Introduction

There are a ton of manufactures making external storage solutions, such as Seagate, Western Digital, and Hitachi, just to name a very few. Most people do not even think of a manufacture such as Verbatim when considering portable external storage solutions. Verbatim is proud to introduce a line-up of portable storage for everyone's needs. Today, ASE Labs is going to take a look at a very unique Verbatim portable drive, the InSight. Their claim to fame with this drive is the "Always On Display." You might be wondering what does this mean? Stay tuned and read on as we give you the heads up on this unique and interesting portable storage.

Packaging

Taking a quick look at the package, we noticed right off that it includes a little LCD display. This is something that we have not seen before in any single 2.5" portable drive. We noticed that many spots on the front, side, and back of the package reminded us of the "Always On Display." Something that we found nice with this drive is it is both Microsoft Windows and MAC compatible. Many of the portable storage solutions do not offer drives that are MAC compatible. A very nice addition to the features we felt.

The back of the package lets us know that the drive includes Nero BackItUp software as a bundled system backup application. This is a nice touch.

One discrepancy that we noticed right away; on the box it describes that it carries a full 5 year limited warranty. On the Verbatim web site describing these drives, they claim that the units come with a full 7 year limited warranty. We'd be inclined to trust the box over the website and so should you.
