Seagate 5.0GB Pocket Hard Drive
Posted on: 30.01.2005 01:00:00

Seagate was founded in 1979 and was the first company to build 5.25-inch hard disc drives for the PC. And while it may have seemed like a minor milestone at the time, today this hard disc drive introduction is regarded as one event that helped fuel the PC revolution. Suddenly, people could access unprecedented amounts of information, which eventually gave rise to the Internet and other developments. And for nearly a quarter of a century, Seagate has been developing the technology and manufacturing the products that helped make it all happen.


I have been lucky enough to spend the last few weeks using there new 5 gig pocket drive, yes you hear right 5 gigs. Now normally wouldn’t be so enthusiastic about a pocket drive and have always said since the day they hit the market there good but come on 128, then with the emergence of 512 a 1 gig variations I thought now were getting somewhere but well what about a home movie or say all my review software, testing ect that exceeds 2 gig now a device that can store all that would truly be amazing..
