Backup your entire digital life at super speeds with the new Verbatim Store ‘n Save desktop USB 3.0 hard drive, now available from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC). Available in 1 and 2 terabyte (TB) models, the Store ‘n’ Save has plenty of space to keep all of your documents, videos, music, photographs and more. And with transfer speeds of up to ten times faster than USB 2.0, large files can be moved in a matter of seconds – no more waiting around for your backups to run.
The Store ‘n’ Save incorporates a number of handy features aimed at improving usability. With Nero’s BackItUp and Burn Essentials software included on the drive, users can quickly and easily backup files, burn CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray Discs, and sync files and folders.
Thanks to movable padded foot cushions and clever design, you can stand the Store ‘n’ Save upright, lay it on its side, or even stack several drives on top of each other, whichever is more convenient for your setup. The Store ‘n’ Save is designed to become a permanent feature on your workspace, so you always know where your important files are at all times.
“Another important feature is the Green Button Energy Saving Software, which is included on the drive. Whenever the drive is not in use for a specified time, it will automatically enter sleep mode. This saves energy since the drive is not constantly running, and also extends the life of the drive itself. The Store ‘n’ Save also comes standard with Verbatim Hard Drive Formatter software, so that the drive can be formatted for use with both Windows and Mac operating systems,” says Drika Wilkins, Verbatim Product Specialist at DCC
While the Store ‘n’ Save is optimised for use with USB 3.0 connections, it is compatible with USB 2.0. It features a rocker switch to power on and off and includes a 60cm USB cable as well as external AC power adaptor and cable. The drive itself measures 192mm x 118.6mm x 49mm (length x width x height) and weighs approximately 845 grams.
“This product is ideal for the home user who requires backup and external storage. It is not designed for portability but rather for convenience and versatility on your desktop. Power saving features allow users to just leave the hard drive connected, safe in the knowledge that the drive will power down into sleep mode whenever it is not in use,” Wilkins adds.
The Verbatim Store ‘n Save is available immediately from DCC, as well as all major retailers. The 1TB has a recommended retail price starting at R1599,00 and the 2TB from R1999,00 inclusive of V.A.T.
