Verbatim InSight portable USB hard drive
Verbatim has long been a trusted name when it comes to portable storage – remember how their line of floppies were superior over all the others simply because of the Teflon coating that they offered? I certainly bought that hook, line and sinker, and it is nice to see the company moving on with the times by offering a new InSight portable USB hard drive. Coming in a sleek, durable enclosure that has been enhanced with a premium piano black finish, Verbatim ensures you will tote your data in style while offering choices of 320GB and 500GB worth of portable storage space. TO make matters even more interesting, Verbatim has also included an Always On display that will display the drive name and available free space in real time, even when the drive has been disconnected from the computer which it has been plugged in.
Each purchase of the 320GB and 500GB capacity hard drives will be accompanied by Nero BackItUp Essentials, covering a whole lot of ground when it comes to having a complete data protection solution. With Nero BackItUp Essentials, you will be able to benefit from a full, automatic system backup alongside restore functions. It is a snap to use, where the software will help guide the user to set up scheduled backups by date and/or time, where even newbies are able to do so without calling for help. Other security features include data encryption with password control options for added peace of mind.
Tipping the scales at less than 6 ounces, the Verbatim InSight portable hard drive measures 6″ x 3.4″ x 0.63″, holding a 2.5″ hard drive inside that spins at 5400rpm while featuring 8MB of cache memory to optimize performance. It will be completely bus-powered, hence doing away with the need for another power supply. Compatible with Windows Vista, XP or 2000 and Mac OS 9.x or higher systems, you can pick up the 320GB and 500GB models for $119.99 and $149.99, respectively.
