From X-bit Labs:

Seagate Technology, a leading maker of hard drives, announced Tuesday the industry’s first desktop storage device with 3TB capacity. The first hard disk drive (HDD) with enormous storage space of 3GB comes as FreeAgent GoFlex external storage solution designed for backup and storing sensitive data.

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 3TB is based on an unknown 3.5” hard disk drive from Seagate and features USB 2.0 interface, which is not exactly fast to support rapid transfer of data. In order to speed up transmission of data between a personal computer and a FreeAgent GoFlex 3TB drive users will have to acquire a special desktop adapter: with FireWire or USB 2.0 ($49), with USB 3.0 ($39), with USB 3.0 bundled with a PCIe x1 USB 3.0 card ($79). The drive itself costs $249.
