World’s First 4 TB External Drive!

September 7, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

“Just over a year ago Seagate introduced the world’s first 3TB hard drive. Although it shipped in an enclosure for external use, the Seagate GoFlex Desk was available with the very first 3.5” 3TB SATA hard drive. A couple of months later Seagate and Western Digital both followed up with standalone internal 3TB hard drives.

Today we’re reminded of that announcement as Seagate unveiled the world’s first 4TB hard drive. Once again the drive comes to us first in a GoFlex Desk enclosure with native USB 3.0 support. There’s an optional FireWire 800/USB 2.0 dock available using Seagate’s standard GoFlex connector. The GoFlex dock itself has four LEDs that give a rough indication of capacity.

The 4TB model retails for $249.99 and is available immediately with a 2-year warranty.”
