Seagate Ups The Ante Again, Introduces New 4TB GoFlex Desk Drive

Seagate today announced it is shipping a new 4TB GoFlex Desk external hard drive – the highest capacity hard drive in the industry. The streamlined industrial design delivers a smaller footprint and better reflects the aesthetic of today’s modern offices while still providing all of the benefits of previous generations of the GoFlex drives. The new 4TB GoFlex Desk drive is now available from www.seagate.com and will be available from select online retailers within the month for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $249.99 USD. The entire line of GoFlex Desk products will also adopt the new industrial design in the coming weeks. The GoFlex Desk for Mac external drive featuring both FireWire 800 and USB 2.0 will be available in Apple stores by the end of the month. The new GoFlex Desk 4TB drive has the space to contain over 2,000 HD movies. The GoFlex drives are also Windows and Mac OSX compatible and have the flexibility to go between both operating systems. In addition to cross-platform compatibility, the GoFlex Desk drive can also be utilized with the GoFlex Home adapter if one chooses to use it as a network drive. Let’s be real about this, Seagate is really playing against themselves right now, 4TB is a ridiculous amount of storage and at this price point if you need lots of storage then this is definitely the play. To give you so perspective, a family of 5 could easily store all their digital photos, movies and music on this one drive and more than likely still have tons of space.

The included USB 3.0 adapter also works with USB 2.0 ports making it easy to connect to your Windows or Mac computer. The adapter also features an illuminated gauge to display available space on the drive.
