First Look: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Slim

1:49 /

The GoFlex Slim furthers Seagate's GoFlex family of portable external hard drives' excellence by being some forty percent thinner.

Seagate GoFlex family of external hard drives is by far the most flexible external storage solution on the market, and today, the company managed to shrink the physical side of these hard drives significantly. Hello, my name is Dong Ngo and this is the GoFlex Slim External Hard Drive from Seagate. First announced at CES 2011, at just 9 mm thick, the GoFlex Slim is about 40% slimmer than other portable drives in the GoFlex family. This drive is about as thin as an iPhone and just slightly larger. On the inside, however, the drive is equipped with an internal hard drive that spins at 7200 RPM and supports USB 3.0. This means it potentially offers very fast performance. Like all drives in the GoFlex family, the Slim can be used with any type of peripheral ports, including USB 2.0, FireWire, and eSATA. The Slim also works with adaptors made for other drives in the GoFlex family such as these GoFlex for Mac here. The adaptor can be used interchangeably. The GoFlex Slim's included USB 3.0 adaptor can be used with other 2.5-inch SATA internal hard drives. This makes the drive a good choice for those who need to work with internal hard drives regularly. The GoFlex Slim is available in only 320-gigabyte capacity and costs around $100. It comes with 2 version, for Mac and PC, with each version having software that allows both platforms to have full access to it without changing the file system. To read more about the GoFlex Slim, check out the full review at CNET.com. My name is Dong Ngo and this has been the first look at the Seagate GoFlex Slim External Hard Drive.
