I had an old Zip100, which was awesome, but it was a parallel port and I could never could get it to work properly with my printer on my new computer, a Compaq Presario.
Reluctantly moving into the year 2000, I retired the old one and bought this new model since my new computer has USB ports. I wish I had sooner! I love it! It was extremely easy to install, after doing 6 quick steps which took five minutes of my time if that, I'm downloading all kinds of stuff!
My little brother and daughter are really fond of downloading MP3's and other files which take up tons of my hard drive, and it drove me crazy, but now I just gave them each a zip disk and told 'em when it's full, they're out of luck. The price of the disks did seem overwhelming at first, but when you realize how many files they can hold, it's well worth it opposed to having a zillion annoying little A drive disks.
As for annoying qualities, I have to agree with the other reviewers, when you eject the disk, it shoots out like a bullet. Be prepared for that, it took me by surprise!
It's a small price to pay for something that makes your computer experience so darn pleasant!

As it makes little sense for the 100mb to be the original Zip you put on a new system anymore, most people who buy this product will probably be upgrading from an old parallel version. To be sure, it is an improvement on that device. It's noticeably faster. But it's smart for only a couple of very specific kinds of user.
The first is the "Backup Bandit". If you only use your zip drive for routine, automated backup of files that fit easily onto a single 100mb disk, it's unlikely you need much more than this device.
The second is the "I've-had-a-Zip-for-years Geek". If you have a huge library of Zip 100 disks already amassed, and the average file size is above 10mb, then there's an argument to be made for staying with this product. Notice that I'm talking here about a library of truly BIG files, typically graphics. If all you have is a massive library of text documents, you shouldn't fear switching over to the Zip 250 at all.
In my opinion, anyone else should go for the USB version of the Zip 250, and add on a FireWire adapter when it becomes available.
Why?
Well, the Zip 250 USB with FireWire is simply the most flexible Zip out there. You can use it on literally any system that has at least USB ports, can achieve the lightning speeds of internal SCSI Zips if the computer has FireWire ports--and you don't have to sacrifice a scrap of portability. While the Zip 100 here can be fitted out with a FireWire adapter, it can't use Zip 250 disks. True, the Zip 250 is mysteriously slower than a Zip 100 if the files are something above 10mb. But you'll never notice the difference with the vast majority of files.

With my computer's only free drive bay occupied by a CD-Rewriter, and most of its ports supporting other gadgets, this USB Zip drive seemed like a good addition to my expanding collection of software and peripherals.
Based upon my experience with this product, I highly recommend Zip drives in principle. They provide consolidation and back-up points for files scattered throughout many conventional floppy disks, facilitate the storage of large files (particularly visual) that would not make it on floppies, and liberate hard drive space.
As for this product in particular, its portability is an obvious asset. I also highly recommend it for those who don't want to disembowel their computers and literally risk getting their wires crossed. Although I can't speak for those with other systems, installation was quite easy on Windows 98. This device also works quite smoothly, accepting files from my floppy disks and hard drive rather quickly.
The ejection of Zip disks is not too much of an inconvenience; I just place a hand or finger in front of the drive when it happens (After fifteen minutes of inactivity, the drive will eject disks automatically.). And, even though my desktop system doesn't have the appropriate "iMac" look, the Zip drive still looks quite stylish!

I edit a scientific journal and write reference materials for clients. Technical jargon used in describing computers, computer peripherals, and internet resources largely escapes me. What hadn't escaped me was a profound sense of doom if I didn't get my files copied and safely stored, assuming the likely event that my laptop (Compac Presario 1240, Windows 98, WordPerfect 8.0) would eventually crash.
Having no need other than getting a reliable back-up filing system, I chose the 100M USB Iomega, based largely on other customer's reviews. I'm very pleased with my selection. It was a snap to install, even for a computer-moron like me. In an afternoon of work, I backed up all my files (100 technical manuscripts; 3 books). Given the very attractive low purchase price, I highly recommend this little gem of a computer peripheral.

I purchased the drive (USB ZIP 100) as a way to transport files home from work (sneakernet). Installation at work and home was a breeze, and did not affect other USB devices already in use. So far I have had no trouble, and highly recommend this as a cheap and easy solution for anyone who needs to keep data portable. Iomega needs to improve the eject mechanism...nearly launches the disk into the neighbors yard!
