Seagate has announced a new external storage a solution called the FreeAgent GoFlex that it claims to be the world's first 3TB external storage solution. The new drive ships with USB 2.0 connectivity.

However, you can change the drive to USB 3.0 connectivity with a new GoFlex module and a module is available for FireWire 800 as well. Seagate should have just used the USB 3.0 module since it is backwards compatible and saved us some money.

I guess it wanted to pad the accessory sales a bit. The new drive sells for $249.99 in 3TB capacity and can be had in 1TB and 2TB versions. The drive ships with a slick NTFS driver that lets both Mac and Windows machines store to the drive without having to reformat.
