I have always been a fan of options, especially when it comes to computers and computing in general.  We were big fans of the X58 chipset because it now allows us to CHOOSE between SLI and CrossFire on the same motherboard.  I really liked some OCZ SSD hard drives as they had both SATA connections and USB connections allowing you to use them internally or as external drives.  This new Verbatim hard drive takes it another step further by offering FOUR connection types: USB 2.0, FireWire 400, FireWire 800 and eSATA II.

New Verbatim drives will offer four connection options - Storage 2

Verbatim will offer both a 500GB and 1TB model that use 3.5″ 7200 RPM hard drives.  Prices are bit on the steep side thoug, coming at $180 for the 500GB model and $250 for the 1TB.
While they aren’t the first quad interface external drives on the market, Verbatim’s adding to the bunch with a new 500GB and 1TB model. Slated to debut at this year’s Macworld Expo, the pro audio / video-grade drives are Mac and PC compatible and tout USB 2.0, FireWire 400, FireWire 800 and eSATA II sockets. Each unit weighs 3.3-pounds and features 3.5-inch HDDs with 7,200RPM spindle speeds and 32MB of cache. Grab one right this very moment for $179.99 / $249.99, respectively.
