Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk 4 TB Review
Being a habitual viewer of Amazon.com and a regular customer of Seagate products, when I started looking for an external drive for my laptop, the best I could find was Seagate GoFlex 4 TB external hard drive featuring 5 LEDs, a USB 3.0 base dock, 4 foot USB cord and much more. It looks cool; black, thin and sleek with a nice build. But definitely I don’t like it for its looks solely but the attributes and options are pretty remarkable so far. I needed to transfer my work related files into an external drive so I could easily take it along to office and use it with the laptop. I ordered it straight from Amazon and received the pack in time without any delay along with an AC adaptor and a capacity gauge display (thanks Seagate I hate buying adaptors separately).
- It’s a STAC4000100 model and so far according to various reviews it is considered as world’s most versatile external drive due to its features. As far as my experience is concerned the best part is that it can be used on my laptop; a PC and Mac computer interchangeably without any reformatting. It is easy to use having pre loaded backup software with encryption. For USB 2.0 users it might be a little slow but since I am using it with a USB 3.0 port in my system so the transfer rate is quicker than expected. The installation process is very simple and easy, it installs all the drives automatically.
So far I haven’t found any negatives about this gadget. However, I am sometimes irritated by its hibernating feature when it goes inactive after some time. So I immediately consulted the customer services and I was told how to disable this feature of auto sleep. So no I have absolutely no issues regarding the product now. I am very much satisfied its performance so far. So yes, I highly recommend it!
