Ya know ... Iomega really dropped the ball a few years back. They knowingly shipped Zip drives with faulty mechanics. They knowingly shipped remanufactured power supplies that exceeded the voltage of their zip drives causing power supply failures.* They refused to move quickly to upgrade the capacity of the Zip Drive and make older Zip Disks compatible. Then they moved to 40 MEG laptop discs called Clik Drives while the smallest USB Thumb drive was 256MB for the same price. Iomega is certainly in my top 10 of worst run companies.
Today they did this:
Several of my clients in my Apple Tech service biz have G-Technology
G-Tech Drives that look like this:
Today Iomega released these drives:
How lame of Iomega to dump on a small company like G-Tech and pretend these type of drives have never been done before.
* Back some 7 years ago ... I tested several dozen Iomega power supplies - the voltage coming out of them was 7.4 volts - not 5V as advertised on the power supply and the 6V maximum that the Zip drives would accept. The "over-voltage" would slowly burn the power supply and/or the Zip drive up
