Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Ultra-portable review

 

The FreeAgent GoFlex Ultra-portable is an upgrade to Seagate's excellent FreeAgent GoFlex Pro that increases the storage amount to 1.5TB, making it the largest single-volume portable external hard drive to date. The drive is also the first in the...

The Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Ultra-portable offers great flexibility, USB 3.0, and a large amount of storage. It also works with both Macs and PCs without having to be reformatted.

The GoFlex Ultra's USB 3.0 performance could be better and the drive doesn't include a USB 3.0 add-in card for computers that don't yet have this connection.

Even with the slightly low USB 3.0 performance, the GoFlex Ultra still makes an excellent portable external hard drive for people who need to expand their computer's storage.

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex TV review: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex TV

 

Last year we reviewed Seagate's FreeAgent Theater+ Media Player and generally liked what we saw, particularly the device's ability to play back most file formats. For 2010, Seagate has put out an updated version of that product that offers very similar...

Built-in Ethernet for streaming files from a networked PC or accessing Internet services; supports Netflix streaming and other online media access; HD output up to 1080p; integrated slot for FreeAgent GoFlex storage drive; compact, stylish design; you...

No built-in Wi-Fi (wireless option costs an extra $50); Blu-ray players with similar features are available for not much more money; the drive sticks out when installed; Seagate's 1TB GoFlex drive doesn't fit inside the device; no Pandora streaming.

The inclusion of Netflix and other online-streaming options make the FreeAgent GoFlex TV a compelling option for file hoarders who also want access to cloud-based media.

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex TV HD Media Player Review

 

Seagate's GoFlex TV HD is a media player with network connectivity and hard drive dock. The pint-sized black box fits unobtrusively in a living room environment - unlike a full sized Media PC - and the GoFlex TV HD's on screen controls are simple to...

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex TV Review

 

FreeAgent GoFlex TV is Seagate's third entry into the media player market, offering full HD playback and the ability to slot your FreeAgent GoFlex hard drives into the player to access the media stored inside the drive. It's relatively down to earth in...

Practically plays all media formats ; Competitive price

UI looks dated ; Limited functionality ; Underwhelming remote

For the price and the fact that as a media player it does its job rather well, if you can live with the aesthetics of its simple user interface and physical design, the GoFlex TV can be a competent player that is limited by its functionality due to its...

Review: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Net

 

Drive dock optimized for--but not limited to--Seagate's GoFlex portable drives offers syncing software, direct hooks into social networks, and file sharing.

The Pogoplug online portal lets you copy, delete, download, and upload files—basically, anything that you can do with your files at home. There's even an online viewer for perusing images, Microsoft Office files, and other content without having to...

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex - Review

 

Ever looked for extra storage just to put your home movies on to? I know I have. There were times when I had to go trough all of hard drives to find that extra gig of space I could do the job. Sometimes I wished that there would be a simple solution of...

Very simple in operation ; Throughput is dependable on the cradle ; Various storage sizes

None so far ;

If its easy upgradable storage you want, this is it! GoFlex Desk external hard drive solution is a self explanatory solution for an every day user. Don't look for RAID like performance here as GoFlex Desk does not offer those kind of services. What you...

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex TV HD Media player Review

 

The GoFlex TV is priced at around Rs. 6,900 which we felt was a brilliant price point for a feature rich HD media player. It is ideal for movie enthusiasts who have a drive full of movies across file formats, and intend watching it on big screens. The...

Easy setup, Plays most of audio and video file formats, Supports over 15 different types of internet video feeds, Economically priced

No file operations allowed ie. copy, move, paste etc., User unfriendly online keyboard
