Verbatim TUFF-CLIP USB Drive 8GB Review

It seems like it was only yesterday that we were carrying our lives on 3.5” floppy disks stored in plastic cases. Today we have a wide variety of storage media from CD’s, DVD’s, Flash Drives, and SDCards to name a few. The most popular of these seems to be Flash Drives. Who would have known that started out as an expensive 64mb novelty is now a must have item in every persons personal items.

Check out this Photostick Review, which explains how you can simply plug a device in your phone, press “Back Up Now” and give it a few minutes to do its magic.

Today we are going to take a look at a new product from Verbatim, the Verbatim TUFF-CLIP USB Drive 8GB. It’s the clip on this little unit that sets it apart from other flash drives. But how does it hold up to testing?  Lets find out, shall we?

Closer Look:

The packaging for the Verbatim TUFF-CLIP USB Drive 8GB is minimal in nature and leaves little waste behind when the drive is removed.  The clear packaging allows you to see what you’re buying at a glance and has all the information you need to make an intelligent choice.

Once removed from the packaging you can see how the USB port is securely covered and the clip opening is large and inviting for that belt loop or purse strap or that plastic weave keychain your little sibling made for you at summer camp.  Though we didn’t test that portion of the drive, it appears sturdy for most abuse.
When we slide back the cover, we can see the USB port.  The port is flush with the cover when closed.  Verbatim has also made it easy for you to tell which side is up when inserting into those hidden USB ports on the back of your laptop.  They have placed their company name on one side of the slide to indicate this side up.

Lets take a look at the included security software and specifications.
