Iomega external drives

today introduced a redesigned series of its Iomega-branded external hard drives that feature a stackable design, a drive stand for space-saving vertical placement (can be stowed in the drive case when not in use), a high-gloss black finish, a Kensington security slot, and an on/off switch to power the drive. The drive will be available in single- (USB 2.0), dual- (USB 2.0/FireWire 400), and triple-interface (USB 2.0/FW 400/FW 800) versions. The "whisper-quiet" 72000 rpm drives ship with Iomega Automatic Backup software and disaster recovery software, while the triple-interface version also includes Dantz Retrospect Express.

The single-interface drives will ship on October 5 in 120GB ($160), 160GB ($190), and 250GB ($250) capacities. The dual-interface drives will ship on October 15 for $180, $200, and $270 for the same size capacities (respectively); while the new triple-interface drives will ship on November 5th in 160GB ($210) and 250GB ($280), and 400GB ($430) capacities. Iomega's value line of external hard drives is available now at retail and online with drives priced at $130 for the 80GB model, $150 for the 120GB model, $160 for the 160GB model, and $230 for the 250GB model.
