<h2>Seagate FreeAgent Go</h2> <br><br> Seagate differentiates itself from the pack by providing a unique docking-station option. And now the FreeAgent Go finally gets colour: The drive comes in four hues, available across three capacities: 250GB (in black or silver), 320GB (in black, silver, blue, or red), and 500GB (in black or silver). The drive measures just a half-inch thick and weighs 5.6 ounces. Software comes preloaded: The Seagate Manager suite offers scheduled backups and file synchronization, while Seagate DrivePass provides password protection for the drive (the software has 256-bit AES software encryption, too). <br><br> The docking station is a $30 option that also includes a black leatherette travel case for the FreeAgent Go. The drive sits upright in the dock, which connects via USB. <br><br> Weighing 7.8 ounces and measuring 0.7 inch, the Mac version of the FreeAgent Go is a little heavier and thicker than its PC sibling. It comes in 250GB, 320GB, and 500GB capacities; features FireWire 800/400 interfaces; and is preformatted in the Apple Time Machine-compatible HFS+ format. The Mac version costs more than the PC version, but it also includes the docking station and travel case. Unfortunately, the docking station requires FireWire 800; and, as on a PC, if you run the drive off of USB, you'll need two USB cables.
