Hands on: Seagate GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt adapter

07/07, 9:26am

Is the Seagate GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt adapter worth the upgrade?

Earlier this year we had the opportunity to review the Seagate GoFlex Thunderbolt adapter designed for Seagate's portable hard drive range. Seagate has since released the GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt adapter which can be used to upgrade its USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 desktop GoFlex drives. The concept is a good one - pay a little more for the Seagate GoFlex drive upfront, but you then have the flexibility to upgrade to a faster I/O as the technology becomes available. So is it worth upgrading your USB drive to Thunderbolt and is it worth the $190 price of admission?

05/14, 5:30pm

Seagate GoFlex Satellite drive reaches FCC

Seagate's plans for a rare truly cable-free hard drive were uncovered through an FCC filing this week. Its GoFlex Satellite would have not just 802.11n Wi-Fi to serve storage on the local network but would have its own battery to operate completely cable-free for hours. An iOS app, GoFlex Media, would let iPad, iPhone, and iPod owners stream music or videos directly from the drive, presumably as a way of giving access to a much larger media library while travelling.

Seagate GoFlex Slim drive shipping

Seagate fulfilled one of its CES promises on Tuesday and shipped the GoFlex Slim. The 320GB disk earns its name from an extremely minimalist shell that leads to a 9mm (0.35in) height about as thick as a pencil. In spite of the size, speed is a major factor and is helped along by a 7,200RPM spin speed and out-of-the-box USB 3.0 support, the combination of which can transfer at up to 40MB per second.

Review: Seagate GoFlex line

08/29, 3:55pm

We review Seagate GoFlex 3TB Drive, Net, TV

Seagate has been synonymous with storage for decades, but it has often followed a relatively conservative path. GoFlex changes that; it promises to keep external hard drives almost futureproof by making the ports as removable as the drives themselves. With that in mind, we've made a comprehensive review of the main GoFlex lineup, including the GoFlex TV media hub, GoFlex Net network-attached storage hub, and the range-topping 3TB GoFlex Desk external drive.

Seagate GoFlex Home brings modular NAS for Macs, PCs

07/19, 9:20am

Seagate GoFlex Home uses external drives for NAS

Seagate dipped into the world of simple network-attached storage by launching the GoFlex Home. The drive potentially avoids the common problems with future upgrades by using its own GoFlex system for the storage: the NAS has a modular base that takes any single disk, desktop-sized GoFlex drive for a swap up in capacity without having to replace the drive or open a bay door. Trumping some drives, the Home has its own Wi-Fi and doesn't need to be plugged in solely through Ethernet.

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk hits 3TB

Seagate claimed a record in storage today by launching a 3TB FreeAgent GoFlex Desk drive. The first of its kind packs a single, 3TB disk inside and is large enough to need a 64-bit OS to work: it needs either Mac OS X Snow Leopard and either Windows 7 or Vista in their 64-bit versions to see more than the 2.1TB inherent to drives on most 32-bit platforms. Windows XP may not be usable at all.

Seagate GoFlex drives promise universal future upgrades

05/04, 9:15pm

Seagate GoFlex drives, media hub debut

Seagate tonight overhauled its entire external hard drive line in a way that renders them much more future proof. GoFlex supports USB 2.0 natively but has a unique cable system that adapts the drives to different standards or features. A drive could be upgraded to USB 3.0 or FireWire 800 just by getting the relevant adapter; an automatic backup cable can turn the drive into a backup system without needing more elaborate hardware.
