FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

Iomega eGo Camo Rugged Hard Drive


The adage you get what you pay for sometimes is actually true. Iomega has a rugged hard drives that is actually rugged. We all know that a “light” description on food doesn’t necessarily indicate that it truly is low in calories or fat, often just “light” in taste. Well the same advertising gimmicks are used for “ruggedized” computer equipment. Somebody paints it with a camo pattern and calls it rugged. In this case, the drive is apparently rugged in spite of the Camo paint job. Popular Mechanics tested several drives and the Iomega eGo survived a 15 foot drop, was run over by an SUV and continued to work. So for the rest of us who don’t plan on being quite that abusive, the drive is probably going to hold up very well in everyday use. 250gb USB portable drive for $85.00 at Staples is a pretty good deal.
