Distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC) earlier this year announced super fast backup speeds with their Verbatim Store ‘n’ Save USB 3.0 desktop hard drives. They have now added a massive 3TB version to this range – 3TB… that adds up to about 250, 000 songs, 204800 5MB pictures and 100 movies. That’s enough space to keep any media hungry home user occupied for almost four years.
Like its two smaller predecessors, this conveniently designed fast-machine is 100% USB 2.0 compatible, yet has transfer speeds of up to ten times faster than USB 2.0 when connected to a USB 3.0 host controller. But the Verbatim Store ‘n’ Save USB 3.0 desktop hard drives are more than just fast and furious – they are also incredibly user friendly.
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
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 – not much when you think of all the data it stores.
“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 – not to mention massive amounts of storage and /or backup space. 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 3TB USB3.0 Store ‘n Save is available immediately from DCC’s resellers with a recommended end user price starting from R1999,00 inclusive of V.A.T.
