Not that zippy.

Advantages: Looks good and is easy to set up.
Disadvantages: Rock-bottom drive, but not quite a rock-bottom price.

Its another product from Iomega that has nothing to do with the Zip drive or Zip disks, yet are labelled with the Zip name by Iomega, who hope that they can trade off their reputation and sell a few units to people whove heard that the Zip drive is quit ...

Burn Baby Burn

Advantages: Greate value for money
Disadvantages: Not top spec, can't do much else while it burns
