Editors Didn't Like

  • 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
