We have become so reliant on our computers that when they crash a somewhat substantial portion of our lives is missing. Bank information accounting business transactions and contact can all be lost. Another portion is digital images we snap thousands of pictures a year and forget to back them up or print them so when our hard drives go down we lose precious memories. Verbatim knows its stuff when it comes to backing up data they have a huge array of choices in which to make the backup process as painless as possible. Today we will be checking out the extremely handy Verbatim Clon 320GB external Hard drive, let’s see how well it performs: Provided by: Verbatim

Testing:

I will be using HD Tune in order to test the Verbatim Clon against the Thermaltake Black X with a 1TB hard drive. This test is more so to see if there are any major flaws and not so much to test performance against the drives.I will also be transferring 10,100, and 500MB files onto the drives and timing them.
