Iomega adds USB 2.0 and eSATA drives

Iomega has introduced two new storage devices: the stylish eGo USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive and the speedy eSATA/USB 2.0 Professional Hard Drive.

The eGo Portable Hard Drive USB 2.0 has an elegantly curved chassis with the choice of two colors -- cherry-red or burnished gray -- and chrome endcaps. The eGo Drive also packs a lot of storage capability -- the 160GB 2.5-inch drive is USB-powered, and it comes with EMC Retrospect HD software for automatic backups, scheduled backups, or on-demand backups. Iomega says that the included DropGuard technology protects the drive from accidental damage caused by drops of up to 51 inches.

Also announced is the eSATA/USB 2.0 Professional Hard Drive, a slender silver hard drive that uses the new 3Gbps eSATA interface for the fastest possible access to its 500GB storage capacity. Its high performance is designed for advanced graphics software and video editing applications, according to Iomega. It comes with EMC's Retrospect Express software for automatic backups, scheduled backups, or on-demand backups. For computers that do not have an eSATA interface (PCI eSATA cards are available separately), the USB 2.0 interface offers a universally popular alternative.

Both drives are compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Home/XP Professional/XP Professional x64, and Windows Vista. The eGo Portable Hard Drive is compatible with Mac OS X 10.1.5 or above; the Professional Hard Drive eSATA is compatible with Mac OS X 10.2 or above.

The eSATA/USB 2.0 Professional Hard Drive requires a system with an eSATA interface for operation as an eSATA drive (PCI eSATA card not included).

The 160GB eGo Portable Hard Drive USB 2.0 is now available for €139 (US$277) including VAT. The eSATA/USB 2.0 500GB Professional Hard Drive is also now available for €179 including VAT.
