Seagate introduces first 4TB drive

Written by


$249 for external version
Seagate launched the world’s first 4TB drive today, but you can’t just pop round the corner and get yourself one just yet.

First of all the 4TB GoFlex is an external 3.5-inch drive, naked desktop variants will follow soon. Secondly, the drive is only available through www.seagate.com, but a few lucky retailers will have it in stock shortly. The price stands at $249, which sounds fair.

On the tech side of things, the drive is pretty much your regular run of the mill 3.5-inch external drive. It supports USB 3.0, which seems like a good idea given the immense capacity, but there is no eSATA on board.

The new drive also proves Fudzilla can do a story about a big hard drives with no porn jokes. (Well, technically that is one. sub.ed.)

External drives...I don't have anything against them but the problem is that a lot of manufacturers will use two drives in RAID 0 and a lot of people use external drives for backup purposes. Kudos to fellow techies who look out for the best interests of their family, friends and clients in such regards.

So the problem I want to point out is what drives are actually being used? Are they using a single 4TB drive or two 2TB drives in RAID 0? I imagine the later of course.

the MBbs is a new kind of measuring the speed? weird, I'm a tech guy and I really don't knew that! :P

Probably you mean megabit per second or mbps and usually when you want to say megabyte per second you put MB in capital when writing - just a friendly advice :}

P.S. Hint: The network(even internet is a big network) is always measured in megabit per second(mbps) and the speed of data in computers, hdd, ssd etc is usually measured in megabyte per second(MBps)

There are many weird people that live in japan or elsewhere with HUGE internet lines.. I have a simple adsl line at 24mbps(theoriti cal) and works about at 12-15mbps(it depents on weather..people etc :P) which is quite good :D).. So my answer is no I didn't.

I actually do have a 40Mbps connection. I am in the process of replacing 3x 1TB drives with 3x 3TB drives. Oh it will be grand! ::rubs hands greedily::
