Seagate 200GB Push Button External Hard Drive Review

Posted on 2004-07-12 23:05:00 by LSDsmurf

The new Seagate External Drive series encompasses three separate products: 160GB Hi-Speed USB drive; 160GB Hi-Speed USB & Firewire 400 (1394a) drive; 200GB Hi-Speed USB & Firewire 400 (1394a) drive. The 200GB model was put to test in this review. The new Seagate external drives seems to have followed the lead of the other drive manufacturers in creating a one-button backup external USB drive. What may be different in Seagate's case is that each facet of the drive is absolutely top-notch. The enclosure supports USB 2.0 and Firewire (IEEE 1394). The drive itself is both a 7200RPM drive and also sports 8MB cache memory for faster sequential transfers (backups are sequential in nature).
