The last Seagate drive that I reviewed was the 1TB portable version of Backup plus. The one that I’ve recently received from Seagate is the desktop 3TB version. Unlike the portable version, the desktop version requires an AC adapter to power up the drive.

Although it should be of news that during CES 2013, a newer USB 3.0 version was being showcased to offer 10Gbps throughput and up to 65w of supply. Its very good considering you can power up such large storage drives in a single cable and a throughput ability as same as thunderbolt cables- but as many know thunderbolt costs money, USB cables don’t !

But that’s a standard which may come during 2014. So we’ll need to wait for that.

3TB is a very generous amount of space for a lot of people. Many desktop users have a lot of storage drives in their tower-type systems, primary drive for OS and well as secondary drives. How quick is this drive?
