"Seagate launched the world’s first 4TB drive today, but you can’t just pop round the corner and get yourself one just yet. First of all the 4TB GoFlex is an external 3.5-inch drive, naked desktop variants will follow soon. Secondly, the drive is only available through www.seagate.com, but a few lucky retailers will have it in stock shortly. The price stands at $249, which sounds fair. On the tech side of things, the drive is pretty much your regular run of the mill 3.5-inch external drive. It supports USB 3.0, which seems like a good idea given the immense capacity, but there is no eSATA on board."

Have a pair of 3TB Western Digital Greens in my NAS box now (QNAP TS-239 Pro II+ .. raid-0 with weekly automated backup). With 6TB of space, I am no where near filling it yet.

As these are external, they look like a good backup solution for my NAS if they had eSATA. My NAS does not have USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 is out of the question for this task.
