Pros The drive is compact and can fit in your shirt pocket. Also the price was very attractive for 500 GB.
Cons Drive doesn't detect on Windows 7 explorer.
Summary I used the USB/Firewire cable which came along with the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 500 GB on the other Seagate FreeAgent Portable HD and it works fine, but when connected back, doesn't detect it. The online forum suggest restarting the windows, which is ridiculous. If I have to reboot every time I connect the drive, it is sheer waste of time. With this experience, Seagate brand has lost some of the credibility. I will try to contact the toll-free number for the issue but will be very careful buying any Seagate brand products in future.
