Zip drives, etc.

I am looking for a portable system for transfering info between machines
and for backing up directories, etc. I have a limited budget (about
$250.00) and have identified two candidates, recommended by folks in our
dept. of info tech. One is a Zip drive and the other is an Imation
LS-120. The later has several potential advantages: can read/write
standard 3.5 disks, has greater storage capacity, and is less expensive;
the former, however, is more widely used.
I assume some readers of this list will have experiences with one or the
other of these drives. Does anyone know of a compelling reason to
choose or avoid either drive?
Thanks for any advice.
