Is this easy to take it out and use it as bare drive?

Yes, I've done it on a few of the GoFlex drives- the "interface" on the bottom is straight SATA/power, so if you don't want to void the warranty you could keep it in the case and just lay it down in your system... unless you want to put it in some sort of NAS.
The dock is basically a Seagate Dockstar (older pogoplug with 128mb ram) with a SATA interface on top and 1 USB port instead of 3. Archlinux runs well on it.
/edit/ also if this is your first 3tb drive, your mobo/os might need some special software to recognize it. Normal OS's recognize drives up to 2.2TB with no problem, but 3TB breaks the normal addressing threshold. Not saying it's NOT possible, but check yourself before you wreck yourself.
Why I oughta...

OTOH the SATA sockets on Seasonics, including those sold by Antec, are fit fine.
