If you are cramming all those movies, songs, photos and other digital content onto your PC’s hard drive and it is stretched to capacity, Verbatim’s latest USB 3.0 desktop hard drive will be your best friend. Distributed by Drive Control Corporation (DCC) and available through select retailers and resellers, this external hard drive delivers the main benefits of 3 Terabytes (TB) of hard disk space and high speed thanks to its USB 3.0 interface – providing ten times the speed of USB 2.0.

Says Drika Wilkins, Verbatim Product Specialist at DCC, “Many of us are all too familiar with the length of time it takes to save digital content to an external source such as a hard drive. Verbatim has addressed this with the introduction of its super speed USB 3.0 desktop hard drive with a huge capacity of 3TB, allowing you to store much, much more content on your external drive rather than taking up disk space on your PC.”

You might ask well what if I only have a USB 2.0 connection on my PC? Fortunately this external hard drive is backwards compatible with a USB 2.0 connection and also offers the option of installing a host card into your PC, providing two USB 3.0 ports.

But there is more that a huge capacity and super fast speeds to this hard drive. You can also use this drive to backup your essential data on your PC. Backup is simplified with Nero BackItUp and Burn Essentials software that comes standard with this hard drive. This software includes nifty functions such as auto backup scheduling meaning you never have to remember to do those essential backups in the event of you losing all your data. Furthermore, you can burn files to CD or DVD and also have the option to recover damaged files with Nero RescueAgent.

Adds Wilkins, “Although this hard drive packs a punch, it is surprisingly easy on energy consumption with its Green Button energy saving software. This smart technology reduces energy consumption by suspending the hard drive from spinning when not in use.”

Verbatim’s UsB 3.0 desktop 3TB hard drive is available from select retail outlets with an approximate recommended retail price of between R1,799.00 and R1,899.00 inclusive of V.A.T.
