Seagate Slim, ultra-thin metal design, portable backup for PC and Mac computers.
The Seagate Slim portable drive is the thinnest external hard drive for consumers who want to back up their digital lives and take it on-the-go. At about the thickness of a pencil, the ultra-thin metal design allows you to slide the drive in your pocket, purse or backpack and carry it with you. Via the Seagate Dashboard, use the Protect function to set up a one-click plan or customize your scheduled local backup. Keep multiple copies of your files in case disaster strikes.
With the Save feature, user-generated content can be backed up from your favorite social networks. Many people now use their smartphones to capture priceless moments. While these devices are handy and readily available, storage is not their strong suit. Capture a memory, post it on a social networking site and let the Seagate Dashboard automatically back up any content posted. Even if the file gets accidentally deleted from the device, another copy can be waiting.
The Share feature allows multiple files to be uploaded to social networks at once you’re your computer. The days of uploading individual files without creating a new album are gone! Simply select files to upload, choose where to post them and even add comments. Managing your social profile has never been easier.
Install the pre-loaded NTFS driver for Mac, and use the drive interchangeably between PC and Mac computers without reformatting the drive.
How slim is slim? This amazing drive is about as thin as a pencil. So it fits—and goes—anywhere. It is more than just the slimmest portable external hard drive available, it also contains simple, intuitive software to make backing up what’s important to you a snap.
Easy backup Choose from two easy backup options in the Seagate Dashboard—scheduled or continuous backups—and then forget it.
Protect photos, videos, and more—on the go Life is full of amazing moments you want to remember forever. The Seagate Slim portable drive goes where you go, providing easy, plug-and-play backups. So no matter where “life happens,” your memories are always protected.
Save your social life with a click Think of how many photos you’ve shared on Facebook or Flickr. With the built-in backup software and dashboard control, you can easily download them right to your drive, so even more of your life is safe and sound.
Share your favorite moments instantly You can also easily share photos and videos to Facebook, Flickr, or YouTube—simultaneously—right from your Seagate Slim drive. Smart integration with popular social media means your memories aren’t “trapped” in your drive, letting you publish them to the social network of your choice.
Works with PC or Mac Use it interchangeably on your PC or your Mac computer without reformatting.
This review is from: Seagate Slim 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive STCD500100 Black
Pros: See below.
Cons: See below.
Other Thoughts: This is a Universal Storage Module drive with both USM And USB 3 interfaces. - USM uses a SATA 3 (6.0 Gbps transfer rate) interface with a rugged 'hot pluggable' connector. - The drive housing is designed for portable (external) use and must be plugged into a computer or other device with a USM slot. - The manufacturers page is: http://www.seagate.com/external-hard-drives/portable-hard-drives/standard/seagate-slim-usm/?sku=STCD500100
