HardwareZone has reviewed one of the newest Zip drives from Iomega , wich supports to write up to 750MB on a Zip-disk :
Iomega is targeting the new Iomega 750MB Zip USB 2.0 drive at small office/home workers who need an affordable, reliable and secure storage device for backing up, protecting, saving and organizing their digital content such as e-mail, legal documents, financial records for example. We believe that Iomega has done a good job towards achieving that goal.
In terms of physical attributes, it is relatively portable in terms of weight and size. It can be easily carried in a bag and transported from one location to another. Iomega has always been particular in the design of their products. This is shown by the silver chrome and blue combo design of their drive; slim and rounded profile, right down to the power adapter.

However, there are few shortcomings that prevent the Iomega 750MB Zip from excellence. For one, the cost might be too prohibitive for consumers who just want a low cost storage solution. They can range from users who want to create backups of their music CDs, home videos or just distributing digitized wedding photos to their relatives. A lower cost solution like the CD-RW drive and media will be ideal in this case.
