jeremie, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: Hello, I lost 59 giga bytes. The hard drive file system switch to RAW system file, that no computer can open anymore. I tried many process to get my data back (testdisk, file recovery, MSDos prompt command, many forums, Linux backup, MacOS.....). Basically all my datas are lost. Verbatim customer support, after 17 mails and software procedure to recover my datas, stay unable to help me. Better you don't buy this item.

Terrible Warranty

Evan Jones, Amazon
12 March 2014
  • Summary: I want to make everyone who purchases data storage devices from Verbatim knows the experience I’ve had before the purchase a Verbatim product. I purchased a Verbatim “SuperSpeed USB 3.0 1TB” portable hard drive in November of 2012. The other day I was using it and when I plugged the USB cord into the hard drive, the inlet fell into the hard drive.

Another Samsung HDD grilled after 1 year

T. Dierig "tad", Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: One of my 2 Verbatim Store'N'Gos 1TB consisted of a fast but cool Samsung HDD. They are both being in unregular use as a backup medium. Now after 14 months and about 100 hours of use the Samsung locked up during a backup session after 2 hours. SMART seys the reason was "heat". As this is the 4th Samsung HDD failing in one of my PCs and no other manufacturers HDD failed here before, I must strongly rate Samsung HDDs as "awfully unreliable".

died recently

daemon "DMen", Amazon
8 August 2013
  • Summary: Purchased Sept 27,2012, and got it in Oct. It stopped working recently. Unfortunately there were some files which weren't backed up. The drive when plugged in would spin up and then stop - during spin-up the drive never registered under Computer drop down menu. Verbatim is a manufacturers that have a 7 year warranty. I'll find out if this true since I plan to try to return to Verbatim.

  • Summary: Hey Walmart, there is a difference between a 'portable' hard drive and an 'external (desktop)' hard drive. The box on this item clearly states External Desktop. An External or Desktop HD is not built for portability and will have it's own power cord. A portable HD usually costs a little more and gets its power from the USB and has more protection around the cover. I did return this product to a Walmart store.

Hard Drive Died after only 2 uses.

David, Amazon
1 October 2012
  • Summary: This hard drive died after only 2 uses. Do not trust this drive with important data. After the second use it would not be recognized on any of 5 different P.C.'s I tried it on. It even briefly locks up Windows XP or Vista on each of the machines trying to access it. Terrible awful drive.
