The Verbatim FireWire 400/USB is a 5400RPM external/portable hard-disc drive built for transferring and/or storing files. It offers two connections: USB 2.0 @ 480Mb/s or FireWire 400 @ 400Mb/s. And it requires no external power, as it is receives energy directly from a connected computer unit. It is backwards compatible with USB 1.1, but Verbatim recommends using the 400/USB only with the following operating systems: Windows 2000, XP, or Vista; Mac OS 9x or Mac OS X 10.1+. If any problems do occur, the FireWire 400/USB does at least host a 3 year limited warranty—more than enough time have any OEM errors fixed.
