Putting more terabytes in the hands of consumers worldwide, Seagate, the leader in hard drives and storage solutions, today announced the world's first 3 Terabyte (TB) external desktop drive.
Available immediately, the 3TB FreeAgent GoFlex Desk external hard drive helps meet the explosive worldwide demand for digital content storage in both the home and office.
With 3TB of capacity, people can store up to 120 HD movies, 1,500 video games, thousands of photos or countless hours of digital music.
A key addition to the company's recently introduced GoFlex family of hard drives, the 3TB GoFlex Desk external drive couples immense capacity with the flexibility to adapt the drive's USB 2.0 interface to a USB 3.0 or FireWire 800 connection to meet varying performance and transfer speed needs.
Consumers can easily create, store and access content from either a Windows or Mac OS X computer on the GoFlex Desk external drive, thanks to an included NTFS driver for Mac.
In a statement today, Dave Mosley, Seagate executive vice-president of sales, marketing and product line management said: "Consumer capacity demands are quickly outpacing the needs of business as people continue to collect high-definition videos, photos and music.
He said Seagate has a tradition of designing products that break into new storage frontiers to meet customer requirements and the 3TB GoFlex Desk external drive is no exception - delivering the highest-capacity storage solution available today.
