Summary: After initially setting up a password, formatting the drive and transferring data to it the drive allowed password access about half a dozen times before some hardware/software failure made the Privacy Zone inaccessible. Contacted Verbatim support and was told to download and re-install the software. Of course that requires reformatting the drive and loosing all data stored on it. Fortunately, the information was still recoverable elsewhere at the time.
Summary: I ordered this SSD based on four criteria: price, capacity, read MBps, and write MBps. The first drive I received was DOA, so I needed to do an exchange, but amazon is always great about that. So far I'm satisfied with this drive, however there are a couple things that I find odd: 1. The drive is bulky for an SSD; I had to use the bottom screw holes on the drive when mounting it to my Thinkpad W510's hard drive tray. 2.
Summary: It is however more compact than some others, only not as reliable or durable
Pros: Fast, stores what you need and want it to
Cons: After 2 or maybe even 3 years (I have a similar model in red) The slider doesnt lock so as to insert into a port can be a pain. The connector itself is also coming out of its sleeve and it is about to split
Summary: The red retractable and the blue PRO model Verbatim flash drives have proven to be very fast. So, when I saw this new blue Verbatim model show up for about $30 bucks, I thought I'd buy one and see how the speed compares to other flash drives. I was a little disappointed after speed testing it with "ATTO Disk Benchmark" (download it, it's free).
Pros: Retractable, no cap to lose.
Cons: 11 MB/s write, 24 MB/s read. Not near as fast as the Verbatim retractable red models (8GB & 16GB), or the Muskin 8GB & 16GB flash drives.
Summary: This is a good product at a very reasonable price, but I have had problems with it not linking to the computer. I have the computer set to back up to the drive each day, but sometimes it has not backed up because the drive has failed to connect. I have had to take out the USB cable and reconnect it a number of times to get it to work.
Summary: Bought this to use with my laptop back and forth to work. No problem plugging it into Win7 recognised first time, and files transferred without any issues. However in the 6 months I have owned it I have discovered that the cable is very temperamental, and just the slightest movement of the laptop or drive will cause it to drop out and then reconnect, which means that if I am watching something, or listening to music, it stops, dropbox needs to be manually reconnected...
Summary: Hello, I got this item a couple of days ago. The box contains the hard drive and a USB 2.0 cable plus a paper manual. Inside the hard drive there it is pre installed a manual in many many languages (PDF) and 2 softwares (windows only). I am not sure about the software utility since I use mac. It comes pre formated for windows and mac. It is very light and looks kinda fragile. Only a small blue light tell us that it is working and connected.
