Seagate intros first 3TB drive

Written by Fudzilla staff



FreeAgent GoFlex Desk

Seagate has started shipping the world’s first consumer 3TB hard drive in the guise of the FreeAgent GoFlex Desk.

The company hasn’t revealed the full specs of the 3.5-inch drive used in the FreeAgent, so we still don’t know the RPM or the cache size. However, it’s quite obvious that it will be the first hard drive maker to offer a proper 3TB desktop drive.

In addition, the new 3TB drive is priced rather reasonably. It costs $249, which is $70 more than the 2TB unit and less than twice as expensive than the 1TB drive from the same series.

Thanks to its modular design, the FreeAgent GoFlex Desk can be equipped with three adapter kits that enable FireWire or USB 3.0 support.

You can check it out here.

Very few people need that much space... When are SSDs going to have a competitive price?

Quoting Haberlandt:
When are SSDs going to have a competitive price?
When developers recoup the money they've invested in the tech... but since the tech always moves forward, it should take a while. Next year with 20nm memory chips available on the market should make SSD's price per GB more aforable.

the only thing I can imagine these drives being good for is media centers for HD film storage, but then again, people complain that no-one needs that much space, but I bet they wouldn't mind having it

Bought 2 x 1.5TB Seagates in 2008 and that is still enough for my needs. 3TB in one physical drive is quite impressive though.
