Seagate launches devices for digital media users

Storage manufacturer Seagate Technology on Tuesday launched its new line of storage products aimed at addressing the needs of users with digital media such as photos, music and videos.

Through its local distributor Millennium Computer Technology Corporation, Seagate introduced the FreeAgent series of external hard disc drives in mobile and desktop versions for both the Windows and Mac operating systems.

In the media launching held in Quezon City, Millennium Computer managing director Jeremy Tan said the new line is a refresh of the FreeAgent line which was launched last year.

The new line includes energy-saving features with encryption technology and software for synchronization and back-up.

The FreeAgent Go model is by far Seagate's sleekest model at 12.5 millimeters in height. It also sports a modern design with four colors to choose from -- red, blue, black and silver.

It is targeted at Windows and Mac users with at least one digital device such as a digital camera. For the Windows versions, it comes in 250GB, 320GB and 500GB. For the Mac, there is no 500GB model available.

"With up to 500GB of capacity, the FreeAgent Go bridges the gap between standard portable solutions and desktop solutions with enough storage to carry entire libraries of movies, pictures and music," Seagate said in a statement.

Its dock, which is sold separately, makes portable storage easy, added Tan.

The FreeAgent Desk models are targeted at users with at least one digital device but these models come in bigger capacities -- a minimum of 500GB and up to 1.5TB for both Windows and Mac versions.

The Desk models have automatic back-up software, software encryption technology and synchronization capabilities.

Users with heavy digital media requirements, such as creative professionals, are the targets of the FreeAgent XTreme model that comes in 500GB to 1.5TB capacities but supporting only the Windows platform.

The Xtreme model includes three interfaces -- eSATA, USB 2.0 and FireWire 400.

Tan said most of the products are already available in the local market through Seagate dealers but more models will be available before the end of the year.
