The new eGo Desktop model houses a 1Tb, 3.5-inch hard drive with USB 2.0 connectivity that holds up to 4-million photos, over 18 500 hours of music or 1 500 hours of video.
"By applying the award-winning style of the eGo design to a desktop hard drive, Iomega is giving users a one-terabyte Super eGo that’s all about form and function, a beautiful and pleasing design for even the most data-intensive applications," says Michelle Kasselman, key account manager for Iomega SA.  
"Today’s computer users want more style, capacity, and data security out of their computer hardware; the colourful, dependable and colossal one terabyte eGo Desktop Hard Drive delivers on all counts."
The new 1Tb eGo Desktop Hard Drive is a complete storage solution out of the box, including a license for EMC Retrospect HD software (PC-only download) for automatic backups, scheduled backups, or on-demand backups.
