FREMONT, Cal.--SyQuest Technology said it has begun worldwide shipment of a new portable version of its EZ135 drive.
The EZ135 Parallel Port, priced at $249.95, is said to offer computer users the benefit of true plug and play mobility.
SyQuest, which has been in the removable hard disk and optical disc business for many years, came out with a similar device, the EZ135
. While it has an even faster transfer rate (in the SCSI version) of 2 MB/second, a lightning-fast access time of 13.5 ms, and a 135-MB-capacity cartridge, the drive itself is $240, and--according to reviewers--somewhat clumsy.
