The First 1.5TB Portable External Hard Drive Is USB 3.0 and From Seagate

SSDs might be the storage du jour for their speed, but there's still no beating regular-asshard drives for their price to capacity ratio. And now, the first 1.5TB portable hard drive, from Seagate.

The FreeAgent GoFlex looks like this, and gives you USB 3.0 connectivity (or FireWire 800, if you get the FireWire adapter instead) for an MSRP of $250. Naturally these are more expensive than the desktop, large boy versions, but you're getting a lot of space for your digital media. And if you're a photographer or just a person who has a lot of movies and TV shows digitized and want to keep it with you, it's a nice option.

USB 3.0 is great shit :)

I have the 250 GB version (80% full). I'd probably buy a 500 or 750 GB depending on which one is cheapter per GB. Won't need THAT much storage. I only get 120 GB quota every month for my internet.

Oni said...

great now i have to buy another external HD, will bring my storage to 4 Tb lol

Mr. Derp said...

Wish I had USB 3.0.

Harry said...

Could come in handy.

Jackson said...

See, personally I think that's a huge overkill. 1.5tb is not necessary at all, not for storage anyways. I think we should spend more money in RAM memory. Imagine it, a 1tb processor! we could run holograms and stuff on that!

Nigma said...

overkill!

Jeremy said...

1.5TB. That's impressive. The rate at which technology advances is stunning.

peace, read&love daily

Cris said...

seagate products are good

Anonymous College Student said...

Oh wow.... This is awesome.

ViNCENT said...

Alltough I made allways good experiences with Seagate, my actual ones are from Fujitsu Siemens.

I do own two 500GB internal and one 1TB ext. and they are very speedy and quit too.

Maybe my next one will be Seagate again.

Drackar said...

That's pretty awesome...the bottleneck would be getting photos from the camera to the computer, at this point.

These are really handy to have, gives me space for all my music and movies.

Michaelangelo said...

Lmao at momo's comment.
Thats 'a lot' of memory. I have a 500 gig one and thats more than enough for me! I dont think I'll use it all...well maybe if I keep downloading all these movies, but even still that would take a long time!

Much love and $upport headed your way broham!
