Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 3TB USB3 External HDD reviews:

The reviews were pretty good when Seagate launched this 3.5-inch external drive, the world’s first 3 terabyte external hard drive. According to CNet, “The drive comes in a flexible design that makes adding more connections/features a snap,” continuing “Another great thing about this design is the fact these adapters can also be used with any internal SATA hard drives, of both the 2.5-inch (laptop) and the 3.5-inch (desktop) designs, even those not made by Seagate.”

TechCrunch explains that “The GoFlex adapter snaps through the external case and directly into the hard drive’s power and SATA connectors. This means that modders can easily and quickly integrate the hard drive into their systems temporarily.”
