Iomega expands eGo drives

Iomega this week introduced new higher capacity and dual interface models for its popular Iomega eGo Portable Hard Drive. The company, which will be showing its new eGo Portable Hard Drive models as well as the rest of its Apple-oriented products at this week's Expo (booth #4610, West Hall), expanded the lineup with new 160GB and 250GB models; both feature dual USB 2.0 and FireWire 400 interfaces and are available in Cherry Red, Jet Black and Alpine White. Iomega also announced today new 250GB USB 2.0-powered models in Cherry Red, Midnight Blue and Jet Black. Launched in June of 2007, the stylish 2.5-inch easily fits in a briefcase or purse; it features an elegantly curved chassis chrome endcaps, setting the eGo Drive apart from other portable hard drives.

The USB-powered drive does not require a power supply and ships with EMC Retrospect software for automatic backups, scheduled backups, or on-demand backups. The drives also feature DropGuard technology, which protects the eGo drive from accidental damage caused by drops of up to 51 inches.

"With the eGo Portable Hard Drive, Iomega shook up the industry by introducing fashion to a world previously known for little gray and black boxes," said Tom Kampfer, President, Iomega Corporation. "Now we're raising the bar with exciting new models that offer more capacity and connectivity with PCs and Macs. The new models are available in several different stylish colors, making the Iomega eGo Portable Hard Drive the ideal portable storage product for family, friends, students, professionals and anyone who wants to add some personality to their computer."
