The Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk offers the highest capacity to date among single-volume external storage devices on the market. The drive comes in a flexible design that makes adding more connections/features a snap. It also has decent performance.
Price, Integration, Great Codec Support, Fast Interface, Everything Looks Great, Quick and Easy.
This drive is one of the most secure on the market.
Small base, Only comes with USB 2.0
GoFlex adapters are proprietary and expensive, GoFlex TV interface, features now very typical, GoFlex Desk's automated Windows backup app isn't free, 3TB needs a newer OS and firmware, or special support.
Out of the box, the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk has only a USB 2.0 connection; other connection adapters cost extra. The drive topples easily when used in the intended vertical position and it runs rather hot.
Bundled Memeo AutoSync software is 30 day trial, Only a 2 year warranty
I hope USB 3.0 is included and not an extra in Future Products
The included software doesn’t integrate well with Macs.
