Seagate FreeAgent Portable External Hard Drive Review
This next gift is great for ANYONE who uses a computer. Seagate’s FreeAgent external hard drives are the ideal electronics gift: they store, protect, manage and secure boatloads of digital content and entertainment, including music, games, photos, videos and files. They’re packed full of functionality and look great too: Seagate recently revamped the drives with new, splashy colors, super compact form factors, and management features that will wow even the most jaded digirati on your gift list. And you can personalize them: load up a 500 GB FreeAgent with your gift recipient’s favorite music (over 8,000 hours worth of songs) and photos (holds over 350,000), to create a virtual memory box. Or, you can convert all your family’s home movies from VHS format to digital, and then load them on a FreeAgent drive to protect them forever and create a gift that is literally priceless.
My computer has been groaning lately with the thousands of pictures I have been storing over the years. My husband has been transferring all of our CDs to digital and also had a stuffed PC. With this one Seagate FreeAgent Go we were able to move everything over and free up tons of room on our PCs. I did keep the best of my photos on the PC and now I feel much more secure knowing that I have them backed up since they are in two places – on my computer AND on the Seagate FreeAgent – no more fear of losing all our memories!
