Iomega eGo refresh gets triple-interface design

Iomega eGo refresh now features triple-interface design.

The Triple Interface Iomega eGo has FireWire 400, FireWire 800, and USB 2.0 ports. Iomega

Last month we reported on Iomega's new line of eGo external hard drives. Today, the company sweetens the deal with an even more versatile device: a portable hard drive with FireWire 400, FireWire 800, and USB 2.0 ports for the ultimate in cross-compatibility.

Iomega dropped by CNET's offices last week to hand over a test drive, and although we haven't put it through our labs benchmark tests yet, the eGo track record is good enough to assume that this device will earn good marks. The drives are delivered in HFS+ for out-of-the-box Mac compatibility, but you can format them for Windows as well.

Like most of the eGo drives, this triple interface model features Iomega's DropGuard technology that protects it from drops up to 51 inches, which is important if you're carrying around your crucial data.

In addition, the company protects your data with three layers of software protection: a full version of Iomega Quikprotect backup, EMC Retrospect Express, and a free lifetime subscription to MozyHome Online backup (2GB per month).

The 250GB, 320GB, and 500GB Triple Interface eGo Portable Hard Drive from Iomega are available now for $100, $110, and $150, respectively. Look for a full review on CNET.com coming soon.
