Seagate has new addition in GoFlex family of hard drives
Seagate has introduced its latest addition to its GoFlex family of hard drives in the form of the GoFlex Home network storage system. This is an easy-to-use device which will be hooked up to a wireless router, letting virtually an entire household to centrally store, easily access and continuously back up files sans wires from both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems over the home network. Such a centralized storage system will further simplify the backup process by being compatible with Apple Time Machine, not to mention featuring a version of the backup application that will play nice on both Windows and Mac OS X platforms. Not only that, the GoFlex Home storage system is also able to let you stream photos, movies and music to most network connected DLNA devices (inclusive of game consoles or a GoFlex TV HD media player) without the need for any wirees from any room in the house. Setting it up isn’t rocket science – you need just a couple of cable connections and a simple, illustrated, step-by-step installation tool which will get you ready to rock and roll within minutes.
You can choose from 1TB and 2TB capacities, depending on your needs at the moment as well as for the future. The GoFlex Home storage system offers a whole lot of storage space to help retain precious digital memories for this generation and the next. Another advantage over single-drive network solutions would be its modular design that allows the included drive to be upgraded when it becomes too small for your needs – all you need to do is remove the drive from the base and replace it with a larger capacity GoFlex Desk hard drive – this can be easily done without the need for any tools just in case you were wondering. Additional external storage can be added on the spot thanks to its USB port, which said port can also be used to wirelessly share a USB printer if you have a computer hooked up on the same network.
Interested? The new GoFlex Home network storage system will retail for $159.99 and $229.99 for the 1TB and 2TB models, respectively.
