Summary: Does what it says. Turns your old GoFlex into a USB 3.0 device. I actually used it to convert my GoFlex Home into a GoFlex Desk unit. The reason why it is rated 4 stars instead of 5 is because of how THIN the base is. The GoFlex fits directly on it, so there is no extra to the base.
Summary: Works as it should, providing USB 3.0 capability to Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex drives. If you already have one of these drives with USB 2.0 base, than this is what you want. If you don't, then you are probably better off getting a good hard drive enclosure and 3.5" SATA drive to fill it.
Summary: I find Arthur's review to be interesting ... this base is for the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex (SFG, my abreviation) product so it wasn't designed to be used with a bare hard drive as it appears he has done. I bought the SFG 2tb with USB2 base before the USB3 base became available.
Summary: I have 3 of these hard drives, and despite what you may have heard about Seagate build quality, these drives have never let me down. My oldest is about 2 years old and I haven't had a single issue.
Summary: I've had good backup service with these Seagate external drives, -I use 2 of these. This one is working perfectly, but it did not come with the cable. I thought when I bought it that I could use the usual USB cable from an earlier drive with it, but this one uses a unique cord that fits onto the...

Summary: I bought the GoFlex to attach regular 3.5" hard drives, but because it's made for Seagate's own drives, an ordinary drive is somewhat unstable and has recently developed a slight crack in the male jack from it's awkward wobbly mounting.
Summary: I used it to clone my MacbookPro's 500GB SSD to a Samsung 1TB SSD which I put on the Seagate adapter. There is some discussion about whether the Seagate adapter can handle large SSDs. It was fine with the Samsung 1TB.
