always been focused on bringing to end-users easy-to-use, high value data storage
solutions. Today, we take a look at its 100GB portable hard disk.

The box

 

We see the full package here. The portable hard disk case with
the hard disk inside, the software CD, the user manual and warranty card and
the USB 2.0 interface cables.

 

Sleek and slim IOMega Hard Disk Case. The Aluminum build means
good heat dissipation from the Hard Disk inside the case to the outside environment.
Indeed, the case gets rather warm when plugged into a PC, signifying good thermal
dissipation.

 

The USB port behind the Case. There is also a switch to turn the
Hard Disk ON/OFF and also to switch the power modes between USB and External.
The External power adapter, should one chooses to use external power source,
has to be bought seperately.

The Hard Disk works fine powering off from the USB. Even with
1 USB modem, 1 additional external USB Hard Disk Drive, the IOMega 100GB External
Portable faced zero power issues during our testing.

The Hitachi 5400RPM Travel Star 100GB which is the heart of the
package. IOMega may be packing some of their 100GB with 7200RPM variants.

 

Let’s go on to the performance tests.
