Seagate GoFlex 1.5TB USB 3.0 (STAA1500301) Ultra Portable External Storage Drive Review

6 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Big storage space with decent enough transfer speeds. The drive does not get hot nor there’s much vibration on smooth surfaces like glasses or aluminium. During CES 2011, Anandtech wrote about Antec showed a case with a 5.25inch GoFlex Dock bay . It does has some usefulness but it would be nice to have an aftermarket 5.25inch bay with a spring eject mechanism.

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Ultra-portable 750GB Hard Drive

13 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The last drives reviewed here were 3.5" external drives.  Like with internal magnetic hard drives, 3.5" external drives have the upper hand to their 2.5" brothers.  But while they win on the performance front, they have some downsides too.  The 2.5" drives are obviously smaller and they use less power (and thus can be powered via USB).  You can use them on the go without an AC outlet, and you don't have to carry around a larger drive with an AC power brick.

Hard Drive Review: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1.5TB

12 January 2011
  • Conclusion: While the GoFlex 1.5TB ships only in black, the other models in the series are also available in red, gray and blue. To install the unit, attach the supplied 18-inch USB 3.0 cable to the drive and then plug it into one of your computer's USB ports, preferably of the USB 3.0 variety, upon which a pair of LEDs will light up. When Windows recognizes the GoFlex, the operating system automatically installs the correct drivers.

Expert Review

Silent PC
28 November 2010
  • Summary: The modular adapter of the GoFlex gave us an opportunity to compare USB 3.0 and SATA performance directly using a second drive, the WD Scorpio Blue 500GB . When writing files the speed of both interfaces was almost identical, with SATA2 winning out by a negligible amount (less than 1MB/s). When reading files the difference was greater but marginal except when dealing with small files. For some reason reading small files was about 37% slower.

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1.5TB (STAA1500201)

20 January 2012
  • Conclusion: to najgrubszy (120x89x22 mm -dł./szer./gr.) a zarazem najpojemniejszy dysk z tej rodziny. Wyposażony jest w plastykową obudowę z jedną diodą, która sygnalizuje pracę dysku. Konstrukcja obudowy jest sztywna, ale niezbyt praktyczna bo błyszczący plastyk można łatwo porysować. Brakuje również elementów gumowych, które amortyzowałby uderzenia ,czy upadki dysku.
  • Pros: Duża pojemność, Niski koszt 1 GB, Szybki interfejs
  • Cons: Wysoka cena
