Iomega REV 120-Gig Ships

SAN DIEGO -- Iomega Corporation (NYSE: IOM), a global leader in data storage and protection, today announced a new pricing model and immediate availability of the new Iomega REV® 120GB Backup Drive, the third generation of its award-winning REV technology and a benchmark in smart, sensible backup for small and medium-sized businesses, remote work groups and others.

The Iomega REV 120GB Backup Drive is now available worldwide as an external USB 2.0 model for $499.99, and as an internal SATA interface model for $479.99. Every REV 120GB Backup Drive comes complete with one REV 120GB disk and EMC® award-winning Retrospect® Express software for automatic backup and disaster recovery. Iomega also offers REV 120GB Server Kit models that include one REV 120GB drive and five REV 120GB disks along with CA's BrightStor® ArcServe® Backup software with disaster recovery.

"The launch of the REV 120GB Backup Drive is a new benchmark in cost-effective data protection for SMBs," said Tom Kampfer, president and COO, Iomega Corporation. "The REV 120GB drive delivers more native capacity, near instantaneous random access to files, faster backups and restores, and the portability of ruggedized removable cartridges - all at a better value than entry-level tape products and with a higher comfort level of data protection than standard desktop hard drives. Compared to the prior REV 70 generation pricing, the REV 120 drive offers 50GB more capacity per disk in a drive costing approximately $100 less. The REV 120 drive carries forward our technology leadership with an install base of more than 350,000 REV drives and more than 2,000,000 REV disks in the marketplace today. Our users have the peace of mind of knowing their data is safe and secure on a technology platform that's been growing with them for more than four years."
