The GoFlex Pro for Mac ultra-portable drive is a complete Mac computer solution. It has a faster 7200RPM drive, which takes full advantage of the included FireWire 800 adapter and cable, the fastest interface built in to Mac computers. The drive is formatted for Mac computers out of the box, making it fully compatible with Time Machine software.
Use the included plug-and-play USB 2.0 or FireWire 800 interface, or upgrade to powered eSATA or USB 3.0 by pairing the drive with the appropriate GoFlex upgrade cable to get even faster transfer speeds. Pair the drive with other GoFlex storage system products and access your content on your TV, over your network or on-the-go. Install the downloadable HFS+ driver on a PC, and the drive can be used interchangeably on both Mac and PC computers without formatting. This is the perfect solution for primarily Mac computer users who still regularly utilize a PC without any program limitation or file size restrictions. The drive’s durable soft-touch metallic finish not only helps resist fingerprints, it also blends in perfectly with Apple products.
Multiple Connections Use the standard USB 2.0 or FireWire 800 interface or upgrade to USB 3.0 or powered eSATA by pairing the drive with the appropriate GoFlex upgrade cable. Combining the GoFlex Pro ultra-portable drive with a GoFlex upgrade cable allows you to take advantage of the high-performance 7200RPM drive inside, which delivers up to 40% faster file transfer speeds than the standard GoFlex drive (GoFlex upgrade cable sold separately).
Compatible with Time Machine software Formatted with HFS+, this drive is compatible with Time Machine software so you can automatically save and easily recover up-to-date copies of everything on your Mac.
Compatible with both Mac and PC The FreeAgent GoFlex Pro for Mac ultra-portable drive comes formatted for Mac computers, but works on PC computers too. With the downloadable HFS+ driver for PCs, it’s easy to read, write and share files interchangeably between both Mac and PC computers.
Flexibility is built in Extend your digital life so you can access and share your files from anywhere by pairing your drive with the GoFlex Net media sharing device. View your movies and photos on your TV from your drive by docking it directly into a GoFlex TV HD media player.

This review is from: Seagate GoFlex Pro for Mac 500GB Ultra-Portable Hard Drive (Silver)
Pros: Size, 7200 RPM, Firewire
Other Thoughts: After looking around for quite some time I eventually decided to buy this external hard drive. I was looking for a 7200 RPM firewire capable external hard drive and this one fit my requirements. It works great and unless it dies on me, my review is for 5 stars. Definitely a good buy
