Seagate Brightens the FreeAgent Go Portable HDD with New Colors

Seagate, the world’s leading provider of storage solutions, unveiled today a gift idea that will keep on giving for years to come. Originally introduced in September with a choice of four colors, the new award-winning FreeAgent Go portable hard drive is now available in all the colors of the rainbow, including: think pink, ruby red, solar orange, spring green, forest green, royal blue, sky blue, champagne gold, titanium silver and tuxedo black. The initial color options of ruby red, royal blue, tuxedo black and titanium silver are still offered and widely available.

Additionally, from November 28 th through the beginning of the New Year, those who register their new Seagate FreeAgent external storage solution will receive a multimedia package from leading online content providers.

The Seagate FreeAgent Go storage solution provides a slim, portable form factor with a load of space to back up and store all your valuable multimedia files from holiday memories to your favorite songs. With up to 500GB of available capacity, the FreeAgent Go portable hard drive has enough room to carry entire libraries of movies, music and pictures, making it a great gift for all the important people on your holiday shopping list.

Those who receive a Seagate FreeAgent external storage device this season will also have fun loading up their gift with new multimedia entertainment files thanks to the Seagate Load Me Up promotion. For a limited time, those who register their Seagate FreeAgent storage solution products will get 50 free songs from eMusic , the second largest digital music service; one free movie rental; and 50% off the first-year’s subscription to SmugMug , the leading professional photo-sharing destination on the web. The promotion will run from November 28, 2008 through January 31, 2009, giving people plenty of time to load up their FreeAgent Go hard drive even after they’ve put away all the holiday decorations. For complete details, visit on or after Friday, November 28.

“The FreeAgent Go portable hard drive is the industry’s slimmest 2.5-inch external storage device and the first to feature a convenient dock to eliminate the hassle of finding an available USB port each time to access content,” said Pat King, senior vice president of Consumer Solutions Division of Seagate Technology. Now, we’ve made the FreeAgent Go portable hard drive an even more attractive gift for this holiday season with colors and free access to digital entertainment. Seagate realizes that the value of an external hard drive correlates directly to the emotional connection people have with the content they store on the drive. Your photos, music and movies are a reflection of who you are. This is why we’ve partnered with some of the leaders in the digital content industry to provide our customers with a premium package of multimedia for their new drive. This along with the new colors should put the FreeAgent Go portable hard drive at the top of many wish lists this season.”

Available exclusively online through the Seagate web site at, the new colors for the FreeAgent Go portable hard drive are available in 250GB, 320GB and 500GB capacities at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $119.99 for 250GB, $149.99 for 320GB and $199.99 for 500GB. The FreeAgent Go desktop docking station is sold separately for an MSRP of $29.99 and comes paired with a black leatherette carrying case to provide protection from the bumps and scratches encountered while traveling in a back pack or hand bag.Source: Seagate

Another FreeAgent Go? I really curious why Seagate do not launch new product line.

Currently enterprise harddisk is ES.2 which release last year. WD kick off RE3 for a while now.
Western Digital release new green harddisk, too.

I just currently brought 2 new Western Blue harddisk recently but actually I love Seagate more than WD. Maybe Seagate have financial problem?
