Are you frustrated by the lack of storage space on the typical external USB hard drive? Do you long for an external drive that’s super-fast, yet plugs into a standard USB 3.0 port?
Well look no further, because Seagate has both bases well-covered with their new Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive. (#ad)
Most consumer-grade USB hard drives currently max out at around 2TB, but this Seagate Backup Plus doubles that to a massive 4TB.
Of course to take full advantage of all that storage space, the drive needs to transfer data at the fastest speeds possible – and this awesome drive is lightning fast!
If you use both a PC and a Mac, you can use this drive with both of them thanks to the included Mac NTFS driver. Simply install the driver on your Mac, then easily swap the drive back and forth between your computers at will – without reformatting.
The easy-to-use, but powerful Seagate Dashboard backup software that comes with this drive offers several ways to back up your data, either automatically or on a schedule of your choosing.
The only downside that I found to the Backup Plus is its relatively thick case compared to other portable USB external hard drives. But given that it offers twice the storage, I think that’s a very reasonable trade-off.
Bottom line: If you need an external USB hard drive that offers both tons of storage space and lightning-fast data transfer speeds, the Seagate Backup Plus Fast certainly lives up to its name.
