Seagate 3TB GoFlex HDD  (Source: Seagate)
Drive can be used with FireWire, USB 2.0, and USB 3.0 conenctions

Seagate today announced a new external HDD that has 3TB of storage space. This is the first 3TB external HDD in the world according to Seagate.  The new drive is called the Seagate 3TB FreeAgent GoFlex and connects via USB 3.0, USB 2.0, or FireWire 800 ports. The external HDD works with both Mac and Windows PCs – it ships with a NTFS driver for Mac systems.

"Consumer capacity demands are quickly out-pacing the needs of business as people continue to collect high-definition videos, photos and music," said Dave Mosley, Seagate executive vice president of Sales, Marketing and Product Line Management. "Seagate has a tradition of designing products that break into new storage frontiers to meet customer requirements and the 3TB GoFlex(TM) Desk external drive is no exception--delivering the highest-capacity storage solution available today." 

That NTFS Mac driver allows the external HDD to be accessed by both Mac and Windows PCs without needing to reformat the drive. The 3TB GoFlex is designed to be able to sit vertically or horizontally on the desktop. The drive is available now for $249.99 with a USB 2.0 adapter directly from Seagate and via select retailers. Additional GoFlex adapters are needed for use with FireWire or USB 3.0 connections.

I actually think this is great. At least they were able to develop a 3TB external hard disk. But I agree I hope they would have thought of using a port that would transfer faster.
