Iomega Increases the Capacity of MiniMax Drive

Iomega today announced that it has enhanced its external storage solution for the Mac mini by doubling the capacity of the Iomega MiniMax Desktop Hard Drive from 250GB to 500GB. The new model keeps the same features that endeared Mac mini users to the original MiniMax Drive, including a three-port USB 2.0 hub, three FireWire ports, a smart power switch that powers up and down in tandem with the Mac mini, and an interactive cooling system with thermal probe that automatically regulates fan speed.

"Iomega's MiniMax Drive is a fun, useful addition to the Mac mini that instantly improves data security along with data storage capacity," said Peter Wharton, vice president of marketing, Iomega Corporation. "The 500GB MiniMax complements the great features of the Mac Mini and creates a versatile platform that can organize and protect any user's digital movies, photography and music. And that's what Mac users really want - more capacity, more security, ease-of-use and a visually attractive product. The new 500GB MiniMax delivers on all of those user preferences."

The Iomega MiniMax measures 6.5 inches square and 2 inches tall. It has the same footprint and matches the industrial design of the Mac mini. Its 7200 RPM hard drive with 8MB cache adds 500GB of storage to the Mac mini's internal 60GB or 80GB native capacity. And with Dantz Retrospect backup software included, Mac mini users get backup and data recovery to secure their files, photos, songs, and other data. A single 500GB MiniMax can save up to 2,000,000 photos, 9,250 hours of music, or 750 hours of video.

The 500GB Iomega MiniMax has a suggested retail price of US$279.95. The product will also be available in Europe.
