Verbatim Quad Hard Drives

Verbatim chose the second day of 2009 to introduce its first Desktop Hard Drive models with four interfaces. The simply titled Quad Interface drives carry both FireWire 400 and 800 ports as well as external SATA II and USB connectors, rendering them compatible with most any computer and letting users pick the fastest possible storage option. Bandwidth peaks at up to 3Gbps through the eSATA option.

All drives support either Mac OS X or Windows, though only Windows users are given third-party backup software from Nero to automate the processes normally handled by Time Machine on Mac OS X Leopard systems.

Drives are shipping now in 500GB and 1TB capacities at prices of $180 and $250 respectively. Verbatim doesn't have any immediate plans to discontinue or change prices for its dual interface drives.
