This is a pretty simple USB 3.0 external hard drive. It’s relatively fast, well constructed, and offers 2 terabytes of storage for only $100. There’s a 1TB version for $30 less.

I don’t like their packed in backup software, however. This is primarily due to the fact that it didn’t work at all :). But as a hard drive (its primary function) it’s a really good deal. I can recommend this one.

I’ve reviewed some portable SSD drives here that are much faster than mechanical drives like this one but also more expensive:

  1. Still using one of these for imaging computers on the go. Works great as a standalone solution for it (once you've installed clonezilla on it)

  2. Could u please help me with the difference between Backup Plus Slim vs Backup Plus Ultra Slim 1TB. Difference apart from size and weight. Which is better and why ?

  3. Não confiável, ja perdi 2 hds da Seagate, em menos de 2 meses. COmprei um igual a este mas ja deu problema!

  4. This is one garbage portable hdd by Seagate I brought this and it broke down after 4 months of use, the hard drive itself will made some annoying beeping sound when ever you upload a file to the driver, I was really scared by those sound created luckily I got a good habit to back up my files to two hdd, never buy this model sucks and not worth it.

  5. This is the worst product i ever bought. I loss my money. This product complaint every 6 month and i cannot clain warranty because buy from amazon and again this was complainted if any one planing to bought no one buy you will loss your mone because this is the 3rd time its complined And i loss my 1.5 tb data all and i didnt get any backup if any one bought please create backup on your computer that will better than this externel hdd iam using thoshiba hdd and transcend hdd still 5 year and that still working without any problum and that hdd never betraied me

  6. as u said, its mechanical. so it not recommend to be used for smartphones via otg cable when i'm traveling?

  7. I like the backup plus seagates better as it comes with a ums connector which is basically a SATA to USB3.0 converter which is so useful if you have some hard drive without enclosure lying around
