Iomega upgrades eGo portable drives to USB 3.0

updated 09:55 am EDT, Tue August 24, 2010

Iomega eGo drives now sport USB 3.0

Iomega will soon release upgraded eGo USB 3.0 portable hard drives. Sporting an interface that's about 10 times faster than the older USB 2.0 standard, the drives are rare as they won't cost any more than their older, slower counterparts. Each has AES 256-bit hardware encryption and can withstand seven-foot drops thanks to a bundled Power Grip Band and skip protection in the drives themselves.

The drives will also ship with a software Protection Suite that includes Iomega's QuikProtect, v.Clone and Trend Micro's Internet Security programs.

The 500GB and 1TB drives will ship early in October, with suggested prices set at $114 and $189, respectively. In 2011, Iomega plans to upgrade its Prestige Compact along with the balance of its external portable hard drives to the USB 3.0 standard.
