4. Usability and Cost
This 3.5 pound device can be used in all normal environments with a line voltage of 100-240V 50-60 HZ AC supply. Its cost is a whopping 300$ for its 1TB model and 500$ for its 2TB model.
Blogger’s Review: – Looking into all the features that it provides is it worth the cost? In my view a lot of other companies like Seagate and Transcend offer hard drives at much lower costs. Combining the price of a Seagate’s 3TB hard drive and the wireless station offered by Iomega comes down to a mere 150$(approx. as on Amazon.com). So it’s all up to you now on whether you wish to pay for the brand or for the technology.
