Simply pair the desktop hard drive with a GoFlex USB 3.0 or FireWire 800/USB 2.0 adapter to increase your performance by up to 10 times. Works interchangeably between a PC or a Mac computer."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//dht/auto/1278130853.usr1.png" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>Sweet mother of megabytes! That's a crazy amount of storage right there - 3000 GB to be exact. Well, OK, not exactly because of the whole 1024 bytes thing, but close enough. The GoFlex Desk uses the GoFlex cable system, which means you can swap out the USB 2.0 cable for a USB 3.0 cable once you get a PC that has USB 3.0, or you can switch to an eSATA &nbsp;cable or Firewire 800 cable as well. Not bad! Another interesting thing is the Mac OS X compatibility - Seagate offers an NTFS driver on the drive, and once you install it on your Mac, it can read and write to the drive without trouble. I've tested this technology, and it works great. So, is there a 3 TB drive in your future?</p>
