Fair price for quality hard drive9/9/2012
I generally end up buying all computer storage items from Buy.com. I continue to check elsewhere, just in case, but I always get the best price from here. Shipping time is very quick, always. I highly recommend this product as well as Buy.com.
Great product. It's convenient, compact & I'm really pleased with it.
This USB is awesome. I bought it a week ago and have no complaints. It works as advertised. I used to have DVDs to backup my data but now the data I have on my machine is too much for DVDs so I needed a storage disk to backup and this USB disk works great.
A Breakthrough Product8/17/2010
Why didn't someone think of this before? Seagate has come up with a product that is extremely useful and flexible. What they did differently than all the other external harddrive manufacturers was to separate the harddrive from the interface adapter. Thus, you can mix and match your interface and external harddrive to fit your needs. Every Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex harddrive comes with a USB 2.0 adapter. However, you can purchase USB 3.0, FireWire 800, and eSATA adapters separately. Here is the breakthrough part... all of the Seagate adapters will work with any SATA harddrive. (That's right ANY SATA harddrive.) So, if you installed a new 3.5 inch harddrive in your desktop, but forgot to copy over some of your files to the new harddrive, all you have to do is find the harddrive you took out, plug in one of the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex adapters and you can connect up that harddrive to your new desktop without taking the case off. Same is true with any laptop 2.5 inch harddrive; just plug in one of the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex adapters and you have an external harddrive. Granted it doesn't have a protective case, but you can recover those files you need in a snap.
