Iomega has released the eGo USB 2.0 Camo portable hard drive, a camouflaged patterned addition to Iomega’s line of stylish and sturdy portable hard drives.

The eGo Camo is designed to be 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 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.

Iomega says that its patented DropGuard technology protects the eGo drive from accidental damage caused by drops of up to 51 inches (129cm), 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.

Iomega’s 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. It costs £85 plus VAT.
