Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex pro 500 GB Review

24 December 2010
  • Excerpt: The use of an external storage has become more of an everyday requirement for many not just for their business, but also as a source of pleasure. As other hardware such as media players, consoles and even routers come with a USB port which lets you use external storage not only as a source of movies, backing up data but also the best way to carry around large portions of data.

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Pro Review

LAPTOP Magazine
10 June 2010
  • Summary: Since external hard drives are generally limited by the bottlenecks of the transfer technology, it's nice to see an approach that won't leave you stranded when something better comes along. However, some may find it difficult to stomach paying $149 for the Seagate GoFlex Pro, then paying another $30 to buy the USB 3.0 connection. Once Seagate starts selling the drive with the USB 3.0 dock included, it will make more financial sense.
  • Pros: Innovative connecting system, Stylish design, Desktop stand included with capacity meter, Three-year warranty
  • Cons: Connectors add to cost, Not the fastest drive

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Pro (500GB)

5 May 2010
  • Summary: Though other external hard drives offer a preset menu of ports, the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex cuts costs by letting you pick from a buffet of "personality cables" so that you buy only the connections that suit your system profile. We applaud Seagate for making data backups easier than ever, and recommend the FreeAgent GoFlex external hard drive for extra data storage now and easy upgrades in the future.
  • Pros: Interchangeable "personality cables" add value in versatility and speed; inexpensive; works with Mac and Windows OS; three-year warranty; Memeo backup software included.
  • Cons: Three-year warranty, compared with five years for older FreeAgent drives (still better than most portables hard drives).

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Pro im Test

27 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Fazit: Die externen 2.5" FreeAgent GoFlex Pro Festplatten bieten durch die Upgrade-Kabel und Docking-Station verschiedene Anschlussmöglichkeiten, sind gut verarbeitet, leise und haben meiner Meinung nach ein gutes Preis/Leistungsverhältnis. Ich habe den Kauf der GoFlex Pro 500 GB Festplatte deftinitiv nicht bereut und kann sie jedem für den mobilen Einsatz empfehlen.

Expert Review

10 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Externe 2,5" Festplatten gibt es viele, allerdings sind die Anschlussmöglichkeiten bei den meisten auf einen USB 2.0 Anschluss begrenzt. Anders ist dies bei der FreeAgent GoFlex und GoFlex Pro Serie von Seagate. Neben einem mitgelieferten USB 2.0 Adapter können über sogenannte Upgrade-Kabel, mit Adaptern für USB 3.0, FireWire 800 und eSATA, die Übertragungsgesch- windigkeit verbessert [...
