I have USB 3.0 on my new computer, and a Western Digital My Book Essential USB 3.0 3 TB hard drive:
Good read/write with FreeBSD 9.0, and Linux on the System Rescue CD (http://sysresccd.org/).
I can't access this hard drive from NetBSD either from USB 3.0 port or USB 2.0 port.
I think FreeBSD 8.1 is in any case superseded by 8.2, hence no motivation to improve hardware support in 8.1.
