Verbatim has launched a new line of portable combo FW800/USB2 HDDs available in capacities of 250GB, 320GB and 500GB.
The company says the rugged palm-sized FireWire drives combine power, convenience and reliability with a compact, sleek design that can be plugged into almost any computer.
The bus-powered drives are equipped with one USB 2.0 port, and one FireWire 800 port to deliver high-speed transfer rates of up to 800MB/sec. for FireWire 800 connections and 480MB/sec. when connected with USB 2.0 – without requiring an AC power adapter.
Ready to use right out of the box, all cables are included.
Housed in a durable black aluminum-extruded case with a fingerprint-resistant matte finish, the 2.5" drive features a 5400rpm spindle speed and 8MB of cache memory to optimize performance.
A black protective carrying case designed to match the sleek lines of the SureFire HD is also included.
Verbatim’s new SureFire portable HDDs weigh 0.41 lbs. (186g), and measure 3.13" x 5.0" 0.66" (81mm x 128mm x 15mm), making them easy to transport from system to system and place to place.
The suggested retail pricing is USD $109.99 for the 250GB version, USD $139.99 for the 320GB version and USD $179.99 for the 500GB drive.
The complete package includes a SureFire hard drive, FireWire 800-800, FireWire 800-400, USB 2.0 and USB power cable for systems limiting power over the USB port, a carrying case and a user guide.
