Road warriors with a lot of disk files can now carry 1.5 terabytes of them in a shirt pocket with the newly announced Seagate Freeagent GoFlex portable disk drive. The new GoFlex incorporates the faster transfer speed of USB 3.0 to better access so much content. The new drive is compatible with both Windows (s msft) and Mac (s aapl) platforms, and is available now from Seagate (s stx) and through retailers for $249.99.
A large drive is ideally suited for handling HD movie content, and Seagate has preloaded the GoFlex with 20 recent releases from Paramount Pictures (s via). The drive is compatible with Seagate’s GoFlex line of HD accessories, and includes a dongle for connecting it to them for HD movie playback on a connected TV. The preloaded movies are locked and can be purchased from Seagate for viewing.
