    As with most portable hard drives, it is very quiet.
    David
    The aluminum strip that goes around 3/4 of the circumference does not hold top in place when drive warms up in use, nor does the sticky adhesive glue on the inside.

    Iomega is an early supporter of Mac and Apple, and I like supporting Apple partners; but unless they design this better, I would not get this particular product.

    Size Name: 500GB
    I got this portable hard drive recently to use for Time Machine with my MacBook Pro. Some notes and observations so far:

    1) First off, the hard drive's ruby red color is not as bright as the Amazon photo. It's a darker red, which I prefer.

    2) As with most portable hard drives, it is very quiet. Sitting a foot or two away from it, you should barely hear it, if at all.

    3) This hard drive does not spin down after a certain amount of inactivity (unlike, for instance, a WD Passport, which spins down after 10 minutes or so of inactivity). You may or may not prefer this, depending on what you use it for. I use mine as a Time Machine, which backs up my hard drive every hour. I prefer the fact that it doesn't keep spinning down and spinning back up every hour (many argue that this is worse for a hard drive than simply leaving it on all the time, but there are varying opinions on this).

    4) I wouldn't say the hard drive runs hot. It feels warm to the touch when idling all day like mine. However it may get hot if being used for constant data access. The only time it has felt somewhat hot is when I did the initial ~200GB backup of my hard drive.

    5) This hard drive works well for daisy chaining. I have it connected to my MBP via Firewire 800, and I have a Firewire 400 external hard drive connected to the Iomega. NOTE: If you have the Iomega connected to your computer via USB, you cannot daisy chain a Firewire device.

    6) Size-wise, it is a bit bigger than my (USB-only) WD Passport but it is still fairly compact.

    7) The exterior feels like plastic, but the box says that the case is made from aluminum, so I'll trust that it is.

    8) The light on the back of the drive is VERY bright. It actually projects light onto my wall.

    Notice that you MUST register online to get the 3 years warranty! Don't forget this since
    IOMega is hoping you will miss it in the user manual otherwise it is only one year.

    Size Name: 500GB Verified Purchase
    Upon initial usage, transferring 250GB worth of data in about 4 different transfers, I found the hard drive edges to be temperature hot. I floated the hard drive to add air circulation at the bottom. Not even an hour has passed since initial usage, the top casing separated slowly from the body. I could see the glue stretching. I push it down gently to stick it back, but within seconds, it rose up again.

    Immediately I contacted Amazon for an exact replacement. Today the second Iomega Ego came, and I repeated the same procedure, but this time floating the drive to avoid overheating. It did not help: Although the top casing did not separate as badly as the first one, it did pop up. With the first product, I thought it was just quality control issue, and it was a fluke; but now that the problem is repeated with this second product, I do not think it is a coincidence.

    Iomega is an early supporter of Mac and Apple, and I like supporting Apple partners; but unless they design this better, I would not get this particular product. I travel a lot and in need of a sturdy portable hard drive. Wrapping this beautiful Ruby Red drive with a duct tape beats the original aesthetic intention of the designer.

    Size Name: 500GB
    This was my first external drive and it was as simple as I could imagine. I used the supplied Firewire 800 and connected it to my iMac and it instantly showed up in the finder. It offered me a TimeCapsule backup, but I just wanted to drag and drop some iMovie events and backup my Aperture library so that's what I did.
    I have yet to download the software that they provide links and registration numbers for. Kinda wish they came on the drive, but other than that I have no complaints.

    Size Name: 320GB
    I have had this drive for a week. It is attached to my 2 year old Imac 24". It worked immediately out of the box. I used the firewire 800 connection to do a Carbon Copy Cloner backup of the existing drive before setting up my Snow Leopard Time Machine. The firewire connection worked well and was fast. A backup of the drive using cloning software can not take advantage of the speed of firewire. I immediately noticed that the bottom of the drive gets quite hot. I wouldn't want it to stay this way for very long. The drive rotation shuts down after an idle period but the power to the firewire circuitry does not and keeps the drive almost as hot.

    When I shut down the Imac for the night the drive does not go down completely. The blue, very bright action LED and power stays on even when the Imac is turned off. I thought maybe something was wrong with the Imac and tried it on a less than one month old Mac Mini with the same results. In the morning the drive power (not platter rotation) was still on and fairly hot. I decided to try the USB connection.

    The USB worked very differently than firewire. The speed for Time Machine is more than adequate. Doing a complete new 32gb Time Machine backup using USB was very little difference than firewire. The drive barely got warm. During sleep time the drive stops rotating but the light stays on and it stays just slightly warm. It wakes up in about 1 second and does the Time Machine backup without a hitch when called upon. My old USB would take sometimes a minute to acquire before saving the backup. This one is immediate.

    In conclusion, the drive is very well constructed and solid. The firewire is fast and accurate. I would recommend that firewire be used to download big files on occasion and not left connected for a long time due to generating a lot of heat that can't be good for longevity. The USB is excellent, runs cool, and works as it should. Highly recommended.
