Seagate GoFlex

How much is enough? Well, nothing is actually. At a time when not only having a good storage device is a concern, but what more can be derived from it also, the Seagate GoFlex external hard disk is something that looks like fulfilling that desire for ‘more’. Add to that the GoFlex TV HD media player, and it’s a super combo.

That’s good


The USB 2.0 plug-and-play device has a solid 500 GB capacity. The 1TB ones are also available. Now that’s some serious space. Unusually sleek for an external hard drive, it has got some great colours on the offing. Compatible with both Windows PC and Mac operating systems, the media player lets you play music, movies and pictures from the USB on your TV. And it works without a glitch.

Not so cool

: Well, nothing, for the heck of it. The 2.0 devices are upgradeable to 3.0 with connective wire. Though 3.0 isn’t the norm in the present scenario, but then it’s a futuristic move. Also, there are hard disk drives available in the market from which you can play movies and music directly, but the output quality is always a question.Go for it? We think, you should atleast check it out.

At Rs 6500 for a 500 GB backup, and Rs 12000 for the media player to go with, you actually have a complete storage cum plug-n-play solution.
