Designer hard drives

Verbatim is now launching special designer editions of its external 2.5” hard drives. The 2.5” HDD with 500GB storage capacity as well as the 320GB HDD will be presented in five eye-catching colours – red, blue, pink, green or metallic black.

State-of-the-art technology and a stylish appearance are the hallmarks of Verbatim’s 2.5” hard drives. The slimline design, coupled with its weight of just 170grams, means it is light to carry around and, moreover, it fits perfectly in the hand and slips into any handbag or jacket – convenience personified for those continually on the move.

“We believe our new designer range of colour hard drives attracts attention with its good looks and combined with cutting-edge technology it addresses the current demand, says Manny Cross, Manager – Sub Sahara Africa at Verbatim.

High-tech meets an eye-catching design

The five colour models has been chosen to reflect the latest colours offered by laptop manufacturers.
