Iomega Shows Iomega Skin Portable Hard Drives

Iomega today announced the launch of Iomega Skin branded Hard Drives, three different USB 2.0 500GB portable hard drives with original designs and colors.

In conjunction with the popular Skin Industries, one of the leading alternative sports fashion brands in America today, Iomega's new Skin Hard Drives feature three compact personal storage models with custom Skin-branded graphics. The Radical Skin Hard Drive has a retro Skin-branded printed logo design on a black top with a vibrant yellow base. The Red Hot Skin Hard Drive features a Skin Swipe logo printing on a red top with a black base. The Knock Out Skin Hard Drive has a Skin Gothic logo on a silver top with a black base.

All three of the new Skin Hard Drives feature Iomega's standard Drop Guard protection, which helps guard the drive from accidental drops of up to 51 inches on to industrial carpet. Included free of charge is the Iomega Protection Suite, a one-stop portfolio of backup and antivirus software. Iomega's new Skin Hard Drives include a 3-year limited warranty (with registration).

The new Iomega Skin Hard Drives are available today, $119.99 each, in the U.S. at select retailers, etailers and at www.iomega.com. The new drives will also be available next month in select European markets.
