Verbatim 500GB USB 3.0 Store ‘n’ Go Portable Hard Drive Review
4 May 2012
Excerpt: Since 1969, Verbatim has been providing innovative data storage solutions, and to this day they remain one of the most known names in the industry. Verbatim recently announced a series of portable hard drives called the Store ‘n’ Go.
Excerpt: Verbatim is a brand most will be familiar with for their optical media; you can find spindles of Verbatim DVD-Rs and CD-Rs on the shelves of just about every electronics aisle in the country. Their name is built, more or less entirely, on media for physically shuttling bits from place to place.
Summary: There are certainly many who do not want to go out and buy an empty enclosure along with a drive, just to assemble it at home. With preconfigured external hard drives you do not only have the peace of mind in terms of warranty, but also the true Plug'n'Play or buy and connect aspect.
Pros: Excellent to reasonable price (depending on color option), Good USB 2.0 performance, Nice and compact, Nero BackItUp & Burn Essentials included on the drive, "Go Green" Application to control standby of drive, Loads of different color options, Informative packaging
Cons: Only 2 years warranty - retail Samsung HM321HI drive comes with three., No frills drive, USB connector on the side of device

Cons: Small makes it easier to misplace – that’s why a lanyard attachment is included
Conclusion: Ultimately I think the Ceedo software, after a bit of polish, could be fantastic. It would be even better when paired with a small USB Flash drive.

Summary: The 4 GB Verbatim Store 'n Go USB Hard Drive is an interesting execution on the "plug in my computer wherever I am" concept, but it's not a solution for everyone. This review goes into detail covering Ceedo, the micro-operating system that is included on the drive.

Excerpt: The ability to fit large amounts of data in your pocket is a something many of us have begun to take for granted. At the same time, the amount of data that can fit in a very small space continues to rise, with Verbatim offering a 4 GB version of its Store 'n' Go hard drive.
Conclusion: I was very impressed with the Verbatim 256MB USB Drive. With fast transfer rates, very small size and easy to use security software, this drive got my attention. If asked, I would never have guessed there could be so many differences between different USB drives.
