Iomega Makes Full Switch to USB 3.0
Iomega is charging forward with USB 3.0 technology integrated into all their products.Â Despite the fact that recent reports [In-Stat] indicate USB 3.0 will be slow to adaption throughout 2011 and 2012.
Iomega says the change will not cost consumers a penny more in retail cost, but will deliver faster transfer speeds.Â USB 3.0, as we’ve reported, has a theoretical max of 5Gbps but we’ve only seen 70MB/s as best performing drives at the moment.
Iomega continues their promise of better performance with not only speed performance, but now a “drop spec” of up to 7 feet before you can expect any kind of damage or malfunction with the device.
Iomega’s drives come in 500GB and 1TB size starting at just $119.
