As one of the most recognizable names in the storage industry, Verbatim doesn't need much of an introduction. Since its founding as Information Terminals Corporation in 1969, the company has been at the forefront in the development of data storage technology. Throughout the 1970's and 80's, Verbatim dominated the floppy disk market, joining industry leaders such as Shugart and Sony in introducing 5.25 and 3.5-inch floppy diskettes. By the early 1990's, Verbatim began to make the shift from analog to digital, establishing itself as one of the world's leading manufacturers of recordable CD, DVD and Blu-ray Disc media.

While best known for its recordable media, Verbatim offers an assortment of computer peripherals, including its own line of portable and desktop hard drives. One of the latest additions to their product lineup is the Store 'n' Go SuperSpeed USB 3.0. Available in bright colors like Caribbean Blue and Hot Pink, this USB powered portable hard drive sports a stylish, slim design and features a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface which allows transfer speeds up to 10x faster than USB 2.0. The Store 'n' Go also comes preloaded with Nero BackItUp & Burn Essentials as well as Verbatim's Green Button energy-saving software and is covered by a 7 year warranty.
