Seagate (http://www.seagate.com) has unveiled the GoFlex Turbo performance drive with SafetyNet data recovery services (DRS).
The company says that SafetyNet data recovery is the first recovery service offering by a hard drive manufacturer to be included as part of the purchase price of an external drive. With the latest super speed USB 3.0 interface and RPMs clocked at 7200, the GoFlex Turbo drive is equipped to handle transfer speeds up to 40% faster than that of its USB 2.0, 5400-RPM siblings. Alas, the Mac doesn’t support USB 3.0, so drives with this interface will run at USB 2.0 speeds.
The new GoFlex Turbo performance drive features two-years of SafetyNet data recovery services. It’s available from Best Buy for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$119.99 for 500GB models and $139.99 for 750GB versions.
