When I’m traveling I don’t want to have to take a lot of things with me. My Dell XPS M1210 only has a 60GB hard drive so I need more space. I like that I can bring the FreeAgent Go along with me and it does not take up a lot of space in my bag. It is very small and does not require an external power adapter like many external hard drives.
I really like what Seagate has done with the design of the new drives. You get up to 10 colors to choose from and the design of the drive is very sleek and appealing. The LED array on the bottom of the drive is also a nice plus.
The Go Dock is a nice addition, although it is sold separately. It allows you to place the drive vertically, which makes it even more eye appealing. Also it makes things very convenient as you just place the drive right down into the dock. The dock also has a longer USB cable that what comes with the drive itself.
The only thing that is missing from this drive is the Creedo software; it looks like Seagate has done away with it. It is not a big deal; the Seagate Manager software will satisfy most people. The 320GB version of this drive sells for $149.99, which is a good price for the performance and style of the drive. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Seagate FreeAgent Go 320GB Portable Hard Drive a 9 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award.
