Few can question the fact that our storage needs are higher than ever, and really, there is no one else to blame but ourselves. Today, more than in any other point in the short history of computing, the computer is an integral partâ€”if not the centerpieceâ€”of our modern lives.
We use it for almost everything; we produce many important documents, save a lot of multimedia files, communicate with others, all of which result in a large amount of files. Ultimately, that means we need more storage. So, in order to support our demanding computing habits, we need large repositories for our digital files. How larger can you get than with the Seagate FreeAgent Pro External Hard Drive 1TB? If you thought 500 gigabytes was big, think again; this hard drive lets you store a full terabyte of files.
Limitless Space for all your Documents and Files
The Seagate FreeAgent Pro External Hard Drive 1TB is one complete external storage solution. To begin with, its exterior boasts both style and substance.
Its smooth black surface is beautifully accentuated with modern-looking orange lines that allow the hard drive to fit right in with all your other modern devices. Its stand not only allows vertical positioning but it also makes the product stand out from the rest.
It is very compact and lightweight as well, and thus is very easy to carry aroundâ€”ideal for the power user on the go. Operation is very easy too since it makes use of the plug-and-play USB 2.0 interface and an instant power on/off touch point. The USB 2.0 interface allows the hard drive to be used on a wide variety of PCs and transfer speeds of up to 480 Mbps. It also has support for Windows Vista, XP and MAC. Additionally, it can also be connected through the FireWire interface and the SATA interface, which allows transfer speeds of up to 3000 Mbps.
In terms of sheer performance, the Seagate FreeAgent Pro External Hard Drive 1TB never fails to impress. Without even going into specifics, you know that one terabyte is, to put things bluntly, a lot of files. Imagine storing thousands of your documents, pictures, videos, and MP3s in just one disk. Moreover, it reads data in a flash as well with a spindle speed of 7200 RPM and excellent buffer memory.
While the specs mentioned above make it worth the purchase, the included FreeAgent Pro data mover makes it a no-brainer. This software makes it easy to sync all your data since it automatically replicates and moves the data you need to selected locations. These locations arenâ€™t limited to your “My Documents” folder since data can also be synchronized directly to your iPod, your online Shutterfly album, or to your online space. It even has data recovery capabilities, which only makes this hard drive all the more appealing.
For a truly robust external hard drive, choose the Seagate FreeAgent Pro External Hard Drive 1TB. With the performance it offers, you can say that it is good enough not only for the present, but for the near future as well.
