4 out of 5 eggsFast!

Pros: Fast! I back up my 2008 server with Acronis BR10 and FreeAgent Go drives. 300GB to back up. It usually takes 4.5 hours with a FreeAGent Go and the onboard USB 2.0 My first move was adding a SIIG PCIex1 USB 3.0 controller and the backup time went down to 3.5 hours with the same FreeAgent Go USB 2.0 drives. My next move was to this FreeAgent GoFlex Pro USB 3.0 drive. The backup time went down to 1.5 hours! Full image backups of a 300GB (used) server in an hour. What more can I say!

Cons: The docking station needs some work. They did away with one of the USB connectors (the FreeAGent Go dock had two USB leads for extra power) and the docking stations is almost too small to support the drive. It is difficuly to insert the drive in to the docking station because there are no guides. LEDs on the drive itself are a waste (as they were on the FreeAgen Go drives).

Other Thoughts: They need to make the docking station a little bigger with some type of guide to help seat the drive. They also need to sell the drives and docking stations seperately. To my knowledge you have to by the pair at this point. I am sure this will chawith time. All I can say is FAST!
