Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex, Opinions?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well, after years and years of trusting the hard drive to never crap out on me, I think I better get an external and back my stuff up before my luck runs out. Especially since I kept getting a message from from the Rapid Storage thing on my computer that was telling me my Caviar Black was crapping out on me.

So I've been lookin at the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex, any opinions or experiences with this one? I plan on getting a 2Tb drive.

Thanks!

EDIT: Also, would the 7200 and 5900 make a huge difference in speed? For 100 bucks I can get a 2Tb with 5900, or for 120 I can get a 1Tb with 7200. I'm thinkin the 2Tb one is more worth it since I'm not really in dire need of speed, I'm just using this for storage and stuff.

The Speed is pretty noticeable if you ask me. I have several drives and Accessing stuff from my 5900 is slightly slower. but its bareable. so if its for storage. You're good with the
2TB.

Well, I just read some reviews and it seems that this drive fails a lot. Any experience with it? I might just go with an external enclosure.
