Iomega eGo Portable Mac Edition (500GB, USB 2.0, FireWire, cherry red)
4 Star Review  cnet.com - Jun 22, 2009

THE GOOD: Triple interface connection; drop protection durability; fast transfer speeds (especially with FireWire 800), three-year warranty. THE BAD: Power cord not included; exposed ports susceptible to dirt. THE BOTTOM LINE: Mac and PC users alike will appreciate the Iomega eGo Portables triple interface connectivity that lets you choose from USB 2.0, FireWire 400, and FireWire 800. Combined with a rugged enclosure, free data protection software, and a robust three-year warranty, this drive is a great example of well-rounded hardware. We thoroughly recommend it both for average consumer as well as data-hounds on a budget.

Iomega eGo | mac edition - 500GB - red
3 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jan 5, 2010

The Iomega eGo Desktop Hard Drive USB 2.0 is a stylish external hard drive ideal for someone who wants a product that will look nice on their computer desk. It comes in three colors, Ruby Red, Midnight Blue and Jet Black. It has plug and play capability so it is ready to go right out of the box and is preformatted using NTFS. For secure and easy file backup, the Iomega eGo comes with (you have to download it from the internet) the software EMC Retrospect HD for the PC. That may not be the best software for everyone, but it is certainly good for users who dont have a lot of experience with external hard drives and arent sure how to best automate their new backup system. The Iomega eGo requires a Pentium II-class processor or better on PCs and on Macs is supported for Mac OS X 10.1 - 10.5. ... PROS: (1) very large capacity (2) not that expensive considering the capacity (3) fast internal disk will supply higher transfer speeds ... CONS: (1) large and heavy compared to other on the go type drives
