Verbatim has announced the launch of its thinnest hard drive to date. At just 7mm thick, the Verbatim Store ‘n’ Go Ultra Slim HDD is one of the world’s slimmest portable hard drives – 20 per cent thinner than previous Store ‘n‘Go models.
Due to the 7mm thin internal hard drive inside, the slim profile of the Verbatim Store ‘n’ Go Ultra Slim Hard Drive makes it a beautiful companion to an Ultrabook computer. The Verbatim Ultra Slim Hard Drive has a 500GB capacity and provides a sleek storage extension or backup medium for a range of computing and consumer applications. It is available in black.
The Store ‘n’ Go Ultra Slim drive is equipped with a USB 3.0 port for super-fast data transfer – up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. The drives are immediately ready to be used on both PC and Mac and are FAT-32 pre-formatted. They are sold preloaded with Nero BackItUp Essentials software that allows PC users full system backup and restore functions, the ability to schedule automatic backup by date/time and an encrypted backup option with password control.
Verbatim’s Green Button energy-saving software reduces energy consumption and extends the drive’s life expectancy by automatically placing the drive into sleep mode whenever the user chooses this to happen. There are 3 ‘Sleep Setting’ options. Set the suspend mode to come in after 10 minutes of use, or by increments of 10 minutes up to 120 minutes. Set the drive to suspend immediately by double clicking the Green Button icon on the desktop, alternatively you can set the drive to ‘Never suspend the disk’.
