Harddrives : a critical part of any personal computer. They store our personal data, files, operating systems and much more. Over the last decade, the industry has gone through some major changes both in terms of the hardware and the companies involved.
Seagate is one of an increasingly small number of harddrive vendors to stick through tough times and keep on producing good gear. Founded in 1979, the company stayed at the forefront of the industry making the first 5.25" harddrive, the first 7,200 RPM diskdrive, and the first fiber channel interface disk drive.
Today, we're looking at a portable harddrive from Seagate. It's basically a small (2.5") harddrive packed inside a strong shell with a high speed, USB 2 adaptor on rear; it's also got a bright blue LED light for good measure. Seagate offer two version of the drive; a 40gig version and a 100gig version - we looked at the 100gig version. Read on the review!
