Looking to boost sales to businesses running Apple Inc.'s Macintosh computers, Iomega Corp. at the Apple Expo 2007 conference in Paris this week unveiled two new external dual-drive products and added three new products to the existing UltraMax product line.
The two new double-drive UltraMax Pro Desktop Hard Drives, each with a 500TB capacity, are now available for about US$600.
One model includes two FireWire 800 ports, a single FireWire 400 port and one USB 2.0 port interfaces, and the other either a USB 2.0 and eSATA 3 interface, Iomega said. The new UltraMax Pro devices are fully removable, which enables hot-swap functionality, an Iomega spokesman said.
Meanwhile, Iomega added three products to its UltraMax Desktop Hard Drive line.
Two quad interface models, one with a capacity of 500GB and the other with 750GB, will ship in October for $220 and $320, respectively, Iomega said.
A dual-interface 500GB UltraMax Desktop drive, priced at $190, is also slated to ship next month, the company said.
