Seagate is still pushing their GoFlex Desk line as hard as they can. After releasing the first 3TB external drive last year, they're raising the bar with their new 4TB beast.
They sure took their time, but Seagate's finally gotten around to getting you Android users an app to stream content from its 500GB GoFlex Satellite external HDD. Previously, Android users had to use the browser to interact with the Wi-Fi-based drive, which lets users stream their unaccountably large media libraries…
It must be scary, offering traditional storage in these cloud-based times. Seagate's obviously thought long and hard over this one, and whacked Wi-Fi into their new GoFlex 500GB drive, so you can store/draw from your data-bank, using your phone.
Okay, so the previous record-holder in the world's thinnest hard drive category was only 1mm fatter, but still! Records! The Seagate GoFlex Slim portable hard drive—first debuted at CES this January but today a real live shipping USB 3.0, 7200RPM storage accessory—measures up at just 9mm thick. That's 320GB of bonus…
SSDs might be the storage du jour for their speed, but there's still no beating regular-ass hard drives for their price to capacity ratio. And now, the first 1.5TB portable hard drive, from Seagate.
Recently the manufacturing trend in mainstream network storage has been to eschew using Microsoft's Windows Home Server packages, which is basically a low-powered PC, and coming up with their own proprietary machines. Seagate's? Basically just a hard drive.
Seagate's GoFlex storage system consists of external hard drives and accessories which can be matched so that you can connect to almost anything. The system is also the first one with which Seagate will include NTFS drivers for Macs.
