Seagate Backup Plus 1TB USB 3.0 Storage for Mac & PC- Portable Model STBW1000901

The Backup Plus portable drive for Mac from Seagate is the simple way to protect and share your entire digital life—without getting in the way of the rest of your life.

  • Mac OS and Time-Machine® ready out of the box
  • Automatically save photos from your social networks
  • Share photos and video to social networks with a click
  • Easily increase transfer speeds by upgrading to Thunderbolt™ technology

 

Seagate Backup Plus, easy backup for your digital life on your computer and the cloud.

Seagate

The Seagate® Backup Plus for Mac® portable drive simplifies backup for consumers who want to protect their entire digital life locally or on social networks. The drive is formatted for Mac out of the box, making it compatible with Time Machine® software to provide the simplest and most efficient way to back up locally. 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 from 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 downloadable HFS+ driver for PC, and use the drive interchangeably between Mac computers and PCs without reformatting. Take advantage of the Seagate Backup Plus design and upgrade from the included USB 3.0 interface to Thunderbolt™ technology or FireWire® 800 with the additional adapter.

4 out of 5 eggsMisinformed

Pros: High speed usb3 device.
It's a Seagate!
The drive is protected within the case with a metal caddy and rubber mounts to reduce shock if dropped.

Cons: Plastic case.
USB drive adapter is separate from the drive. This would allow you to use the drive internally, since it would be easy to attach the sata connectors to the drive in the case. On the negative side, the sata connectors would probably suffer the brunt of being dropped.

Other Thoughts: USB 3.0 is not properly supported by everyone and is not Seagate's fault. I was misinformed and angry at the time I wrote the critical review. I would like to caution you to better know your requirements and what will work best for you.

1 out of 5 eggsNot plug and play for Windows

Pros: Contains standard Seagate 1TB Sata 2.5" drive.

Cons: Non-standard USB drive interface.
Non-standard USB 'B' plug end (Cord and device interface).
Might work for a MAC, but I don't have one. Drivers and reboot required for Windows.
Forget making it work for Linux, DVR and other such devices.
Cheap plastic case.

Other Thoughts: Why reinvent the wheel and make your product not suitable for all possible applications?

5 out of 5 eggsDelivery speed

Pros: I have Seagate Backup 2.0 and it works great so I expect 3.0 will also be great. What I want to comment on is the extraordinary speed at which this arrived. I placed the order yesterday morning. It arrived this afternoon. You can't beat that.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome drive

Pros: small foottprint and a good amount of space for the size
this thing really flies on an USB 3.0 port on a mac book air

i need to the test the speed on my tabletop windows PC to see the speed on USB 3.0

Cons: on my regular Windows notebook speed is not impressive since it's USB2.0 but it works ..
i started a transfer of 200 gigs it starts fast and then crumbles to 15 meg writing speed which is kind of normal for USB2.0 .. eventually i will have another windows notebook with native USB 3.0

Other Thoughts: if you have a usb 3.0 you will see a big advantage of speed
in both reading and writing ..

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: My wife, a non-techie person plugged the device into her MacBook. It worked right out of the box and she was able to back up her system. No problems and no questions for me, a Windows user. That rates 5 eggs as far as I am concerned.

Cons: NONE!!!!!
