Seagate FreeAgent Go, Capacity: 500GB or 1TB

Why we like it: The FreeAgent Go offers large capacity, folder-level syncing, and individual file selection.

The Seagate FreeAgent Go comes in two capacities: a 500GB model (shown) for $145, and a heftier 1TB version for $199. Both versions of the drive come with a handy docking station for easier storage.

Though the FreeAgent Go has only a USB 2.0 port, its backup and security software supports folder-level syncing and allows you to modify file selections for your backups individually.
