Default Seagate is the First Manufacturer to Break the Capacity Ceiling with a New 4TB GoFlex

Seagate today announced it is shipping a new 4TB GoFlex® Desk external hard drive – the highest capacity hard drive in the industry. This latest addition to the GoFlex Family of external hard drives showcases Seagate’s new desktop design. The streamlined industrial design delivers a smaller footprint and better reflects the aesthetic of today’s modern offices while still providing all of the benefits of previous generations of the GoFlex drives. The new 4TB GoFlex Desk drive is now available from Hard Drives | Seagate and will be available from select online retailers within the month for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $249.99 USD. The entire line of GoFlex Desk products will also adopt the new industrial design in the coming weeks. The GoFlex Desk for Mac external drive featuring both FireWire 800 and USB 2.0 will be available in Apple stores by the end of the month.

Some say its a single 3.5" FOUR platter drive. Others are saying it uses five platters. No idea if its 5400rpm or 7200rpm but it is indeed a single 3.5" drive inside it.
