To conclude this review I’d say that the new Iomega ZIP 100MB USB is an essential, unavoidable companion for every PC users that are on the look for something to replace floppy disks. The new look of the drive is pleasant while its cheap price makes sure everyone can afford it. The ZIP 100 MB USB comes with a real cool software package that doesn’t manage, however, to help customers swallow the pill of the missing ZIP 100MB disk. Whether you need to make a little room on your hard disk, save your work, or store the files you have downloaded from the Net, the Iomega ZIP 100MB USB is definitely the right choice for a safe data storage.
