Iomega Zips into SCSI

Iomega today filled gaps in its Zip drive family, adding workstation and mobile lines and cutting prices.

The new products are an internal 3.5-inch SCSI Zip drive and a PC Card connection for notebooks and laptop PCs. The 3.5-inch SCSI Zip drive (£125 + VAT) is the Zip's first venture into workstation territory. It fits into 3.5-inch and comes with mounting brackets that also let it slot into 5.25-inch bays.

The PCMCIA Zip card (£69 + VAT) provides a fast connection between a Zip drive and any mobile PC with a PC Card slot. Blanket price cuts bring the external and internal Zip drives down £20 to £129 + VAT and £125 + VAT respectively; Jaz drives also fall in price, with the external version falling from £499 + VAT to £379 + VAT and the internal version falling from £399 + VAT to £299 + VAT. Street pricing will be considerably lower.

Iomega counts IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Acer, NEC, Dan Technology, Evesham Micros and Packard Bell among OEM system customers.
