The Seagate Backup Plus Hub drive optimises external storage with simple local or cloud file backup for your computers and mobile devices and an intelligent USB hub to charge and manage your USB-connected devices.

High-speed USB 3.0 and 2.0 connectivity offers plug-and-play functionality on your PC. Plus, install the provided NTFS driver for Mac and you can use your Backup Plus drive interchangeably between Windows and Mac computers without reformatting.

The two front-facing intelligent USB 3.0 ports amplify the functionality of your drive by allowing you to charge and connect two external devices, like your phone, tablet or camera - even if your computer is in off/standby mode.

Via the downloadable Seagate Dashboard software, you are provided with tools for local, mobile, cloud and social media backup. Run a one-click backup or schedule an automatic backup plan to protect your files in your Backup Plus Hub drive at your convenience. Install the free Seagate Mobile Backup app on an iOS or Android mobile device and you’ll be able to back up all of the pictures and videos from your device to your Seagate drive or to the cloud.

Bought the 8 TB version of this for £134.99 at Christmas. It looks good on my desk and the USB ports are useful.

What's better? Desktop or portable for reliability?

I'd say Desktop as it is not subjected to movement and possible knocks and drops like a portable drive is. The drive speed may also be quicker (7200rpm vs 5400rpm).

Whether the HDs develop a fault however is still a lottery. I've had a NAS drive fail but never had a portable drive fail for example.

Imho I think they're as reliable as each other. You're gonna get failures no matter what you buy. To me it's just pot luck
Personally I prefer the portables because they take up less room and can be hidden. But the desktops seem to be a bit cheaper

Tough one to answer but based on usage I would say desktop. Only because it isn't being transported and receiving the knocks and bumps that a portable would endure. But I would basically buy as a best fit for purpose. Desktop for your PC/Gamestation and portable to carry around with your laptop. After all that is what they were developed for.

I've been in the IT service industry since the Abacus and you need to remember something. There are two kinds of USER. Those who have had a disk crash and those who are about to.
Nice piece of kit especially with the addition USB ports.
