Iomega Announces Mac Drives At Apple Expo


Iomega unveiled a plethora of external hard drives at Apple Expo including a 1.5TB drive. Said drive resembles the MacPro. The UltraMax Pro sports two SATA-II drives with RAID 0, I or JBOD configurations and a handful of interfaces (two FireWire 800, one FireWire 400 and one USB 2.0). You also have the option of picking up an e-SATA version with a USB interface. Each drive is $600.


The UltraMax is a single e-SATA drive with two FireWire 800, one FireWire 400 and one USB ports. RAID support is dropped due to capacity being limited to 500 or 750GB, but that’s ok considering they start out at $190. The aforementioned price applies to the 500GB model with one FireWire 400 and one USB interface. The full-featured models are priced at $220 and $320 and will be available some time next month.


The MiniMax jumps up to 750GB with three USB 2.0 and three FireWire ports.


The eGo is the ultra portable drive and tops out at 250GB with a FireWire 400 and USB port. There’s also a 160GB version and both ship at the end of October for $260 and $160. A dual-interface 250GB drive is planned for later in the year.
