Have you ever had the experience of getting a new computer (like a new Macbook Pro) only to find out that this new computer doesn’t have the right port to connect to your portable hard drive (as in older Macbook Pros had a FW400 port and the new ones don’t, they have a FW800 port)? Fortunately, there are adapters you can buy to make the necessary connections. But what about your portable hard drive needs going forward? This new design by Seagate is a two component solution. It allows you to buy a small case for a 2.5 inch, 7200 rpm hard drive at a very reasonable price, then buy only the special adapter connectors you need for your equipment. CNET reviewed the new drive in the video below.
