Seagate 2TB Backup Plus Slim Portable Drive Review

On the whole, it is safe to say I am very impressed with the Seagate 2TB Backup Plus Slim Portable Drive.

It is well designed, being light and thin enough to just slip in a pocket – but also being sturdy enough to satisfy any worries you may have about how durable it is. It is also complimented with a 2-year warranty from Seagate.

The Seagate Dashboard software proved very useful, allowing users to pick and choose what data they want to backup, while also providing a one-click option to back everything up.

By far and away the most interesting feature of the Dashboard, though, is the ability to back up the contents of your smartphone via the Seagate Backup mobile app. This is very convenient for users as it provides a hassle-free way of ensuring your mobile photos and videos are kept safe should the worst happen to your smartphone.

The Backup Plus also proved a very able performer, clocking sequential read/write speeds in the 130MB/s region on both desktop and laptop PCs – via USB 3.0, of course. For £75 I think those speeds are just about as good as it gets, and users are afforded a generous 2TB of space too.

You can buy the Seagate 2TB Backup Plus Slim Portable Drive from Dabs for £74.98.
