From the article I understand that the SATA connector from the HDD is used directly to connect to the dock. Is this correct? According to the SATA spec, that connector is guaranteed to work up to 50 insertions, versus the 5000 for the eSATA. Is Seagate providing any numbers regarding how many insertions the GoFlex Home can withstand?

The Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Home is a piece of rubbish. DO NOT BUY IT.

Well I brought one of these and I have to agree it is a nice piece of kit but let down by woefully inadequate speeds for transferring files. I have a maxtor sitting inside my pc (also seagate) and that flys at 45mpbs. while I appreciate this is because its internal I can't see why seagate couldnt make the goflex fly. I've been transferring almost a terabyte of information since monday from one partition to the other on the same drive and only get 5mbps. Bad bad bad. I think Seagate have made a bit of a white elephant with this. I think they designed a bad dock and if they could get it faster I'd be chuffed.

Also paying seagate an extra ten bucks for their pro software is a scandal when you've already paid out a large outlay for the goflex

I have had this drive for about a year to back up my WD world book. I know these drives are cheap, but they are absolute junk. Read and write speed is sub 1MB/s and the admin interface always times out. I have reset it numerous times. Time to bite the bullet and buy a synology. The only good news is I should be able to break it open and re-use the 1TB disk inside. This is not fast or reliable enough even for home use.
