  • Conclusion: It’s fast enough that you’ll be upset when you move files to drives connected via USB 2.0 and FireWire. But that speed comes at a steep price.

Expert Review

ComputerShopper
14 September 2011
  • Excerpt: There’s little to dislike about the 4TB GoFlex Satellite. Extremely fast over USB 3.0, it's flexible (thanks to its interchangeable base), and it works on both Macs and PCs out of the box.
  • Pros: Massive capacity in a compact, single-drive enclosure, Very fast over USB 3.0, Swappable base station lets you upgrade to a new interface without replacing drive
  • Cons: Relying on a single drive to back up so much data can be dangerous, Expensive, considering 3TB models cost about $100 less
