When it comes to portable storage, you can be sure that Verbatim ranks pretty high up there – and one of the company’s latest releases, the Verbatim SuperSpeed USB 3.0 portable hard drive, will now be available in a couple of eye-popping colors – Caribbean Blue and Hot Pink. What a great way to usher in the summer with such vibrant, bright colors, no? I am guessing that Verbatim wants to deliver both style and function in a single device, hence splashing a couple of colors that normally don’t see the light of day in portable hard drives.
As for the amount of storage space, you might want to rethink all those downloads you make – after all, 500GB isn’t that much to go around these days. Good thing it is connected via USB 3.0, so make sure your computer has such a port to make full use of it. Transferring 500GB worth of data over USB 3.0 is going to be a snap, and with the ability to reliably back-up and transfer files anytime, anywhere, this might just be what you are looking for.
Verbatim claims that this is the “perfect way to save, store and share your favorite videos, photos, music and more”, although we might beg to differ simply because the 500GB of storage space is not going to go too far in this day and age. At the very least, it makes for a colorful accessory to your computing gear, don’t you think so?
The Verbatim SuperSpeed USB 3.0 portable hard drive will play nice with all USB ports of yore, and it will ship with Nero BackItUp & Burn Essentials software that delivers full system backup and restore functions, while you will also benefit from the ability to schedule automatic backup by date/time and an encrypted backup option with password control.
Whenever the drive is not in use, you can always use the Green Button software which offers three sleep/suspend settings to help save energy. The Formatter software is handy when you want to change the format of the drive from FAT32 to NTFS or HFS+ in a jiffy. Nice to know Verbatim decided to throw in a 7-year limited warranty with this $99.99 purchase.
