The Verbatim Store 'n' Go USB Drive has a convenient slider design and comes in five different memory-size capacities: 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB. Depending on the memory capacity you desire, you can select a blue, red or green drive. The 2GB size is also available in a color-assorted three-pack. This Verbatim memory stick is a USB 2.0 flash drive; newer USB 3.0 technology is faster, but it is not yet incorporated into all devices. Confirm which type of USB port you need to connect to before selecting the type of USB flash drive that will work best for you. If you have one device that is USB 3.0 and the rest are USB 2.0, choose a USB 3.0 drive since they are backwards compatible.
This USB drive has a hard-plastic casing and a loop for connecting it to a lanyard or strap. Like some of the other USB drives we reviewed, the Verbatim USB drive does not include a cap that encloses the USB connector entirely. This is adequate for most, but it is not suitable for those who are worried about contaminating the USB connector. The incorporated loop is not suitable to be attached to a keychain. This USB drive is for general use and is also not suitable for rugged exposure or careless transport.
Unlike many USB drives, the Verbatim USB drive does not come with a data-transfer indicator light or built-in security software. An indicator light is helpful if you want to know if the flash drive device is communicating with the host device. Security software can encrypt files or password protect the device or specific files on the device, but this Verbatim USB flash drive does not include any security software. If you are not worried about exposing sensitive company data or personal information should you lose the device, the lack of this feature should not be an issue for you.
This USB flash drives comes with a generous lifetime warranty and email support. However, we found insufficient support documentation for this drive online, and Verbatim does not provide technical support via telephone or live chat.
The Verbatim Store 'n' Go USB Drive is a solid, basic, external flash-memory storage device. It is missing a few of the extras that we were looking for, such as an indicator light, security software and an enclosed cap to keep debris out of the USB connector. However, if your drive requirements are simple, this USB flash drive will work well for you.

Verbatim's USB drive does not include security software, and it does not include technical support via telephone.
If you are looking for a no-frills USB 2.0 drive and do not require integrated security features, this drive is perfect for you.
