This is re-badged (only not). I don't know why the Verbatim brand is even mentioned. These come from a German company.
A benchmark from HD Tune is in one of the Amazon reviews below.

These have the stupid dual style usb 3.0 port that gives away the year these came out (2012).

Source company product page:
https://www.freecom.com/product/m...0gb-56153/
Review (more of an unboxing):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KluUJU-XU_k
Amazon product page:
https://www.amazon.com/Verbatim-F...B00AA5YVKU (Not many reviews but the average is 2.7 stars)

For price reference, Here is a Toshiba 1TB Portable for $8 more:
https://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-HD...B079D359S6
or

And a Western Digital for $10 more:

They came out with one of the first 2TB USB 3.0 external drives and were made famous for their high quality "blue bottom" writeable CDs.
