Seagate reveals 'first' 3TB external desktop drive

Storage monster

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Seagate had become, it claimed today, the world's first hard drive maker to ship a 3TB external hard drive.

Part of the company's 3.5in FreeAgent GoFlex Desk line-up, the unit comes with a USB 2.0 adaptor, but you can buy USB 3.0 and Firewire 800 plug-on ports if you fancy something faster.

Pre-formatted with Windows' NTFS file system, the drive comes with a read-and-write NTFS driver for Mac OS X.

There's no word yet on UK availability and pricing, but in the US, the 3TB drive retails for $250 (£166). ®
