'Jersey Shore' aesthetic meets portable storage

Iomega is partnering with "sports fashion" brand Skin Industries to bring consumers a new line of graphically enhanced external hard drives that kind of look like they belong on the set of "Jersey Shore."

Iomega is partnering with "sports fashion" brand Skin Industries to bring consumers a new line of graphically enhanced external hard drives that kind of look like they belong on the set of "Jersey Shore."

You get your choice of three styles (Radical, Knock Out, and Red Hot), and the 500GB drives are cut from the same Iomega eGo design cloth that earned our CNET Editors' Choice award for fast transfer speeds. They also come with a generous three-year warranty and Drop Guard technology that protects the drive from up to 4 feet in the air.

You get an added bonus of Iomega's Protection suite that includes EMC's Retrospect Express Backup software, Iomega QuikProtect, and a free one-year subscription to Trend Micro's Internet Security.

The Iomega Skin hard drives are available now for $120 each.
