CES 2007 has brought a few hot items and it’s only Monday. Seagate officially announced the FreeAgent line of external hard drives, managing to stay to true serious storage capacity while placing drives into more visually pleasing packages.
The top of the heap FreeAgent Pro models range from 320GB ($230) to a nicely sized 750GB ($450) and come with a six-month subscription to Seagate Internet Drive.
The capacity for the online service is only 500MB but that’s a good option to have. Surely Seagate is looking for users to become addicted to this option and pony up the money to keep it. This new line of drives is a great way to market the service. Also included with FreeAgent Pro models is an external SATA connector.
Desktop Data Movers are seemingly the “basic” version of the FreeAgent line and range from 250GB ($130) to 500GB ($260). Paperback sized portable “Go” versions are equipped with USB 2.0 ports and sized at 80GB ($130) and 120GB ($180) respectively. There is also a Go Small 12GB model for $150. Drives expected in stores February.
