for over 40 years!

A Greener Shade Of Blue

Consumers choose to spend their money in more eco-conscious ways, and Verbatim gives them the option to get high-tech without being highly wasteful. Verbatim’s new packaging for USB drives and Memory Cards is greener than ever. Our new package design reduces the amount of plastic used by up to 93.9% on Memory Cards and 90.9% on USB drives by substituting paperboard material for the plastic clamshell. Now, the only plastic part of our packaging surrounds the product, thus optimizing the use of renewable resources and keeping un-necessary plastic out of landfills.

Material Components
The paperboard structure is MWV Natralock™ material. This offers greater sustainability and also greater security and safety than a traditional clamshell package. A tear-resistant layer requires scissors to open but won’t cut the consumer with sharp edges.
These packages offer additional benefits that are a side-effect of going green. They are designed to withstand over 25-lbs. of downward pressure without tearing--which also ensures the packaging cannot be torn off a display hook. Verbatim used this redesign opportunity to eliminate the plastic case previously included with Memory Cards. Since most consumers discarded the case, all unnecessary elements have been eliminated.

More Green Packaging Benefits
Verbatim now adds an icon to packaging meeting our “More Green” standards; we want to highlight the environmental benefits of this new packaging structure to customers and the industry alike. Look for the “More Green” logo on Verbatim products as well as the specific benefits on the back.

  • Plastic reduction up to 93.9%*
  • Overall packaging weight reduction up to 54.7%
  • Almost double the freight efficiency
  • Material health increase of up to 274% (carcinogen material reduction by gram)
  • Safer for consumers - No sharp edges!

I've had my Verbatim Store 'n' Go Micro 8GB drive for over six months (I bought it before they renamed it TUFF 'N' TINY) and haven't had any problems with it. It has been a reliable, sturdy, and fast storage device, and looks great on my keychain. It's always fun when I plug it in someone else's computer and they go "What the heck is that?" "Did you say EIGHT gig?" "Must've been expensive!"

I was a little worried about buying from a brand name that is not necessarily trusted in the field of flash memory, but my fears were allayed when I plugged it in for the first time and it identified itself as a "Kingston Store 'n' Go", which leads me to believe this device is the product of some collaboration between Kingston and Verbatim, or is an entirely Kingston product that has simply been purchased and rebranded by Verbatim. Either way, I feel better about the device knowing Kingston's name is associated with it in some way.

Just for kicks, I recently ran my drive through its paces using the Xbench benchmarking program for Mac. It clocked at the following speeds:

Uncached Write: 5.26 MB/sec [4K blocks]
Uncached Write: 5.22 MB/sec [256K blocks]
Uncached Read: 4.38 MB/sec [4K blocks]
Uncached Read: 31.43 MB/sec [256K blocks]

Uncached Write: 0.03 MB/sec [4K blocks]
Uncached Write: 1.00 MB/sec [256K blocks]
Uncached Read: 3.27 MB/sec [4K blocks]
Uncached Read: 29.86 MB/sec [256K blocks]

Update: I've now had my Tuff 'n' Tiny for nearly a year and still continue to love every minute of owning it. It takes a licking and just keeps ticking. If I could add a sixth star to this review, I would.

Another update: Hm, it seems I spoke a little too soon.

I really should have listened to the negative reviews.

I work on both a Mac and a PC (windows nt & vista). It's 6am and I've spent a few minutes getting about 2Gb of documents together to work on at the office on my pc and was MID transfer when the tuff-n-tiny suddenly ejected itself.

This has absolutely never happened to me before. No, it didn't get jostled, there wasn't an earthquake, the flash drive was in my laptop and I was looking at the transfer progress waiting for the estimated time to process. everything was absolutely still--and voila, self eject complete with warning message that a device had been improperly removed.

I then actually removed the drive from the computer, reinserted it now I get the error message 'The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer'.

I've had it opened and out of the package for all of 10 minutes. And already-a major issue.

update--thought i'd reformat the drive on my PC at work...no dice. the laptop doesn't even register that there's a device in the drive.

Verbatim's getting a call from me then the damn thing's going back to the seller/Amazon.

I'm clocking write speeds of around 17MB/sec and read speeds of around 30MB/sec, both sustained. It's 'tuff', it's definately tiny, AND it's fast!

Update (04/22/12):
This thing still works. I am now using it as a secondary drive to my Xbox Slim and it doesn't protrude like the bigger drives.

This gadget scores a lot in coolness. It is so light & tiny. It comes with a matching larnyard if you want to hang it in your keychain. The USB drive is color coded as follows: purple for 8g, green for 4g and orange for a 2g. It looks like just a solid piece of plastic. Looks pretty tough as indicated by its name. I love its simple and minimalistic design. I have own a few flash drives or pen drives that I used for my keychain, but either they are big and awkward, but also the caps always get lost in the process. Now, this don't have a cap so there is nothing to lose. The contacts are located on the other side and is completely exposed to achieve its small size. You can plug it either way but will only work one way. But no worry, it will not damage the drive if you plug it the wrong way. It will just do nothing.

This will be my primary drive that I carry everyday. I have already loaded them up with all of my fav apps.

Primary Apps:
Ad-Aware - anti-spyware, AVG Antivirus - antivirus, Firefox Mozilla - browser, FoxitReader - PDF reader
IZArc - completely free zip app, Open Office - office suite, Spybot Search & Destroy - another anti-spyware

Secondary Apps:
Audacity - excellent audio prog, Crap Cleaner, Crossloop - remote computing, CutePDFWriter - PDF write
Daemon Tools - virtual drive, Dvdshrink - back up your DVDs, Gimp - similar to Photoshop, ITunes, Irfanview - Image viewer, Launchy - similar to Quicksilver on Mac
Locknote - password protected note, Picasa - photo organizer, ImgBurn - ISO, Skype - free call, VLC- all-purpose media player, Yahoomsgr

I bought this flash drive so I could set up ReadyBoost
on my Windows 7 system - it's working flawlessly. One
thing to remember - if your flash drive doesn't have
software on it to let you remove it, be sure and run

"Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media"

before you just go and pull it out of the port. That
could be the end of your system recognizing it.
