Seagate GoFlex Desk 4TB USB 3.0 External Drive Review

Everything USB is pleased to announce our latest review on Seagate GoFlex Desk 4TB USB 3.0 External Drive.

Not that we had any doubts they’d someday exist, but four terabyte hard drives are finally a reality. Seagate earns the marks this time around for being first, curiously choosing to deliver their 7,200 RPM behemoth exclusively as an external drive for the time being. USB 3.0 benchmarks, fancy photos, commentary and goblins all await you in our in-depth review of the Seagate GoFlex Desk 4TB. Well, maybe not the goblins. To the review!

The Seagate GoFlex Desk 4TB is the drive to buy if you’re into space monoliths, speed and cross-platform compatibility. Not that there’s any 4TB competition at the moment… The Good:

  • Sleek monolithic design
  • Passively convection cooled
  • Excellent R/W speeds for a HDD
  • 7,200 RPM
  • USB 3.0/2.0 compatible
  • Can be converted for FireWire 400/800
  • Real-time backups monitor for changes

The Bad:

  • 2-year warranty
  • Lacks a power button
  • Not designed for horizontal placement
  • Software incompatible with ASmedia-based USB 3.0 controllers
