The GoFlex Slim boasts a tiny 7200 RPM internal drive and USB 3.0 connectivity, which should result in some impressive file transfer speeds. We'll take a look at some performance benchmarks later on in the review.
Out of the box, the drive works interchangeably with both PC's and Macs – the only caveat for Mac users is that the drive must be formatted to HFS+ to use backup software for Mac or Time Machine.
