Iomega Mac Companion Hard Drive
Iomega – the name that is often associated with data storage, is back with a new device that targets Apple’s Mac. Dubbed the Iomega Mac Companion Hard Drive, this particular storage device comes with the tagline, “Mac Users Need It, the Iomega Mac Companion Hard Drive has It”. Hmmm, sounds pretty comprehensive, where it will not only help stash your precious data away, it will also make sure your iPad, iPhone and iPod juiced up whenever you are on-the-go.
The Iomega Mac Companion Hard Drive will sport a couple of FireWire 800 interfaces alongside a USB 2.0 hub, in addition to 2TBs or 3TBs of storage space with a fast 7200 RPM hard drive inside. Not only that, it sports Iomega Protection Suite with Mac-specific software.
This has been positioned to be a speedy, large capacity desktop hard drive that has been specially styled to work with the latest Mac computers, sporting a first-of-its-kind convenient high-powered port as well which will be able to juice up your iPad, iPhone and iPod. Not only that, it will also boast of a selection of computer interfaces that will help you hook up to peripherals such as a printer or other external storage device.
You will be able to choose form 2TB and 3TB capacities, relying on a fast 7200 RPM 3.5″ hard drive formatted HFS+ that will make it play nice with Mac computers the moment you purchase it, fresh right out of the box. Just like most of Apple’s designs, the Iomega Mac Companion Hard Drive will be tiny enough to make it understated, where it will fit perfectly on the base of your Apple iMac or your Apple monitor without missing a beat.
Even better is you need not purchase any additional extra cables, as the drive itself will be accompanied by one FireWire 800, one conversion FireWire 400-800, and one USB 2.0 cable. As with everything else in life, there is a price to pay – and you will need to fork out $195 for the 2TB model, while the 3TB capacity model will set you back by $295.
