FreeAgent Go 120GB Overview

The FreeAgent Go is a very small hard drive. It is not much bigger then a wallet or credit card. It is also very plain with a single Seagate logo in the corner. If we flip the unit over we can see 4 rubber pieces that will keep the drive from sliding on your desk. Also you will notice the Seagate certified repair sticker on the back.

The drive is also very then at only .75-inch tall. This means you can easily fit it in your pocket or laptop bag. There is only 1 connection on the drive and it is for the USB cable.

Since this is a portable drive I decided to use it with my laptop, a Dell XPS M1210. Seagate includes a dual head USB connector. One head is power only and the other is power + data. I'm not sure why they have both since the drive works fine with just the power + data cable plugged in.

When you plug the drive in the front and Seagate logo will light up bright orange. Also when you are transferring data the light will pulse.
