Iomega UltraMax and Black Series External Drives for Macs

Rue Liu - Dec 20, 2006, 12:02pm CST

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.
