Iomega 1TB UltraMax Mac

Iomega today revamped its external hard drives pre-formatted with HFS+ for Mac users. The 1TB UltraMax desktop drive (pictured) is a major upgrade from the 640GB limit of the original that retains many of the same key features. Set to a single, 1TB RAID 0 stripe by default, the newer UltraMax can also be switched to a 500GB RAID 1 mirror or even a "simple" mode that shows the two 500GB drives by themselves. A triple-interface drive with FireWire 800, FireWire 400, and USB 2.0, Iomega's range-topping Mac drive is bundled with EMC's Retrospect Express backup software and is shipping immediately for $500.

Also revealed today is the 120GB Black portable hard drive. The simple-shaped hard disk is built with Apple's notebooks in mind and has its own Drop Shock technology to prevent damage to the drive platters during a fall. The Black is also completely bus-powered over either FireWire 400 or USB 2.0, Iomega says. It too ships with Retrospect Express and is ready today for $190.
