Iomega eGo Mac Edition portable hard drive
If you are rocking to a Mac machine, then chances are you would have plenty of media stored on it, let alone data of your work and what not. Well, making a backup is always important as you can never quite tell when disaster in the guise of Murphy will strike, so choosing the right kind of backup medium is always important. Iomega’s got your back this time around with the eGo Mac Edition portable hard drive, where this new Mac-oriented hard drive range will offer plenty of storage alongside unprecedented durability, as it can withstand drops and still travel easily in a pocketbook or briefcase while looking dressed to the nines.
When combined with the recent launches of the Iomega Helium portable hard drive and the Iomega Mac Companion hard drive, Iomega;s new line of portable and desktop hard drives for Mac users seems to be complete. All three drives will come formatted in HFS+ for compatibility with Mac computers the moment you unbox it, making them the perfect addition for Mac owners, regardless of whether they are rocking to notebooks or desktops.
Coming in 500GB and 1TB capacities, the new black Iomega eGo Mac Edition portable hard drive will feature a couple of FireWire 800 ports as well as one USB 2.0 port that delivers fast performance and versatile connections. Not only that, you will also be able to keep your heart in your mouth since it will feature a Drop Guard Case that helps protect the drive from drops of up to seven feet in height – that is more than two meters when you think about it. Forget about lugging around a power adapter, as the eGo Mac Edition will not need any external power supply to keep it going. After all, each purchase comes with a trio of cables – USB 2.0, FireWire 800 and a FireWire 800-FireWire 400 adaptor.
As for the new Iomega Helium portable hard drive, it will also come in 500GB and 1TB capacities, sporting a solitary USB 2.0 port and a durable aluminum case. It also needs no power supply and will be equipped with one USB 2.0 cable.
Shared features include 256-bit AES encryption, the Iomega Protection Suite, Iomega QuikProtect for simple scheduled file-level backup, and MozyHome Online Backup for convenient online backup of up to 2GB free. Regardless of which model you pick up, it will come with a three-year warranty.
