Verbatim InSight USB Drive

Verbatim hoped to stand out among external hard drive makers on Monday by launching the InSight. The notebook-sized drives are unique in having an LCD that shows both the drive name and its free space. Even though it's not e-paper, the screen remains on even when the drive isn't attached through USB. The simple addition lets users own multiple drives without having to label them or use a computer to check which ones need to be upgraded or cleared of unwanted files.

All InSight drives are entirely powered by the USB bus and work with both Macs and Windows PCs. They have typical notebook drives inside and spin at 5,400RPM with 8MB of cache each. Versions ship today with 320GB and 500GB of storage at prices of $120 and $150 respectively.
