Inside the Box



Seagate has focused its Freeagent Pro at the desktop segment market, with no expense spared. Seagate has done a good job on the package; the box the drive is shipped in is white with a full colour photo on the front along with some basic feature set info along with the size and interface supported.



On the back there is another colour photo of the drive, but no useful info is included, just a bunch of marketing hype on the drive.



The documentation included in the box is very simple but effective, being a simple setup you only need to plug in the power and an interface cable, depending on what your drive comes with.



The cables and accessories included for our model were a power converter and a USB 2.0 cable. Our drive does support both USB and eSATA but no eSATA cable was included, a definite strike against the drive. If you have eSATA on your board and want to use the eSATA interface you're going to need to buy an extra cable.
