Verbatim Micro USB drive review

A tiny USB drive for all your storage needs

TODO alt text

Our Verdict

A very clever product that shows just how much protable storage has moved on but we're not sure if we would trust our data on something so easy to lose

For

  • Great size
  • Amazing capacity for size

Against

  • Could be easily lost

This tiny 8GB USB drive takes portability to the extreme, measuring just 30 x 2 x 12mm.

A lanyard line lets you attach it to your keyring and we'd strongly advise you do this, as although the drive is designed to be ultra-rugged, it's very easy to lose.

Using the drive is a pleasure. You can either take advantage of its drag-anddrop capabilities, or use Verbatim's preinstalled Carry It Easy software. This lets you not only synchronise the device with your computer, but also compress and password-protect your data.

This USB drive is an excellent product, but some users might not be keen to trust their data to such a losable drive.
