Seagate is continuing to make the case that there’s a lot of life left in traditional hard drive storage.It has announced the GoFlex Slim, which it claims is the world’s thinnest external drive with thickness of just 9mm.
It spins at 7200 rpm and offers 320 GB of storage, and sports USB 3.0 connectivity for super-fast transfers. the drive is backward compatible with USB 2.0 devices, and it powers off the USB bus itself so there’s no power adapter to carry around.
It is Slim based on Seagate’s Momentus Thin hard drive, and supports for 192-bit Triple DES encryption so users can be assured their data is safe even if the drive is lost or stolen. and Seagate ships it with a USB 3.0 adapter and an 18-inch USB 3.0 cable. The drive comes formated for NTFS . it can also be paired up with TVs using Seagate’s GoFelx HD media player.
It is available now from Seagate and selected online retailers for a suggested price of $99.99.
