The Verbatim PowerBay Single Drive solution allows professionals a flexible way to backup and secure data from a PC or server. The removable cartridge exchange system allows users to make multiple backup sets at various times (for example, weekly backups). The rugged cartridges can be safely transported and stored off-line at a secure location. Supporting up to 2TB of storage, the PowerBay single drive can be used as a higher performance and reliable alternative to tape drive backup systems. The PowerBay single drive supports eSATA for high speed transfer and USB for wider compatibility. The eSATA port is particularly suitable for high speed mirroring of a PowerBay NAS system.
Solid drive. Looks cool. Automatic power mode is useless.
This review is from: Verbatim 97192 2 TB External Hard Drive - Black
Pros: I'll give it some points for pleasant aesthetics and (so far) a solid drive. The build quality is good, it's got plenty of space, it's as fast as you'd expect, and in the 48 hours I've been using it nonstop it hasn't died.
Cons: More than anything, the drive's automatic power feature is useless. It sounds cool -- having the drive start up when your computer starts -- but the power is linked to the locking mechanism for the drive. If you so much as touch the face of the drive or move the enclosure, it automatically cycles the power. I use this drive for an external Windows 7 installation, so that's fatal. The easy fix is to disable automatic power, but it's still a dissapointment.
