Seagate last month introduced two new products for home theatres and home networkds, the FreeAgent Theatre and Media Player and the FreeAgent Dockstar. According to Seagate both devices are to help us manage our home entertainment libraries. In most homes we store our movies, downloaded videos, music and digital photos on different Medias and in different places. The FreeAgent Theatre and Media player and FreeAgent Dockstar will help you to access, manage and enjoy these from one central location.
