Paul Lilly

It's getting easier to carry your digital luggage from point A to point B thanks to ever increasing capacities in portable storage. Take for example Seagate's new 1.5TB FreeAgent GoFlex ultra-portable drive. According to Seagage, this ranks as the planet's first 1.5TB portable external drive.

"Today’s announcement is a 'triple-crown' of consumer technology—packaging record breaking capacity, blazingly fast USB 3.0 connectivity and the bonus of movie entertainment—making the 1.5TB GoFlex ultra-portable drive an unprecedented and innovative solution," said Darcy Clarkson , vice president of Global Retail Sales and Marketing for Seagate. "Bringing this solution to market on the heels of our 3TB GoFlex Desk drive and the Momentus XT solid state hybrid drive is proof of Seagate’s continuing technology leadership and tradition of setting storage industry milestones."

In addition to USB 3.0 connectivity, the FreeAgent GoFlex also features 192-bit triple DES encryption, automatic continuous backup, and Seagate's Dashboard management tool for managing backup schedules, viewing drive stats, and more.

The new drive is available now for $250.
