Verbatim's USB 3.0 Store 'n' Go external drives play nice with magnets, your data
We're guessing from the photo up there that Verbatim is saying your data is safe even if you happen to drop a magnetic paperclip dispenser on it. That's cool, because we happen to have one of those sitting right here on the desk, and for too long we've lived in fear of the thing toppling over and wiping the bits right off of our drives. But, the real talking point here is the interface: Verbatim's first USB 3.0 external storage. It'll be available in your choice of three sizes, with 500 and 750GB models shipping later this month and a 1TB monster coming in November. Naturally they're also backwards compatible with last-gen USB but will surely cost well more than those drives who are exclusively down with 2.0. How much more? That we just don't know right now.

Verbatim® Americas LLC, the information storage pioneer, is "backing up" data up to ten times faster than before with this month's release of the Store 'n' Go® SuperSpeed USB 3.0 compact portable hard drive. The brand-new portable hard drive – available 500GB & 750GB in October and 1TB in November – provides the fastest possible USB connectivity, letting consumers backup content in just seconds and take the drive, and their files, with them wherever they go.
"We're excited to introduce the Store 'n' Go, the first portable hard drive in Verbatim's USB 3.0 collection, and allow consumers to experience a significant improvement in data transfer speeds that will let them complete their tasks in a fraction of the time," said Charles Klinker, Verbatim's Director of Marketing, HDD Products. "With the Store 'n' Go, users can seamlessly enter into the new generation of USB 3.0 and safely and reliably share, store and back-up their data anytime, anywhere."

The new USB 3.0 bus-powered portable hard drive is backwardly compatible with USB 2.0 ports, ensuring that all of the user's content is completely accessible. Available in a sleek piano-black finish, the unit includes Nero BackItUp & Burn software for Windows, a free trial of Norton Online Backup (5GB) and Verbatim's industry-leading 7-year limited warranty.
Earlier this year, Verbatim introduced the 3.5" desktop USB 3.0 hard drive, an ideal solution for both home- and office-based users who want to transfer large files with the newest and quickest technology available.
