was able to initialize it using that and then add it as a drive. It seemed to work ok. Then I added the encryption software provided by IOMEGA and backed my data up to it. Then I upgraded my machine to Windows 7. After that the drive would not initialize. Tried on another machine and still no dice. The drive was now unreadable as a USB device. I had to tear it open and connect it to a SATA cable to get it connected again (with a re-format). So my data is gone. Don't buy this drive...please.
