Rudolph's Gift Guide Day 27: Seagate Portable Hard Drive Review & Giveaway!

**Contest Closed**
This morning I was doing some graphic design work that I've been putting off. Since the laptop can be slow at times, and the mouse cumbersome to deal with when trying to "draw", I decided to continue my project on the desktop computer. Usually, I just grab a flash drive and move files that way, but the flash drive wasn't large enough for my high res files. After deleting a few things, the drive was still short on space. I was getting frustrated, VERY frustrated, and then I realized that the Free Agent Go by Seagate was sitting in the cabinet waiting to be reviewed.

What a life saver! I know that a lot of mommy bloggers can relate. My laptop gets the most use simply because it's portable. I need to watch my daughter, so I deal with the sometimes unpredictable wireless network when I've got to multitask. When I am able to, I prefer to work in the office on my desktop. It's faster, I can use the old-fashioned mouse, and most importantly, I can concentrate on my writing. Since I don't work soley on one or the other, I must be able to access the same files from both computers. The Free Agent Go that I received, with 500GB, will allow me to accomplish this task effortlessly. It's also sleek and stylish, offered in the following colors: Titanium Silver, Tuxedo Black, Royal Blue, Sky Blue, Solar Orange, Think Pink, Champagne Gold, Forest Green, Spring Green, and my choice, Ruby Red. Isn't she pretty? The unit measures approximately 5" x 3", making it easily portable, but not so small that it's easy to misplace.

Key features of the Free Agent Go:

  • Store photos, music, and other files
  • Carry your data anywhere you want
  • Sync data between computers
  • Use it as a Back up for files on your computer's hard drive

I can't agree more with this statement, on the Seagate website: "Your digital content is priceless. Seagate storage solutions make your photos, music, movies, games, and documents more accessible, more enjoyable, and more secure."

Don't you really want one of these, or do you know someone who would flip over it this Christmas? BUY IT! The Free Agent Go sells for $89.99 - $229.99, depending on storage capacity.

Or, you can also WIN IT! Seagate has generously offered a Free Agent Go portable hard drive to one extremely lucky reader! U.S. Residents Only.

  94. Im a facebook fan of seagate and i would want the pink because i would give it to my MIL because she has so many pictures on her computer that it slows her computer down. She seriously takes a TON at every holiday plus with all the grandkids and friends always sending her pictures she just gets overloaded. I think it would be great for her to just store all the pictures on the portable harddrive!
