Seagate's new range of FreeAgent GoFlex portable hard-disks may come with USB 2.0 default, but it offers upgrade cables and kits that make it easy to move up from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0, eSATA or FireWire 800, great for anyone who's ever worried future-proofing your cables. What we also like is that they come with software that enables Macs to write to NTFS-formatted drives so you can switch and swap external drives without hassle. An NTFS driver is installed once on your Mac computer, and allows access and storage of files on the Windows-formatted drive.
Besides the new hard-disks, Seagate also introduces two new media players. Using the GoFlex TV HD media player consumers can easily enjoy their personal digital media library on their television screen by inserting a GoFlex ultra-portable drive or GoFlex Pro ultra-portable drive directly into the media dock, or connecting another storage device, digital or Flip camera to the two additional USB ports on the back of the device. The GoFlex Net media sharing device transforms a GoFlex ultra-portable drive, GoFlex Pro ultra-portable drive, or any USB mass storage, into a media sharing device, allowing consumers to enjoy their digital content outside their home using a PC, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, iPhone, BlackBerry or any other internet-connected computer.
