Iomega Comes up With New 'Camo' eGo Portable Hard Drives

Whether you're someone with an adventuresome style and spirit, an avid participant in tough travel environments, or just want to be different from the crowd, the new Iomega eGo Camo Portable Hard Drive is a fast and fun notebook hard drive that delivers on form and function. Iomega's new eGo Camo Drive has a curved chassis covered by a woodland camouflage pattern that also comes with a black Iomega Power Grip band that not only looks cool but also provides extra durability.


The new eGo Camo Portable Hard Drive also packs a lot of storage capability - the 250GB 2.5-inch drive is USB-powered for simple operation (no power supply required), and it comes with EMC Retrospect HD software for automatic backups, scheduled backups, or on-demand backups. With Iomega's new 250GB eGo Camo Portable Hard Drive, users can carry up to 1,000,000 photos, over 4,625 hours of music or 375 hours of video with confidence and a look that no other portable hard drive offers today.

Iomega's patented DropGuard technology protects the eGo drive from accidental damage caused by drops of up to 51 inches (129 cms), compared to portable hard drives from other manufacturers that claim drops of less than 40 inches. With the new Power Grip band on the eGo Camo Drive, this eGo portable hard drive can handle drops of up to 60 inches (152 cms), a real benefit and advantage for adventurous users.

"Unlike mundane, run-of-the-mill looking branded portable hard drives, Iomega's eGo Portable Hard Drive line features a palette of bright colors that knocks the socks off anything else in the market," said Ralf San Jose, global product manager for HDD products, Iomega Corporation. "With the new eGo Camo Portable Hard Drive, Iomega adds a style of adventure and intrigue to the eGo color kaleidoscope. No self-respecting 'camo' lover will be without it. Expect to see more exciting additions like the new Camo to the Iomega eGo drive line in the future."

Compatibility
Iomega's new eGo Camo Portable Hard Drive is compatible with Windows Vista (all versions), Windows 2000, Professional/XP Home/XP Professional/XP Professional x64, and with Mac OS X 10.1.5 or above. A USB 2.0 host connection is required for USB 2.0 speeds.

Price and Availability
The new Iomega 250GB eGo Camo Portable Hard Drive USB 2.0 is now available worldwide for $149.95. (Pricing is estimated U.S. retail.) The product is available from online retailers, VARs, resellers and select retailers, as well as at iomega.com.Source: Iomega
