Iomega Rev Drives and Disks Rev Up Backups

Ready for speed, reliability and durability? Then check out Iomega's new removable media.

Back Up, Jack

I tested the external USB 2.0 version of the Rev drive. An internal ATAPI drive is also available, with FireWire, SCSI, SATA and multitape autoloaders planned. I installed the included software and rebooted the system, and the Rev appeared as Drive D. I was able to drag and drop files onto it like any other hard drive.

• Impressive drive speed
• Large capacity in removable media
• Quiet operation


• Bundled backup software limited as a server solution
• Potential compatibility issues with existing backup software
• Format is new and untested

Iomega REV Drives and Disks, $399.99 (model tested). Iomega Corp., (888) 446-6342, (858) 314-7000. www.iomega.com
