Model: Seagate 2TB FreeAgent GoFlex Desk External Hard Drive
Provided By: Seagate
Seagate has been a leader in the storage industry for more than 30 years. Beginning with the industry's first 5.25-inch hard drive, the company has lead the way, growing to become one of the world's largest manufacturers of storage products. Seagate currently manufactures a wide range of products for both consumer and enterprise applications. Along with internal drives for the mobile and desktop markets, it offers a number of external solutions, including the FreeAgent family of portable and desktop hard drives.
One of the latest additions to the FreeAgent family is the GoFlex Desk external hard drive. Available in 1TB, 2TB and 3TB capacities, this high-capacity desktop hard drive takes full advantage of Seagate's new GoFlex technology. While the drive supports USB 2.0 out of the box, its file transfer performance can be increased by up to 10x by swapping the GoFlex adapter base for one that supports USB 3.0 or FireWire 800. The GoFlex Desk drive also sports an illuminated capacity gauge and comes pre-loaded with easy-to-use backup software with encryption for both the Mac and PC.
