Iomega updates eGo hard drive range with USB 3.0

Iomega has today announced it intends to updating its external hard drive lines to use USB 3.0, replacing the USB 2.0 connections. The first hard drives to receive the USB 3.0 update will be the eGo Portable Hard Drive range.
To soften the blow of having to buy a new hard drive for the faster transfer speeds Iomega has decided to retain the pricing on the old drives. So the eGo USB 3.0 drives will cost the same as their USB 2.0 equivalents.
500GB and 1TB models of the eGO drives will be released with a USB 3.0 connection in October. Both will include 256-bit hardware encryption for data protection, Drop Guard Xtreme for ensuring data survives a drop, and a USB cable.
The next Iomega range to get the USB 3.0 treatment will be the Prestige Compact Portable Hard Drive, but we’ll be waiting until the first quarter of 2011 to see that. The rest of Iomega’s external drive offerings will then be updated over the rest of the year.
