I have one of the new 3TB drives:

da0: <Hitachi HUA723030ALA640 > Fixed Direct Access SCSI-5 device
da0: 2861588MB (5860533168 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 364801C)

Now as far as I understand, one can operate it with many 512byte blocks
or one can try to use the internal 4kbyte blocks.

How would one do that with FreeBSD ?
