Here lately, Verbatim
has issued more optical media solutions than
external hard drives, but the company's still all about storage
evidenced today with the introduction of its SureFire line of portable
HDDs, all of which include FireWire 800 and USB 2.0 sockets.
Each of the drives are classically and simply styled, doing without
flash and sticking to the bare necessities. Thankfully, Verbatim also
added a dash of "rugged," so you don't have to be scares to haul these
out on the road with you. Available in capacities of 250GB, 320GB and
500GB, these palm-sized drives are fully compatible with Windows and
Mac computers and get all the power they need from the USB 2.0 or
FireWire 800 port.
Within, there's room for a 2.5" 5400RPM drive with 8MB of cache, and it
also ships with a black protective carrying case. The new line weighs
0.41 pounds and measures 3.13" x 5.0" 0.66"; they can be ordered right
now for $109.99 (250GB), $139.99 (320GB) and $179.99 (500GB).
