Rev heads our way

Iomega’s new Rev 35GB/90GB hard disk storage drives will be available from retailers and distributors next week.

The drive, available for $699, offers a capacity of 35GB (or 90GB compressed) per removable disk. Although using hard drive technology, the Rev is packaged in removable 2.5in x 2.5in cartridges so you can buy one drive and swap media. It has data transfers rates ranging from 12.7MBps to 25.4MBps.

The drive comes with a new Rev-specific Pro version of Iomega’s Automatic Backup program. The program’s estimated 2.6:1 compression ratio, new to this version, is what puts the 90GB into the drive’s name. Also included is AES encryption, and a special version of Norton Ghost.

Although the main target for the product is small and medium business, Office Works and Dick Smith Electronics are among the retailers to offer interest in stocking Rev drives said Scott Dillon, Iomega’s ANZ country manager.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
