I would like to thank Verbatim and Verbatim EUMEA for supplying the review sample.
The company sells all kinds of storage devices, from write once media like CD-R, DVD-R/+R and Blu-ray along with rewritable variants and USB 2.0 storage devices. Besides those you will also find products with USB 3.0, eSATA and Firewire connectivity.
A quote from the Verbatim USA website:
Since its beginning in 1969, Verbatim® has been at the forefront of the evolution in data storage technology. Today, more than 30 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.
We will be taking a look at the Store'n'Go Executive USB Drive with 8 GB capacity today. The unit features a very sturdy, shiny metal casing and retractable USB connector. Verbatim also advertises the unit with 25 MB/s read and write. While the former is easily achieved these days, it will be interesting to see if the Metal USB Flash Drive will also stay true to this statement in terms of write performance.
