Hands On - Iomega PocketZip

##AUTHORSPLIT##<--->An ideal high-capacity storage medium for laptop users, Iomega's PocketZip drive (once called Clik!) is neatly packaged in a compact PC card. No cables, no plugs, no nothing. You simply slide the card into any laptop's PC card slot. PocketZip's storage media are tiny, 2" x 2" disks that hold an impressive 40MB of data. No longer are laptop users limited to transferring files onto 1.44MB-capacity 3.5" diskettes. This drive offers new freedom to save digital images, MP3s, or even small video files onto a removable disk.

PocketZip can also be connected to a desktop computer, using an optional USB PocketZip PC Card Dock. It connects to a desktop's USB port and allows users to slide the PocketZip drive into the dock. This makes moving larger files between a laptop and desktop quick and easy. Plus, the extremely portable nature of the drive itself saves users the expense and hassle of having separate drives installed on each computer.

Our use of PocketZip showed the device to be as reliable as it is handy. Both the disks and the drive itself are tiny, making it very easy to move data (or the drive itself) from machine to machine. Because the drive is a PC card, it's streamlined within your laptop, with no clunky attachments or cables getting in the way.

We experienced no problems whats'ever with installation, or with swapping the drive from device to device. Simple and highly useful, this device will quickly leave users wondering how they got along without it.
