USB 2.0 Zip drive by Iomega
The Iomega Zip drive, which got its start in 1995 for portable storage of up to 100M, now can handle 750M in a $180 version for the Universal Serial Bus 2.0 port.
To compete with rival CD-rewritable and USB key chain devices, Iomega Corp. of Roy, Utah, has made the new 750M Zip backward-compatible with many of the 300 million older Zip backup and archival disks now in use. Included file-management software can sequentially back up files larger than 750M; media costs about $12 per disk.
The new plug-and-play Zip drive reads, writes and rewrites at 50X under Microsoft Windows or Mac OS with a transfer rate up to 7.5 megabytes/sec.
