Seagate unveils 1.5TB GoFlex external drive
Seagate has unveiled a 1.5TB portable drive addition to its GoFlex storage family
Digital file hoarders and multimedia fans looking for a portable drive solution will no doubt salivate uncontrollably at the announcement of a 1.5TB FreeAgent GoFlex solution from Seagate. The compact drive comes with a USB 3.0 interface, 192-bit Triple DES encryption and is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems.
Seagate's claiming an industry first with the immediate release of the latest addition to its GoFlex storage family. As well as squeezing 1.5TB of storage into a 2.5-inch (6.35-cm) form factor, the company has also given its new baby a USB 3.0 interface, which offers users up to ten times faster transfer speeds over USB 2.0.
The 4.71 x 3.51 x 0.87-inch (120 x 89 x 22mm) drive is Windows and Mac compatible and capable of storing volumes and volumes of music, hundreds of video games or up to 60 high definition movies – and Seagate has started the ball rolling by pre-installing a selection.
The Go-Flex 1.5TB ultra-portable drive is available now in the U.S. for US$249.99, with a global roll-out following later in the year.

Man, I want this
What movies are pre-installed? \"Attack of the Killer Tomatoes\"? or \"Lord of the Rings\" in HD?
A great explanation of what\'s happening right now.
But I\'m positive that 3 TB SATA drives (at least enterprise raid versions) should be coming out soon. With a big fat sticker that reads \"DO NOT USE AS A BOOT DRIVE WITH A NON-UEFI BIOS\".
