Verbatim launches two new quad interface desktop hard disk drives

Offers Mac and PC users universal connectivity

By CBR Staff Writer

Verbatim Americas, a provider of digital storage services, has launched two new quad interface desktop hard disk drives with capacities of 500 Gb and 1Tb.

According to the company, the pro audio/video-grade storage and backup services offer Mac and PC users universal connectivity with plug and play support for all four of the interfaces: USB 2.0, FireWire 400, FireWire 800 and external Serial ATA II (eSATA II).

With these connection options and the equivalent of 1000Gb of storage backed by Verbatim’s reputation for reliability, the new external drives are ideal for audio, video, digital photography and music professionals as well as graphics applications where capacity, performance and reliability are essential, said Verbatim.

Verbatim’s new quad-interface desktop hard disk drives (HDDs) weigh 3.3 lbs. and measure 8.7 in. X 5.9 in. X 1.5 in., making them easy to transport from one desk to another and requiring minimal desk space when connected to a desktop system. Housed in sleek yet durable black aluminum cases, the 3.5 inches drives feature a 7200rpm spindle speed and 32Mb of cache memory to optimize performance. A silent cooling fan is also included.

Charles Klinker, director of marketing for HDD products at verbatim, said: Our new 500 Gb and 1Tb desktop HDDs offer many advantages for editing and storing high-density applications, compared to using two or three smaller HDDs.
