I remember a few months back hearing a rumor that Seagate was working on a massive 3TB hard-drive, well it looks as if they have finally done it. Just as they said they would, Seagate has announced their 3TB FreeAgent GoFlex Desk External Drive, which they claim to be the world’s first 3TB external desktop drive.
Right out of the box you get pre-loaded backup software with encryption, USB 2.0 adapter with capacity gauge, a 5-foot USB 2.0 cable, the quick guide start and of course the GoFlex Desk Drive. If you prefer to use USB 3.0 or FireWire, you can simply add an adapter that supports these connection types. Keep in mind that these adapters are not included and will cost extra.
I really like the design of the GoFlex Desk, with one of its main features being the interchangeable adapters that are included, in case you have more than one drive. 3TB is a huge amount of space and more than I will ever need, but for some, it may not be enough.
The Memeo Backup software that comes included is somewhat limited in its back-up capabilities. I felt like I was being prodded into buying or upgrading to their premium services every time I used it. For this reason, I suggest you do not install it, instead, consider using third party software.
Using 3.0 USB will of course give you much faster speeds, but I chose not buy the adapter and just use plain old 2.0 USB. I am not sure what I expected, but speed wise, USB 2.0 seemed somewhat average, so I did some tests and found out it was.
I tested the GoFlex for its writing and reading capabilities. The test showed a score of 37.2MBps for writing and 28.3MBps for reading, which puts it on par with other drives in its category. I can only imagine that how much faster USB 3.0 would be. If you do choose to upgrade, Seagate makes the transition seamless, with no nee to change drives or transfer any data.
It’s compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP operating system or Mac OS X operating system 10.4.9 or higher.
The GoFlex Desk comes with a two year warranty, and you can find all kinds of help at their forums.
3TB is a massive amount of storage space, I personally don’t see myself ever going to max this out, but times are changing, remember when 3GB was huge?
You can pick up the 3TB model for $199.99, or the slightly smaller 2TB version for $149.99.
