Iomega Zips into SCSI

Iomega today filled gaps in its Zip drive family, adding workstation and mobile lines and cutting prices.
Written by Arif Mohamed, Contributor

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.
