Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1.5TB totes USB 3.0

Seagate has updated its FreeAgent GoFlex external HDD range with the industry's first 1.5TB portable external drive.  Entirely bus-powered - and so requiring no dual-USB cable or PSU - the new GoFlex comes as standard with the company's USB 3.0 adapter, which is also backward compatible with USB 2.0.

Of course, it also means owners can snap off that adapter and use Seagate's FireWire version or, indeed, slot the drive into one of the various desk docks and multimedia players.  Seagate offers a range of these, from the GoFlex Home NAS through to the GoFlex TV HD we reviewed a few months back.

Too good to be true? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Seagate GoFlex TV HD Review

Seagate GoFlex TV HD Review

Back when we reviewed the Seagate GoFlex HDD we concluded that, while the concept of an external drive with interchangeable cables was reasonable, we thought it would make more sense when used with the company's multimedia docking stations.
