Late last month we reported that Seagate took the covers off its 3TB FreeAgent GoFlex Desk external hard drive. Now the company swims across the seven seas and sails right into Indian markets with the 3TB FreeAgent GoFlex Desk hard drive. As the company suggests, this latest offering is known to be the world’s first 3TB external desktop drive.
The FreeAgent GoFlex also has the ability to adapt the USB 2.0 interface with a USB 3.0 or FireWire 800 connection. This enables them to successfully meet the required transfer speed and performance needs. With the NTFS driver for Mac embedded into the product, users can easily store and access all their content from a Windows or Mac OS X computer without having the need to reformat.
Rajesh Khurana, Country Manager – India and SAARC, Seagate Technology commented, “Consumer capacity demands are quickly out-pacing the needs of business as people continue to collect high-definition videos, photos and music. Seagate has a tradition of designing products that break into new storage frontiers to meet customer requirements and the 3TB GoFlex Desk external drive is no exception–delivering the highest-capacity storage solution available today.”
Kurt Scherf, vice president and principle analyst of Parks Associates stated, “As the definition quality of digital cameras increases, playback devices such as digital photo frames and MP3 players proliferate and the use of the Internet for downloading music and video continues to grow, more files accumulate in the home. 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.”
The 3TB FreeAgent GoFlex also offers continuous backup complete with software file encryption. Thanks to its sleek design, the 3.5-inch hard drive can fit perfectly into any desktop environment either horizontally or vertically. Drenched in a black hue, it caters to all the storage needs of Indians whether at work or home. The hard drive has the ability to hoard up to 120 HD movies, loads of photos and music as well as 1,500 video games, according to the company.
Seagate’s 3TB GoFlex Desk external drive with USB 2.0 adapter hits India priced at Rs. 18,500 and can be picked up from the company’s official website.
