Iomega has announced that stylish data security has reached the 1Terabyte (TB) plateau with the worldwide introduction of the Iomega eGo 1Tb Desktop Hard Drive.
This new single-drive HDD – Super eGo – is now available worldwide in ruby red, midnight blue, and jet black. Its design is based on the popular Iomega eGo Portable Hard Drive, one of Iomega’s best-selling line of hard drives.
The eGo Portable is currently available in 160Gb, 250Gb and 320Gb capacities, and in several different colours, including new camouflage and leather-wrapped models. 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.
The Iomega eGo Desktop Hard Drive is compatible with Mac OS X 10.1 or higher and with Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP, and Windows Vista. EMC Retrospect HD backup software is available for free download (PC only).
