Iomega's new 120GB model, like the rest of its Portable Hard Drive lineup, has a sleek and compact form factor that is smaller than most PDAs and weighs a mere 5.76 ounces (163 grams).
The 4200-rpm drive has a rugged aluminum enclosure. A blue drive light signals disk activity, and an on/off switch allows laptop users to power down the device without disconnecting it. Each drive comes with a USB cable, supplementary power cord, and software suite CD that includes Iomega Automatic Backup (Mac), Iomega Automatic Backup Pro (PC), MUSICMATCH Jukebox music management software (PC and Mac) and AdobePhotoshop Album SE (PC) for digital photos.
The Iomega Portable Hard Drive is compatible with Microsoft Windows Me/2000/2000 Pro/ XP Home or Professional, and with USB-equipped Macintosh computers running Mac OS 8.6 or above with Mac OS USB 1.3.3 or above (includes blue and white G3, G4, iMac, and all versions of Mac OS X).
The product is now available for $279.95 at www.iomega.com and other online retail sites, select retail locations and through the distribution and catalog channels. Other drive capacities available include 40GB ($119.95), 60GB ($149.95), 80GB ($179.95), and 100GB ($249.95).
