Review of Seagate FreeAgent Go 500Gb Portable Hard Drive
9 September 2010
Summary: Today for review Seagate has sent me over one of their FreeAgent Go drives, specifically the 500gb version. I’ve taken a look at quite a few Seagate products in the past and I’ve always liked them, the same goes for the one I have today.
Pros: Small and portable, Decent speeds, Comes with Muvee Reveal 8 software, Comes with free Star Trek movie

Summary: Seagate has successfully taken a common product and injected new life into it with their GoFlex series of external hard drives.
With most portable hard drives, you are stuck using the original interface the drive / enclosure came with, usually either USB 2.0 or eSATA.
Seagate FreeAgent Go 500GB Drive with Paramount Movies
13 April 2010
Summary: The FreeAgent Go series of drives have been available for quite some time now, and despite some cosmetic changes and increases in storage capacities, they have remained about the same.
Pros: » The FreeAgent Go is a great USB 2.0 drive, » Solid performance, » Attractively styled, » Competitively priced, » Price is basically the same with or without the movie
Cons: » Unlocking movie hopefully goes better for everyone else, » Web portal to access movies is compatible only with Internet Explorer 7+, » Movies only play in Windows Media Player 10+ or on FreeAgent Theater+, » Not high definition: Movie has resolution of just 720x300
Conclusion: Seagates revamp of their FreeAgent Go line is a big success. The new drives look and feel like they are meant to last. Their brushed metal appearance makes these drives look sleek and sexy. Want to personalize the drive so more?
Pros: Well designed, Attractive appearance, Includes backup, sync and encryption software, Runs off one USB connection, Increased functionality with certain Seagate docks
Cons: Separate Windows and Mac versions, Environmentally unfriendly clamshell plastic packaging, Seagate Manager software does not work with Windows Vista 64 bit
