Seagate's FreeAgent Go Offers World's First Bus-Powered 640GB 2.5-Inch Portable HDD

Illustration for article titled Seagate's FreeAgent Go Offers World's First Bus-Powered 640GB 2.5-Inch Portable HDD

Seagate's FreeAgent Go line of hard drives is home of the first 640-gigabyte portable in the beloved USB bus-powered 2.5-inch form factor.

This means that you get a ton of portable storage space, and you still don't need an AC adapter. You just plug the drive into a USB 2.0 port and proceed with your business. Simple, easy, nice. Pricing and availability is still up in the air for now, but we'll keep our eyes peeled. [Seagate]

Right now, the highest capacity for the 500GB triple interface OWC Mercury externals is $164 and $239 for 5,400 and 7,200 RPM respectively, and $119 and $189 for the USB 2.0 alone. I wonder how close Seagate's offering will weigh in on price with the 140GB gain in capacity.
