According to the description on NCIX, it can only support a maximum on 1TB.

You might want to check the manufacturers website just to be sure though.

3TB unlikely.
2TB most likely.
1TB definitely.

Many advertisements simply stated "up to xxTB" based on the highest capacity hard drive available, they really should have stated capacities not yet released, but then maybe something would change so they can't do that.

Sites are rarely updated.

The information I found seems to suggest the 2TB limit is a 32-bit issue and not a hardware one.

http://windowstipoftheday.blogspot.com/2011/04/windows-7-3tb-hard-drives-and-larger.html

However, after reading this it does appear to be not only software but the drive controller must be also up to date. USB drives would have drive controllers built inside the case.

Long story short, depending on your setup it might go like this:
1) 3TB on Windows 32-bit internally (may require partitioning)
2) 3TB on Windows 64-bit internally (very likely)
3) 3TB on USB (probably a newer USB case with supported drive controller)
