Seagate GoFlex Turbo External Hard Drive Released
Seagate has added another offering to their line of GoFlex external hard drives, the GoFlex Turbo. The Turbo is highlighted by SafetyNet data recovery services. While many external drives have some sort of recovery service available, the Turbo includes two years of the service as part of the purchase price. Inside, Seagate is using a 7200 RPM 2.5" drive that connects via USB 3.0.
Should something go wrong and the drive inside the Turbo gets damaged, the SafetyNet service covers one recovery attempt over the two-year service period. Send the drive in for recovery and the lab will do its best to recover as much of the data as possible.
Pricing and Availability
The GoFlex Turbo is available in a 500GB capacity for $119.99 or 750GB capacity for $139.99.
