The Verbatim USB Desktop Hard Drive is an entry-level, external hard-disc drive that connects via USB 2.0 to both PCs and Macintoshes. Capable of transferring data at up to 480 Mb/s, this unit is basically an inexpensive, lightweight, and easy-to-handle secondary hard drive. It’s useful for both professional AND home users. Keep in mind that unlike many of its Verbatim peers, the USB Desktop HD does require AC power; thankfully, a power cable is included with the device. Also note that the unit comes with a 3 year warranty—plenty of time to have any pesky OEM errors/malfunctions fixed.
