Iomega Rev Drives and Disks Rev Up Backups

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
