Iomega UltraMax and Black Series External Drives for Macs

Dec 20, 2006

Iomega is rolling out two new external storage drives just for Mac users. The larger UltraMax sits nicely on your desktop with a whopping 1TB capacity while the ‘Black Series Portable Hard Drive’ is slim and compact with a 120GB capacity. They both come with FireWire and USB 2.0 ports as well as Retrospect Express backup software.

The UltraMax operates in RAID 0 mode by default, but can be switched to RAID 1 Mirroring for data backup. The Black Series drive is a small bus-powered hard drive that can operate without an external power source and spins at 5400 RPM.
And although they come preformatted for Macs with HFS+, the UltraMax can be reformatted to work with PCs, while the Black drive can work with PCs without reformatting. The UltraMax 1TB is priced at around $500, while the Black 120GB is priced at around $190.
