FreeAgent GoFlex is a classic look device - Smooth, curved edges, with a separate connector between the cable and the hard disk itself. There's a LED on this connector which tells you when there's proper electrical contact. It is robust enough and one can separately store the cable away. This way it's built for portability. The file transfer rate is pretty good with both the 2.0 and the 3.0 versions with 25 to 30 Mbps and 70 to 80 Mbps transfer rate respectively. The only problem one might face with this product is that the connectivity might wear out due to wear and tear, meaning, the electrical connection is still left intact while your computer might not be able to recognise the device. Under such a circumstance you'll have to replace the connector which is a little costly and very annoying. However this happens rarely, but is definitely a possibility. Overall a descent product. Would have been perfect if not for the occasional connection problems.
