Iomega… “announce that it is moving to the new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface for all Iomega USB 2.0 portable hard drives, beginning with the award-winning line of Iomega eGo Portable Hard Drives. The new all-USB 3.0 eGo Portable Hard Drives will feature hardware encryption and super toughness, too, thanks to a drop spec twice the industry average all at USB 2.0 product prices. This market-leading move continues Iomega’s tradition of technology leadership.”

USB 3.0 Transition Timeline for Iomega Portable Hard Drives

Iomega plans to move all eGo Portable Hard Drives in 500GB and 1TB capacities to the new USB 3.0 interface by early October. Totally compatible will all USB 2.0 computers, the new USB 3.0 eGo Portable Hard Drives will include Iomega’s industry-leading Drop Guard Xtreme, which provides added protection from drops of nearly seven feet or twice the industry average.

It’s a good move for Iomega and well worth waiting till October if you want a USB 3.0 version of the eGo portable hard drive.
