Review

1. Iomega eGo BlackBelt Mac Edition (1TB) by Cnet

We recommended last year’s version of the Iomega eGo Portable Mac Edition because of its impressive throughput speeds and a rugged design. Now the latest eGo BlackBelt version ups the device’s capacity to 1TB for just $220 and adds an additional drop-protection measure that wraps the drive in a tough rubber enclosure. Now with physical protection from 7-foot drops and a useful backup software suite included, the Iomega eGo Portable Mac Edition is faster and cheaper than ever. If we haven’t made ourselves clear enough, we firmly recommend this updated drive series.

2. Iomega eGo Portable Hard Drive (USB 3.0, 1TB) by Computer Shopper

Minor software frustrations aside, the eGo remains a speedy, solid contender for your portable-drive dollars, especially if your PC has USB 3.0 (or you’re considering upgrading).

3. Iomega eGo BlackBelt Hard Drive by Macnn

While Mac users can take advantage of a wide variety of external hard drives, Iomega continues to offer its eGo series with a special version already formatted in HFS+ for use with Mac OS X. The company’s eGo BlackBelt is the latest drive carrying the Mac Edition designation, with improvements to durability and capacity
