Verbatim Announces New 8GB Store 'n' Go Retractable USB Drive for Mac OS X Desktop and Notebook Systems

Provides Instant Access to Non-sensitive Data While Sensitive Data Remains Protected

Macworld Conference & Expo 2009Booth #2617

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Verbatim® Americas, LLC, an industry leader in the development and marketing of high-quality products for storing, moving and using digital content, announced today at Macworld a Mac OS X compatible 8GB Store ‘n’ Go™ USB Drive, the latest addition to its award-winning Store ‘n’ Go™ line of USB Drives. Customer driven, Verbatim offers the new Store ‘n’ Go drive with two convenience features with that clearly differentiate it from similar USB drives on the market. With the retractable design, the new Mac drive’s USB connectors are fully protected without needing a cap that can be easily misplaced. The 8GB Store ‘n’ Go USB Drive also provides “intelligent” security—users can freely access and share data in the general ‘public’ area without having to log in but have password controlled access to the drive’s private zone from any OS X-equipped Mac. A write-protect feature is included to prevent accidental erasure of data in both areas.

Borrowing from the tagline on the new Store ‘n’ Go for Mac pack, Mark Rogers, Verbatim Product Manager, explained that the “Security that works the way you do™” is a key feature of the drive. “Unlike other USB drives, it doesn’t force you to log in just to use it. It provides basic security features when you need them, but they are not in your way when you don't.”

In addition to giving users the capacity they need to store entire libraries of personal entertainment files, the drive’s high-capacity is ideal for videographers and photographers who want to collaborate with others on post-production projects and quickly move work from one system to another. A blue LED light signals when data is being transferred. And since the USB flash drive acts like a portable hard drive, users can add and delete files as many times as they like.

A true Plug and Play device, the Store ‘n’ Go Drive is easily connected to a Mac OS X host computer through a USB port of a desktop or notebook computer. The system automatically recognizes the drive as a new removable drive as soon as it is connected. Featuring a solid-state design (no moving parts) and non-volatile flash memory, the drive will retain data for 10 years or more. With this mobility and reliability, road warriors, students and commuters can easily carry their data with them and can connect the drive to any Mac OS X computer through the USB port when they arrive at their destination.

Measuring only about 2˝ inches long and weighing less than half an ounce, Verbatim’s 8GB Store ‘n’ Go Retractable USB Drive features a modern, compact design that fits easily in a pocket or purse.

Availability, Pricing

The Verbatim Store ‘n’ Go Retractable 8GB USB Drive for Mac OS X users will be available late January through Verbatim retail and distribution channels with an MSRP of US$59.99. The complete package includes the 8GB Store ‘n’ Go USB Drive, pre-loaded password security software, a Quick Start Guide and a Verbatim Limited Lifetime warranty.
