Iomega Portable Hard Drive Carrying Case

I recently received an Iomega Prestige 500 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive and wanted a portable case to go with it.  I was between the Case Logic Compact Portable Hard Drive Case and the Iomega.  The Iomega seemed to offer more protection and I figured it would also fit better since it was made for Iomega drives.  I was wrong.

Unfortunately, the Iomega Prestige drives are smaller than most of the older drives.  When placed inside the Iomega case, there is about a 1 inch gap, length-wise.  Additionally, the stretch strap that should secure it is of little use as it barely even touches the Iomega Prestige drive.

I was however, impressed with the build quality and construction.  The zipper glides smoothly and the exterior material feels soft and well cushioned.  Also, the mesh pocket easily holds my USB cable.  I have an older and larger portable hard drive that fit inside the case perfectly, so I am keeping it for that drive.

For older and larger portable hard drives, I think this case is perfect.  Unfortunately, if you have the newer Iomega Prestige drive or a similarly sized drive, this case is just too spacious.
