Storage veteran Verbatim is out with the new Store 'n' Save USB 3.0 line of desktop external hard drives. The company's outdoorsy Store 'n' Go portable hard drives is complemented by a the new line, which consist of hard drives that are designed to offer capacious storage, but not quite move a lot from the desk because of its size. Store 'n' Save USB 3.0, as the name suggests, makes use of the new USB 3.0 SuperSpeed interface to connect to the host PC, virtually eliminating the bus bottleneck USB 2.0 is associated with, thanks to the 5 Gbps device-to-host bandwidth.

Measuring 192 x 118 x 49 mm, these rather bulky drives come in three capacity options: 1 TB, 2 TB, and 3 TB. The drive includes a license of Nero BackItUp and Burn Essentials software that help with data backup and optical disc burning. The bundled Green Button application software helps reduce power draw by spinning down and parking the drive when idling. Backed by a 2 year warranty, the Verbatim Store 'n' Save USB 3.0 desktop hard drives are priced, depending on the capacity options, at €76 for the 1 TB model, €96 for the 2 TB one, and €176 for the 3 TB one.

I think I'll stick to known HDDs in solid enclosures (not proprietary and no voiding warranties on replacing drives), thank you very much. :)

That's a rather unattractive enclosure. I would be looking for a place to hide it.
