Freecom Delivers ToughDrive Sport External HDD
Unlike traditional external HDDs, this one includes a handy loop in one corner for easy linkage with a nearby carrabeaner, and considering that it can withstand drops from up to two meters, we'd say you can even attach it to less-than-sturdy hooks. Of course, it'll also shake off adverse weather like it's no big thing, and the integrated USB cable ensues that you'll never have to bring along a seperate and equally waterproof connection cord.
The ToughDrive Sport includes room for up to 500GB of data, and the (PC-only) Turbo USB 2.0 connection promises transfer speeds of up to 30 percent faster than competing solutions for downloading or uploading data. Finally, the drive includes secure password protection whereby the user's password is encrypted and stored on a 256-bit hardware chip. It's available for shipping now for $219.
