1.5TB FreeAgent GoFlex External Drive

Seagate’s FreeAgent GoFlex Desk external hard drive was recently fabricated in the storage capacity of 3TB. Now, the company has released a new storage solution that can be used with either Mac or PC in 1.5TB density, the FreeAgent GoFlex ultra-portable drive. Sporting a sleek design packed with powerful features, this new device can store up to 60 HD movies, 750 video games, several photos or multiple digital music files.

Upgrading the USB interface from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0, this newly unleashed external drive flaunts 10x transfer speed when connected to a USB 3.0 port. The included Superspeed USB 3.0 cable ensures faster transfer and seamlessly works with USB 2.0 ports too. With this stylish arrival around, the option to store HD content and music files can now be enjoyed by multimedia buffs and business professionals.

“Today’s announcement is a ‘triple-crown’ of consumer technology – packaging record breaking capacity, blazingly fast USB 3.0 connectivity and the bonus of movie entertainment – making the 1.5TB GoFlex ultra-portable drive an unprecedented and innovative solution. Bringing this solution to market on the heels of our 3TB GoFlex Desk drive and the Momentus XT solid state hybrid drive is proof of Seagate’s continuing technology leadership and tradition of setting storage industry milestones,” shared Darcy Clarkson, Vice President of Global Retail Sales and Marketing, Seagate.

The black FreeAgent GoFlex ultra-portable drive comes with several add-on cables and accessories to deliver an unparalleled level of performance. The GoFlex Net media sharing device and the GoFlex TV HD media player are also bundled in. Rendering compatibility with Windows and Mac OS X computers, this solution employs an NTFS driver for Mac. This driver lets the hard drive store and access files from both Windows and Mac OS X computers and eliminates the need of reformatting.

Pre-loaded with films, the 1.5TB FreeAgent GoFlex ultra-portable drive with USB 3.0 adapter is now available for $249.99 through Seagate’s official website as well as select retailers.
