320GB eSATA drive ships
Iomega today began shipping its new Desktop Hard Drive eSATA/USB 2.0 320GB (site not updated) that boasts triple the transfer rate of USB 2.0. The new drive ships with an included eSATA PCI card, as well as a cable that upgrades most PC motherboards to eSATA functionality. The drive supports the addition of multiple eSATA drives, each of which exceeds the performance of a FireWire 800 drive. Drives are stackable, and users can mount multiple drives vertically with a built-in stand. Each 320GB Desktop Hard Drive ships with EMC Retrospect Express software for automated backups for Mac OS as well as Microsoft Windows systems, as well as a USB 2.0 cable and a quick start guide. The Iomega Desktop Hard Drive is available for $240.
