Product came in a timely manner, and is functioning ...
2 August 2014
Summary: Product came in a timely manner, and is functioning well. Backup takes about 5 minutes, where the Seagate model we had for 2 years was taking about 20-30 minutes! Will probably have this one for a while with the 7-year warrantee.
Summary: I've read comments regarding two partitions issue. I've perused myself for many hours to solve it until I stumbled into that software, already included on your HDD. That "Verbatim Mode Switch Tool" is a breeze to use. Open it, click "Start", use "Standard mode" but do not forget to CHECK "Switch mode". Of course, there's a disclaimer that you will loose all your data. Operation will take less than a minute.
Excerpt: Got this and within a short time needed to replace it. Replacement broke down and attempting to replace it was a pain and not successful. Got stuck with a piece of junk that not worth even as a paperweigh.
Summary: The real test of a product comes when it fails! We had a problem with this drive after some months of use - it was no longer recognized by Windows 7 machines. We emailed support and they got back to us very promptly. When their solution didn't work, they quickly provided a replacement drive. I was impressed - their 7 year warranty means something!
Really great piece of hardware - Verbatim 2.0 External Hard Drive
4 October 2013
Summary: Great system, works with or without the included software. I find this external hard drive easy and straightforward to use. It is not a complicated system, especially if you just choose to "Run Backp" to the hard drive instead of trying to do it using the Nero software. I found the Nero software confusing. Don't get me wrong, the Nero software works fine, but I prefer to just use my computer's backup capabilities to back up my computer.
Summary: I cant stress how hard it is to find a large hard drive that can be formatted to FAT32, almost any external that is over 500 gb's is formatted in NTFS and cannot be reformatted to FAT32 without special programs etc. most can be reformatted to exFAT but not FAT32. So for me, a 2tb drive that can hold all my movies and more importantly be read by Xbox's and PS3's allows me to easily turn my gaming console into an awesome movie player.
Useless for backups, not heavy enough to serve as boat anchor

Summary: The box of this Verbatim 1 TB Store 'n' Save USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive, Black (97579) looks nice but the Nero BackitUp&Burn software is useless and does not let me find out whether the drive works or does anything. Trying to install the Nero software from the Verbatim drive on my computer produces the message: "Error 26.204. An internal error occurred while checking the serial number! OK".
