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.

Iomega's patented DropGuard(TM) 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.
