Sleek, compact, and hassle-free, the 500GB Store 'N' Go FireWire 800 and USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive for Mac from Verbatim is a super-convenient, high-speed way to store your data and take it with you wherever you go. This external hard drive holds up to 500GB and can connect to your Mac via a built-in USB 3.0 or FireWire 800 port. While USB 3.0 offers faster data transfers than FireWire 800, both of these interfaces are faster than the ubiquitous USB 2.0 interface. Though, if you don't have a USB 3.0 port on your computer, not to worry. The USB 3.0 port on the drive is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports. While this drive is formatted in HFS+ for immediate use with your Mac, you can reformat it to FAT32 for use with Windows computers. With formatting and energy-saving software included, this portable hard drive is an exceptional buy.
