Storage, you can never have enough of it. With everything going HD file sizes are getting larger, which means you need a larger storage capacity to hold all your movies, music, and photos. I remember when I thought 100GB was a lot of space, now it seems like 500GB is the standard now. Seagate has recently revamped their FreeAgent line of external hard drives. They were nice enough to send us the new FreeAgent Desk 1TB external drive. Let’s take a look…
Capacity (Model #):
500 GB (ST305004FDA2E1-RK)
640 GB (ST306404FDA2E1-RK)

1.5 TB (ST315005FDA2E1-RK)
USB 2.0: up to 480 Mb/s
Rotational Speed: 7200 RPM
6.89″ in H x 1.33″ in W x 6.77″ in L (175.0mm x 33.7mm x 172mm)

Compatibility may vary depending on user’s hardware configuration and operating system.
Seagate has also revamped their packaging for this new line of FreeAgent products. On the front there is a picture of the drive and a listing of the capacity. As you can see Seagate sent us the 1TB version. Also you notice there is a 5 year warranty on the drive, which is nice.
Opening up the box you will find everything inside of a plastic shell. Besides the drive you get the power adapter, base stand, attachable feet, USB cable, and the quick start guide.
