Seagate Unleashes the Largest Consumer External Drive the World Has Ever Seen

Seagate’s new, largest-in-the-world GoFlex Desk external hard drive ($250) weighs in at a strapping four terabytes. I know, that’s only one terabyte more than their next biggest desktop drive; but that’s enough storage space for 30.3 million more press images like the ones above; 833,333 more GoFlex user guides; or 2,272 more videos of me trying to duct tape some gadget to my forehead in a hilariously misguided attempt to gain interesting yet incredibly useless data about something or other.

The new GoFlex Desk is only available with a bundled USB 3.0 connector, but the modular nature of the GoFlex family means that FireWire (or hopefully soon, Thunderbolt) can be purchased separately.
