The Seagate WS-110 will set you back $139.99 for the 1 Terabyte model which is very good considering the size, performance and flexibility of the WS-110. This actually makes it a better value than the 500GB Freeagent Go at $119.99. I know I would not have a problem with getting the extra speed and capacity for a mere $20.
Seagate offers a five-year warranty on the WS-110; they offer online support as well as a technical support number. You can also visit their forums to find the answers to a few more common questions.
I have to say that I am impressed with the BlackArmor WS-110. It really is a step up over your average consumer external drive. The fact that it is compatible with existing products [Seagate Manager] can work with 64-bit systems and has the mass of features that it does makes it excellent for just about any need. I found that it worked great as a work space drive, I was able to place large video and still image files there without cluttering up my main HDD. The e-SATA connection meant that I was able to maintain acceptable speeds for my editing needs. I was also able to run a complete Linux VM on the drive while still using it for my editing.
The backup software is nothing short of amazing. The extra features and full range of backup options certainly makes the WS-110 excellent as a backup option. I particularly like the option to run incremental backups on a schedule with a full backup being automatically run without the need to setup two different schedules. The compression and encryption options combined with the advanced open file capabilities mean you will have a very good means for protecting you data.
Whether you are a basic user or a prosumer the inexpensive yet powerfully functional BlackArmor WS-110 Direct Attached Storage device comes with our highest recommendation for your backup and storage needs.
