Logitec Precious Drive

Logitec has just revealed its Precious line of portable hard disks for security-conscious travelers. Each model of the steel-enclosed storage can be specially formatted with a second, hidden partition: without the relevant software and the right password, office documents and other sensitive files stored in the partition are effectively made invisible.

Logitec has also implemented a rare hardware eject button that lets the drive user unmount the drive from Mac OS X or Windows without having to do so in software. An idling mode saves power when connected to a laptop and port shutters protect the USB 2.0 port from damage and dirt. Available in mid-January, the Precious will ship in 80GB ($133), 120GB ($205), and 160GB ($268) versions.
