The Radical Skin is one of three unique Iomega portable hard drives designed in collaboration with action sports apparel brand Skin Industries. Along with Knock Out and Red Hot, the $120 Radical Skin boasts an impressive 51-inch drop protecting rating and a generous three-year warranty, but it only comes in 500GB with no other capacities available. Not everyone will appreciate the design, but we recommend the Iomega Radical Skin for those who need a rugged portable hard drive.
The Iomega StorCenter ix2-200 NAS server makes a good, affordable backup and storage center for home and small office environments where only simple file sharing and data backup are needed. Keep looking for alternatives if you want more advanced NAS features.
The Iomega iConnect Wireless Data Station is a great device to quickly turn your USB external hard drives into a robust network storage solution. Its compact design and ease of use more than make up for its average throughput performance, which is fast enough for most casual file sharing and backup needs.
If you love flashy toys, the Iomega eGo is for you. It's a fast and stylish drive, but Mac users get left out when it comes to backup.
In the latest version of its eGo Portable Mac Edition, Iomega adds dual FireWire 800 ports, USB 2.0, and a durable Drop Guard Xtreme band that shields the drive from the impact of falls (up to 7 feet). Also, Iomega made the drive even more affordable than the previous version. With its included array of data protection software, the Iomega Ego BlackBelt Mac Edition hard drive is sure to meet your storage needs.
The Iomega eGo Helium is a cost-effective solution for MacBook Air users who need additional data storage and don't want to sacrifice form for function.
The Iomega StorCenter ix2 is a two-drive NAS device that offers Bluetooth support but no remote access via the Web. We don't like the fact that you can't access its two hard drives, but it still holds appeal for novice users looking for a dead simple NAS drive.
The Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link offers an easy way to watch digital video files without the need to hook up a computer to your TV.
Mac and PC users alike will appreciate the Iomega eGo Portable's triple interface connectivity that lets you choose from USB 2.0, FireWire 400, and FireWire 800. Combined with a rugged enclosure, free data protection software, and a robust three-year warranty, this drive is a great example of well-rounded hardware. We thoroughly recommend it both for average consumer as well as data-hounds on a budget.
The Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive Cloud Edition makes a very good simple home NAS server. Advanced users who need more control over their storage and remote access might want to look elsewhere.
