Iomega introduced a new, slimmer lineup of eGo portable hard drives that offer a lot of protection. The new drives are less than a half-inch thick and weigh less than seven ounces. They come wrapped in anodized aluminum shells and can be safely dropped from a height of 51 inches.
Iomega will sell an even more durable version of the drive starting in June. The 500GB eGo BlackBelt comes with a Power Grip Belt and Iomega’s Drop Guard Xtreme, which make it possible for the drive to survive a drop from over seven feet.
The drives are available in 250GB, 320GB and 500GB capacities. You get to choose between ruby red, silver (320GB only) and midnight blue (320GB) only.
