Verbatim Titan XS 320GB Portable Hard Drive
The Verbatim Titan XS offers good performance and a fair price. However, it should be kept in mind that it is a single port USB portable drive with all the benefits and drawbacks that such a design entails.

Page 1: Introduction, About Verbatim, Packaging


There are plenty of companies with portable hard drives on the market. These range from the heavy hitters in the storage segment, like Seagate and Western Digital, to brands less known in the segment. Verbatim is one such company from the latter group being known more for optical storage than they are for portable storage. Despite that, Verbatim has several entries in the portable storage market including the Titan XS 320GB portable hard drive.

About Verbatim


Since its beginning in 1969, Verbatim has been at the forefront of the evolution in data storage technology. Today, more than 39 years later, Verbatim remains one of the most recognizable names in the data storage industry.

Customer-driven, Verbatim is known for adding considerable product value--above and beyond its competitors--to established media technology. As an industry pioneer, Verbatim is recognized for the role it plays in early product development and commercial product introduction of new technologies. Verbatim's leadership role is especially apparent in the evolution of optical media recording including MO and the CD/DVD family of products.

Along with its technological innovations, Verbatim has always been recognized universally for its superior manufacturing practices. Verbatim was the first media company to receive ISO certification, the de facto standard for quality management systems worldwide. This commitment to quality translates into consistent product performance and reliability. In addition, Verbatim provides toll-free technical support and service to enable its customers to maximize the performance of its products.

As a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, a recognized world leader in the chemical and computer industries, Verbatim is ideally positioned to take advantage of changes in the market while continuing to challenge the frontiers of data storage.


The front of the packaging has a professional looking blue-white motif that puts the drive and USB cord on full display. It also mentions the Verbatim 7-Year Warranty as well as some of the software included on the drive. The coolest thing, however, is the small piece of rubber attached to the bottom-right of the box. This is made of the same protective rubber material that surrounds the hard drive, giving a nifty little preview before you commit to a purchase.

The rear of the packaging is less notable, mostly having the standard product features and requirements in a handful of languages as well as a small paragraph about the drive.
