In this new day and age of computer data and digital media, it is not uncommon to have a file that is close to or exceeding the 1GB marker. These files can be anything nowadays, and you may be getting concerned while you watch the usage percentage of your hard drive nearing 100% full. What options do you have other than going out and buying a new hard drive that you would then have to open up your computer to install? Seagate has released a new line of external hard drives that have a very large amount of storage capacities. The Seagate FreeAgent Pro 1TB is an external hard drive that can offer some extra storage space for your system. Lets take a look and see how this solution compares to a regular internal hard drive that you could purchase.
Taking a look at the box of the FreeAgent Pro 1TB external hard drive, you can see that it is loaded with a bunch of features such as having a massive storage capacity of 1TB or 1,000GB! Not only is this beast of an external hard drive able to store a lot of data, it can transfer the data from your computer to the FreeAgent Pro via three different and common ways: USB 2.0, FireWire 400, and eSATA. Enough looking at the box, I know that I want to see what the device looks like and see how big it is.
When opening up the box, you can tell that Seagate wanted to keep the Seagate FreeAgent Pro 1TB very safe during transport; it is wrapped in an anti-static bag as well as placed in a cardboard casing to protect it from shipping damages. All of the accessories for the FreeAgent Pro are also protected in their very own anti-static bags. Seagate did not want to take any chances of scratches or shipping damages.
Included in the box are some very simple instructions as well as some more instructions letting you know that with the purchase of your Seagate FreeAgent Pro, you also purchased a license of Memeo backup software.
When you finally take the FreeAgent Pro out of all of its packaging, you are able to see how sleek and thin the FreeAgent Pro 1TB really is. It is a copper/brownish color with a very clean stainless steel texture to it.
Now let's go ahead and get this baby installed, I am very interested to see how it performs.
