Iomega is coming up with new eGo portable external drives. First, there’s a new Compact Edition eGo model that has a 1TB capacity and USB 3.0 support. it comes in Ruby , Blue and Silver with capacites of 320GB ($95), 500GB ($115) and 1TB ($200).The eGo BlackBelt Mac Edition supports Firewire 400/800 and a physical bumper Drop Guard (Mac users are always willing to pay an extra).
On the desktop side, drives from 1TB to 2TB are available. Again, the Mac version comes with Firewire, while the PC eGo drive has USB 3.0. Iomega even sells a USB 3.0 PC Express adaptor for laptop owners stuck with USB 2.0 ports.
Iomega claims that they have the “best drop spec in the industry” but we have not put it to the test, and hopefully you won’t either.
