Is this considered an SSD (speed-wise?)

I have a Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex that I use to store things on my current PC, yet I am building a new one and have a few questions.

1. Is this basically SSD technology?
2. Is it as fast as an SSD?
3. If not, what is the speed comparison?

Just wanted to know since I will be using this from my old PC, and possibly buy another for more space on my new one.

First of all, the best use of SSD is if u use it as OS drives, or pair it with OS drive (as cache)..

I'm not sure GoFlex is using SSD or SSD caching.. (need a little research first)...

The Goflex is not an SSD.
a 500gb ssd is expensive, really expensive.
50$ for a 500gb SSD not only sounds shady, but also smells like good old Chinese intuition, like a 200gb flash drive.

No its not an SSD, SSD's are lightning fast, if your goflex can outrun an SSD, that is well over 10,000 RPM, and seeing on how a 10,000 RPM 300gb WD VelociRaptor is selling for 100.00 right now, sorry, its not an SSD Speedwise either.

Turns out that its 5400RPM so really its a lower end hard drive :(  But I will still be using the one I already own as my primary drive (1TB total capacity with 600GB left, and the USB connection is an adapter for a SATA), paired with a 128GB SSD. :D
