Plextor's portable drive with silicon skin

Plextor Plextor has introduced its latest weapon in the fight against hard drive accidents – a silicon skin.

The newly-launched PX-SP portable drives are covered by the silicon, which should add some protection from the inevitable bumps and knocks. The drives, available as 80GB and 120GB models and weighing just 170g, feature high speed USB 2.0 bus-powered connectivity, password protection (via PlexTools Professional HDD software) and a black carrying pouch – which I can only assume is for protection of your protective cover!

The drives will be available from April, priced around £100 for the 80GB drive and £155 for the 120GB model. Both prices exclude VAT.
