You might want to invest in Seagate’s newest external hard-drive which holds up to 3 Terabytes (TB) of data. The first of its kind on the market, the 3TB “FreeAgent GoFlex Desk” hard-drive will store about 120 HD movies, 1,500 video games, or thousands of photos and mp3s. The “GoFlex Desk” (a bit of a tongue twister) is the newest addition to the “GoFlex” product line which already includes 1TB and 2TB models.

The GoFlex Desk is compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems, including an NTFS driver for Mac which allows cross-platform compatibility. The drive comes standard with a USB 2.0 interface which can be upgraded to increase speed (up to 10x faster) by using a USB 3.0 or FireWire 800 adapter.

“Consumer capacity demands are quickly out-pacing the needs of business as people continue to collect high-definition videos, photos and music,” said Seagate executive Dave Mosley.

“Consumers who are active in digital media creation and consumption will witness their digital media storage needs grow nine-fold by 2014, driving the demand for higher capacity, easy-to-use storage solutions,” said Kurt Scherf, vice president and principle analyst of Parks Associates.

The funny thing is, Seagate hasn’t yet formally released the 3TB desktop drive that’s inside, but regardless, this makes a new high-water line for the others to catch up to.

The 3TB GoFlex Desk external hard drive is available from Seagate and select retailers for $249.99.
