It's planned for release in the beginning of February this year and will be available in 320, 500 and 640GB storage capacities.
CLON is designed to be pocked sized and light at about 4.8oz; it's also rugged and should be resistant to fingerprints, scuffs and shocks. Automated backup software is already installed. CLON is currently available and provides 250, 320, 500 or 640GB versions to choose from.

InSight is last in the line of new portable USB hard drives and features an integrated LCD display that can permanently show a personalized name, even while disconnected from the computer. Also displayed is the amount of free space on the hard drive which is automatically calculated. Software included enables full system backup or restore functions as well as optional password protection. InSight comes in 320 and 500GB models.
