Seagate Backup Plus Portable Drive Review

Tech2
31 March 2013
  • Summary: Seagate has two capacities for the Indian market – 500GB priced at Rs 5,600 and 1TB priced at Rs 7,700. It’s expensive by a few hundred rupees than portable USB 3.0 hard drive by other brands, but the premium is quite justified by the useful backup software and the option to swap to FireWire 800 and Thunderbolt interfaces.

  • Cons: The Seagate Backup Plus caps at just 1TB, and its price could be lower.

Seagate Backup Plus 1TB (STBU1000300) USB 3.0 Portable Storage Drive Review

Hardware BBQ
17 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Well, as I’ve said in the transfer tests, for a drive that’s meant to be a media backup, it should be quickest of them all when it comes to uncompressed data copy. But the difference between this and another drive- keeping 98.39 GB Assorted movie folder test in mind- it takes 2 minutes more. Sequential read and write are more or less equal and it is quickest compared to the USB 3.0 drives I’ve evaluated in the past, including WD My Passport 2TB which is priced for Rs.

  • Conclusion: Just keep in mind that whichever drive you’re using to back up your files, there’s always a chance that your backup drive itself will fail, as well. Those who really need to make sure their data is protected should take advantage of one of the many free cloud-based storage solutions to back up their most important files, and keep a local copy of everything on a dual-drive redundant RAID solution that backs up everything twice onto two separate drives.
  • Pros: Fast performance, Flexible interface, including Thunderbolt option, Easy-to-use backup software, Interoperable between Macs and PCs, Available in four colors
  • Cons: Social-backup software has some crucial Facebook limitations, Drive shell looks like metal, but is really plastic

A speedy little portable hard drive with backup software that can save Facebook and Flickr photos

Good Gear Guide.au
31 March 2013
  • Summary: The Seagate Backup Plus Portable Drive comes with software that can backup your Facebook and Flickr photos in addition to your computer's data. However, the implementation of that feature could be better and some other aspects of the software need to be worked on, too. It's a quick and quiet drive though, and also very light.
  • Pros: Quick performance, Easy to use, Changeable interface
  • Cons: The Dashboard software interface needs some work, Facebook and Flickr uploads failed, Flickr backups restricted to the 'large' photo size

Seagate Backup Plus Portable

MacWorld
27 March 2013
  • Conclusion: This Seagate offers both the backwards compatibility of Firewire 800 and the future-proofing of Thunderbolt, without the need to spend the extra cash until such time as you need the extra functionality. This kind of flexibility makes it the pick of the bunch unless you’ve deep pockets and crave the Elgato’s raw speed.
  • Pros: Fast; optional adaptors
  • Cons: Bulky Thunderbolt adaptor

Seagate Backup Plus Portable 500GB review

expertreviews.co.uk
15 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Backup Plus is the latest version of Seagate’s venerable GoFlex series of external hard disks. It has the same swappable connector which lets you replace the USB3 interface with a FireWire, eSATA or Thunderbolt one, but the real change is in the bundled software suite. This model comes with a USB3 connection, as well as 500GB of storage.

Seagate Backup Plus 1TB

  • Conclusion: Dyski z rodziny Seagate Backup Plus to bardzo przydatne, szybkie i dobrze wykonane urządzenia. Również ich oprogramowanie jest bardzo użyteczne i pozwala praktycznie zapomnieć o konieczności samodzielnego wykonywania kopii bezpieczeństwa zdjęć i filmów. Model STBU1000201, który mieliśmy okazję testować nie zawiódł naszych oczekiwań i zdecydowanie warty jest swojej ceny (rzeczywistej – sugerowana wydaje się jednak nieco zbyt wysoka).
  • Pros: bardzo dobra wydajność w trybie USB 3.0,, kompaktowe wymiary,, znakomite oprogramowanie Seagate Dashboard umożliwiające automatyczne i okresowe wykonywanie kopii bezpieczeństwa wybranych danych,, współpraca z serwisami społecznościowymi,, duża pojemność,, bezproblemowa współpraca z komputerami PC i Apple,, atrakcyjna cena.
  • Cons: nienajlepsza jakość plastiku, z którego wykonana została obudowa dysku,, długi czas wykonywania pierwszej kopii automatycznie chronionych danych,, brak języka polskiego w oprogramowaniu Seagate Dashboard,, bardzo niewielka liczba obsługiwanych serwisów społecznościowych.

Seagate Backup Plus 500GB

Tweak.dk
13 April 2013
  • Summary: Er Seagates Backup Plus 500GB så noget ved? Ja, det er den. Det er en meget velfungerende og lækker ekstern harddisk, der fint lever op til såvel mine som sine egne forventninger. Med skrive og læsehastigheder på 117 MB/s er overførsel af selv store filer, en smal sag.
  • Pros: • Mulighed for flere interfaces, • Hastighed, • Design
  • Cons: • Lavet i plastic, • Ingen stødabsorbering
