Size: 2 TB Verified Purchase
So this is Verbatim's new hard drive design. I believe that it's a step BACK from previous models. Previous models were aluminum frame and this new design is plastic. Previous models had rubber feet on the bottom and the new design has no feet at all. Still has the very short USB cable and the AC adapter cable length has gotten shorter as well. Good thing it still uses the same 12V 1.5A adapter as previous models so I can use them instead.

Fortunately it still has a Samsung hard drive internally. It's the Samsung HD204UI model, known for running cool and very quiet, as well as being the most reliable drive on the market.

The front LED is beaming blue compared to yellow on previous models. It also has a switch for powering on and off as opposed to a button. The vents are on the sides now. Previous model had vents on the bottom. So it should always run fairly cool even after hours of use.

Overall, I'm happy with this drive but not sure why Verbatim took a step back with the quality of the enclosure. They still back their product with a 7 year warranty and no other manufacturer can top that. This is my 7th Verbatim drive purchase and I will continue to buy them.

Before we begin, check the review (re the 3 TB model) by CambyPCWizard right here at Amazon. I quote:

"It only gives you 2tb of empty space. It has 2 partitions that you can not do anything with. Wait for the 4tb"

Indeed, perhaps 80% of the hapless PC'ers who buy the 3 TB model (without reading my review) will believe the 3 TB model is screwed up. Too bad everyone at Verbatim is a Mensa and cannot bother to write a decent quick-start user manual. Verbatim will receive a lot of returns of the 3 TB model when the only thing defective is the user manual.

This is a combined review of these two models:
Verbatim 3 TB Store n Save 97581 external USB 3.0 Hard Drive
Verbatim 2 TB Store n Save 95780 external USB 3.0 Hard Drive

These hard drives have a few special features: on-off switch, Green Button software, excellent warranty, free back-up software, and cooling slots.

Use the on-off switch to power off the drive when you do not need it (be sure to remove hardware using Windows so you don't lose any data not yet written to disk). Many external USB hard drives do not feature an on-off switch. Green Button software is advanced power management to reduce power usage during times when your external HD is powered on but not being used. Most external USB hard drives have some method of reducing power usage when the drive is not accessed for an extended period (ask each manufacturer what their approach is).

Both of these models cool well with appropriately placed cooling slots. It is absolutely amazing how many other brands of external hard drives are sealed boxes with no cooling slots or they have cooling slots ON THE BOTTOM (heat is trapped as it rises).

I love this product and the USB 3.0 is much faster than 2.0. The reason I bought this was to transfer everything from my older external HD to a new one. External HDs do not last forever, that is why I do not recommend ever buying over 1TB unless you are a music or film major in school. If so, I would recommend 2TB or more. This product has a short (about 1.5 ft.) usb cord. I would recommend purchasing a 6ft USB 3.0 cord along with this product. Amazon sells them with free 2day shipping if you are a student.YES, s I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO A FRIEND.

The real test of a product comes when it fails!

We had a problem with this drive after some months of use - it was no longer recognized by Windows 7 machines. We emailed support and they got back to us very promptly. When their solution didn't work, they quickly provided a replacement drive. I was impressed - their 7 year warranty means something!
