Verbatim has announced the introduction of the Store’n’Go ALU Slim – a compact portable hard drive in a strong metal enclosure with USB 3.2 Gen 1 connection for data transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps.
Available in 1TB and 2TB capacities, the Store’n’Go ALU Slim storage device weighs 150g and is 0.9cm thick. Customers choosing the 2TB model can expect to typically store up to 4,000 films, 500,000 songs or 900,000 photos. With a brushed aluminium enclosure mirroring the stylish exterior of Macbooks, the Store’n’Go ALU Slim is available in silver, space grey and gold.
To enable Mac and PC owners to benefit from improved connectivity to USB-C and USB-A ports, the ALU Slim includes a Micro-B to USB-A cable and a USB-A to USB-C adapter. The drive is FAT32 formatted which allows it to be used interchangeably between Windows and Mac computers without reformatting. For content with files sizes larger than 4GB, software is supplied on the drive to reformat to HFS+ for Macs and NTFS for PCs.
The drive comes pre-installed with Nero Backup software for full system backup and restores functionality which allows users to schedule automatic backups. The HDD also has USB Rec&Play to allow the drive to act as a video recorder for TVs that support USB connectivity, allowing recording, playback and even pausing of live TV.
The Store’n’Go ALU Slim manufacturer's suggested retail price is €69.99 for 1TB and €89.99 for 2TB.
