"The Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Ultra-portable offers great flexibility, USB 3.0, and a large amount of storage. It also works with both Macs and PCs without having to be reformatted."
The GoFlex Ultra's USB 3.0 performance could be better and the drive doesn't include a USB 3.0 add-in card for computers that don't yet have this connection.
"Even with the slightly low USB 3.0 performance, the GoFlex Ultra still makes an excellent portable external hard drive for people who need to expand their computer's storage."

Great portable USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 hard drive. I use the hard drive primarily with a seagate media player and it affords lots of room for movies, pictures and music. I have two media players and two STAA1000101 1TB Ultra-Portable drives I use with them. Seagate has adopted a nice modular design with the GoFlex Ultra-portable (and GoFlex Desk) series of external USB hard drives. The GoFlex drives are fully USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 compatible, depending on the interface cable (or base for the Desk drives). This modularity allows the drives to work as Network Attached Storage (NAS) drives with the network adapter bases. Two GoFlex Ultra-Portable drives can be networked with the two-slot GoFlex NAS base, and then taken on the go as portable drives whenever desired. Likewise the GoFlex Desk drives can also be operated as NAS drives (with network base), or used simply as USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 external hard drives. I plan on purchasing additional Seagate Media Players and the GoFlex Ultra-Portable drive as gifts for other family members. The combination provides an easy and great way to share family pictures and home movies. My experience has been very positive with this product, the drive is fast and thus far very reliable.
Be very carefully with this Hard Drive When u plug in to the Pc and try to transfer any files or movies the drives dies or the pc say hard drive not found u really need to spend more money and buy SEAGATE, STAE100 FreeAgent GoFlex Cable USB 2.0.
this product works like a charm right out of the box. even with usb 2.0, speeds are good. i selected 1000 over files adding up to 400gb and transferred all at one go, and it didnt pop up with any transfer error or hang. all files were transferred successfully. product is so slim.
1) it uses a special usb cable, so u have to bring this cable around with u as well as u cannot afford to lose it.
2) as a buyer, of course i wanna much cheaper price. i am talking in terms of singapore dollars.
I purchased a Seagate 1TB External Hard Drive from ebay a short time ago as I had a ton of old photos I wanted to copy & save. I've started sorting, classifing copying & saving them on my new Seagate Hard Drive and it works perfectly. Once I get them all copied I intend to transfer them to DVD format, narrate and add background music for my kids & grand kids to have someday. I love the product, the price was reasonable and I would purchase another in a heartbeat if necessary -thanks Ebay!
This is really an Excellent external HD, not only because the compact size and the high storage capacity but for the installation software which sincronizes the HD with your PC so that every time you plug it in saves and update all new data since last time they were connected!
Excellent to storage and backup all the information you have in home or company's PC's
I recommend also to buy a case to storage this HD (from $10 to $20) to protect your investment!
