Drop It Like It’s Hot

What has a slick cherry-red paint job on the outside, a solid, powerful inside with lots of storage space, and some shiny chrome trim to round out the package with a touch of class?  No, I’m not talking about a 1959 Cadillac Coupe DeVille – it’s the new eGo portable hard drive from Iomega.  This 160GB, 2.5-inch USB-powered external hard drive delivers looks and functionality in a compact chassis.  Its included EMC Retrospect Express software allows for easy backups (on a schedule or on the fly), and this drive is protected by DropGuard technology, which keeps your drive save in collisions with the ground from as high as 51 inches.
