Verbatim 500GB InSight USB Portable Hard Drive with "Always On" Display
9 December 2009
Conclusion: The Verbatim InSight is a nice looking drive, it’s thin so you can easily slip it into the pocket of your laptop or netbook bag and take it with you. The addition of the LCD capacity display is a nice touch, but it’s more of a gimmick than anything really. Yes it’s useful, but not really needed. The InSight does have good read performance, but it falls a bit short in terms of write performance.
Pros: LCD Display for instant access to remaining capacity, Looks nice, Can customize the name
Cons: Not the best performance, Glossy plastic attracts dust and fingerprints, Long in size
Excerpt: Verbatim is better known for its range of blank optical discs than it is for hard disks, but the Insight 500GB is actually the latest in the company's long line of portable disks. If you have more than a couple of external hard disks, figuring out what is on each one and how much storage space is available usually involves plugging each disk into your computer to find out.
Summary: This is a very thin 500GB portable USB hard drive that displays the free space available even when no power is available (or even connected to a PC). Could this unit be the way that all external hard drive s will become?
Excerpt: Product: Verbatim InSight Hard Drive (500GB) Supplier: Verbatim MSRP: $159.99 Find Lowest Price @ PriceGrabber Author: Bill Date: February 16, 2010 Verbatim computer peripherals are well known, and I have used their computer mice and recordable disks for years. This will be the first hard drive from Verbatim that I have ever used, and it offers a new feature: an always-on “cholesteric” display.
Pros: Light–weight and portable drive, Sleek looks, Price is average for the capacities, Unheard-of warranty: 7 years!
Cons: None; the drive speed is typical for bus-powered drives, and the always-on display is neither good nor bad… just cool-looking., Wait time of a few seconds before mounting/unmounting when plugging in/ejecting the drive (for the display to scan and refresh)
