PCMAG.COM posted a review of the new Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk (4TB) external hard drive that is worth reading if you are looking for a large storage solution.
They listed the pros as being “HUGE”, “numerous connection interfaces” and “low cost”. On the flip-side, they stated that the plastic construction was a negative, as it didn’t offer much in the way of protection. Their rating is 4 out of 5, or “very good”.
Inside the case you will find a 7200 RPM drive for faster access than many smaller drives that are only 5400 RPM, and the USB 3.0 interface offers throughput of up to 5Gbps. PCMAG.COM tested the speed with a 1.2GB test folder, which took 15 seconds using USB 3.0 and 42 seconds using USB 2.0
If you are needing an external hard drive, the price may be right, at 299 retail, but a street price of 250 or less. One of these drives could be used as a large file share for your home network, or to make backups of your computer system using the included software. They work equally as well with Microsoft Windows based computers or servers as they do with Apple Mac.
The drive is so popular that our supplier is sold out until the 28th when the next shipment comes in.
