This software package by Memeo is availbale with all GoFlex storage devices and works independently from your chosen interface.
Good article, but I think next time you should use some kind of abbreviation or acronym system. There was barely enough room for the bars!
I think this is an overall pretty good review. My problem is that now I have a bunch of external storage "solutions" and its getting out of control. I have several 2.5" drives, eSata 3.5", and a WD World Book 1TB network drive. Quite a bit of data exists on more than one drive, but its starting to get annoying. I need one kind of drive that can do everything. I need storage for storage.
good review but there are many pretty obvious mistakes in the graphs (particularly, in the section on read/write throughput)
ugh, you couldn't give me a Seagate product
It's a very interesting proposition by Seagate to allow us to change adapters and have a great deal of uses for a drive, but it feels like you'd be investing quite a bit in a set of drives that could be outdated quickly, as capacity vs price is continuing to get cheaper.I'll second the thought that I feel like I have a lot of external drives already, so it'd be a tough sell to someone like myself who already has drives with USB and eSATA, or a NAS.
I would be more impressed with hi speed interface that allows expansion or daisy chaining. Then some software to allow migration/backup/cloning and well as redundancy or duplication elimination.
"The TV HD Media Player is a complementary product in the GoFlex line that requires a hard drive to operate."Are you sure it requires a hard drive? I use mine with a USB memory stick, and it runs fine without anything plugged in to it if you are streaming media as far as I was aware (I haven't run my cable yet to be sure). It works like any small media player device, but also has the option to stick a hard drive in the front. Since it's generally the same price as most other media players this added feature was enough to get my purchase over others with built in space or pre-installed drives that are not easily removable.

whats the point of having usb 2.0 at all on these drives? isn't usb 3.0 backwards compatible?
Why would someone buy a Seagate Hard Drive ?To lose it's data after a few months
Seagate should concentrate more on their hardware reliability not the looks, I have lots of problems with their drives.
Any idea what could be slowing down writes on eSATA drives?
Two words: Light PeakComing after the new year.
The SATA connector is guaranteed for 50 insertions and GoFlex uses it directly. Doesn't this make GoFlex useless?
