Seagate has introduced yet another variant of external USB 3.0 HDD for the market and it’s coming with the popular SafetyNet data recovery services (DRS). What this SafetyNet service do is to give one recovery attempt on the GoFlex Turbo drive withing a two-year period. Seagate’s Data Recovery Specialists will make the judgment whether remote or in-lab service is the best way to recover your lost data.
As for the Seagate GoFlex Turbo, this performance USB 3.0 hard drive is clocked at 7200RPM, capable of handling transfer speeds up to 40-percent faster than USB 2.0 5400RPM hard drive.
Of course, since it’s a rotary type of hard drive, this storage solution is still pretty fragile unlike SSDs. However, that’s where the SafetyNet data recovery services come to play when something bad happened in the two-year period.
This Seagate GoFlex Turbo is currently available at Best Buy for $119.99 (500GB) and $139.99 (750GB).
