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.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
