Verbatim Introduces New USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Line

Verbatim's new portable hard drive line is super fast with USB 3.0.

Verbatim's new Store 'n' Go SuperSpeed USB 3.0 hard drives should be just what their name purports them to be: really fast, thanks to USB 3.0.

The new hard drives will come in three capacities: 500 GB and 700 GB will be available in October, and 1 TB will be available in November. The new drives are, of course, backwards-compatible with USB 2.0 ports for those of you who haven't yet upgraded your computers to USB 3.0.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 features a 5Gbps data rate, which is significantly faster than Hi-Speed USB 2.0's rate of 480Mbps. For example, a 25GB movie will only take 70 seconds to transfer using a USB 3.0 port, as opposed to 13.9 minutes with a USB 2.0 port.

All capacities of the new Store 'n' Go hard drives will come bundled with Nero BackItUp & Burn software (Windows), a 5GB trial of Norton Online Backup, and a 7-year limited warranty. At the moment, there's no word on a price point.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
