Seagate has added yet another member to the award winning family of GoFlex external storage devices. The new GoFlex Slim not only comes in an extremely small package (as the Slim portion of the name might imply), but it also offers high speed data transfers thanks to having a 7200RPM drive with 16MB of cache memory connected via USB 3.0.

Many times, when it comes to saving space with an external drive, performance is what suffers. Seagate recognized that just because you want your drive to be small doesn't mean you have more time to wait for data transfers. They sum it up best on their website with the following statement:

"This ultra-cool drive delivers ultra-fast, ultra-portable on-the-go storage."

Before taking a look at the sample sent over for review to see just how small and just how fast it really is, let's take a look at some of the published data found on the official product page on the Seagate website.

Features:

» So small—about the thickness of a #2 pencil—that it's perfect for pairing with your netbook,
   notebook, and other portable devices
» Its ultra-slim anodized design is perfect for taking your data on-the-go. It not only helps resist
   against damage during transport, it also adds a unique and stylish finish to the drive.
» Features a fast 7200 RPM internal drive and USB 3.0 plug-and-play connectivity for up to 10x
   faster transfer speeds
» Includes backup software with powerful encryption technology, ensuring that your files are
   always safe and secure
» Makes it easy for you to sync files between your computer and your GoFlex Slim Performance drive,
   so that you have the latest files while on-the-go
» Lets you restore previous file versions from your backups with ease
» Includes the Seagate® Dashboard management tool for easy management of your backups and
   file encryption, and at-a-glance available drive capacity

» Spin Speed (RPM): 7200 RPM

While it would be nice to have higher capacity options, this drive is only available with a 320GB capacity. 320GB doesn't go as far it might have a few years ago, and I know that I could fill this drive up with out really trying. But, in order to offer the slim design and high performance that they are touting, I can understand why a fairly low capacity is necessary.
