The Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk external drive delivers high-capacity storage, automatic continuous backup and encryption for all your files with its plug-and-play USB 2.0 connectivity. And, as the world's most upgradable desktop external drive, it offers you the ability to easily upgrade the connection interface for faster transfer speeds. Simply pair the drive with a GoFlex USB 3.0 or FireWire 800/USB 2.0 adapter and get instant performance increase by up to 10x. The GoFlex Desk external drive works interchangeably between a PC and Mac computer and stands in either a vertical or horizontal orientation to complement any desktop environment.
The Model STAC3000500 is a "drive only" version which comes without the GoFlex USB 2.0 adapter. Select this drive if you are already using a GoFlex Desk and want to use the same adapter to connect your new GoFlex Desk; or you want a faster interface than USB 2.0—like USB 3.0 or FireWire 800—right from the start.
This review is from: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 3TB 3.5" Desk External Drive - Drive Only STAC3000500 Black
Pros: It being a 3TB for a decent price is what caught my attention and ultimately choosing this hard drive. Plus I liked that it is small.
Cons: I am constantly having to reformat the drive. In the first month I did it 3 times. Now it just sits on my desk collecting dust. Not worth the time to transfer all my stuff again.
Other Thoughts: As a general note. Most media players/centers that allow you plug your external into your tv to watch movies can not communicate with hard drives >2TB. This is not in their book or box. You must call the product customer service to find out.
