Protable drive with dock from Imation

Up to 250GB

Imation has launched a new internal USB 2.0 dock for its Odyssey removable hard disk storage system as well as a new 250GB drive. This might not seem like a big deal, but the Odyssey system is targeting business users that need a solid and reliable removable storage solution. The hard drives can be encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption and Imation supplies EMC's Retrospect software which is known to be one of the best backup solutions on the market.



The hard drives are SATA based and the cartridge they're in is shock-protected and has been designed to withstand a drop from up to one meters height. There's an external USB 2.0 docking station already available and the new internal 3.5-inch USB 2.0 docking station means that you don't need to clutter your desk with an external dock.


The new 250GB drive will be available from next month for US$279.99. You can pick up the new internal dock for US$99.99 and it comes with the backup and encryption software, but no drive. You can find out more here
