I have one, but only use it to store ISO's etc.

You will get a split opinion on this drive, as there is supposed to be a bug with certain ones. I haven't bothered to find out if mine is one of the affected drives.

Been running 2 of these for months now as dual backups with no problems for storing photos in raw format.
No problems as of yet.
Backup onto them continually.

get a different drive mate, iomega don't use any of their own components, if you read the box then it will say that it needs ATLEAST 8mb or more of cache, this is because they use different componets and they dont ever now what they need to use, best to go for a seagate or something which has a better brand mate... hope this helps
