Shown at CES, the new portable Seagate drives impressed many consumers with just how slim the drive was, with offering decent speed along with large capacities. The new drive start with a price tag of just $99, but the reviewing drive was sized at 320GB with transfer speeds up to 40MB per second using a USB 3.0 port. Sadly due to the size of the drive, there is a special SuperSpeed USB 3.0 cable that must be used from Seagate with the GoFlex Slim, but with a total height of 0.354 inches, it is not the big of an issue in all reality, unless the cord is misplaced of lost of course. The drive comes in at weighing just 0.356 pounds and also features a spin rate of 7200 RPM, with shipping starting as soon as today for the United States.
