Top features:

- High speed data transfer means less time waiting for files to copy

High speed data transfer


The Seagate Backup Plus External Hard Drive connects to your PC or Mac via USB 3.0, which means you can take advantage of transfer speeds up to ten times faster than USB 2.0.

Don't worry if you have USB 2.0 connections, as the Backup Plus is compatible with those as well. You can also switch seamlessly between PC and Mac without formatting thanks to the NTFS driver included.

Connect external devices


By using the Backup Plus you actually gain an extra USB 3.0 slot as it has two front-facing ports, allowing you to connect extra devices. You can even charge a device if your computer is turned off.

Backup from your phone


With the Seagate Mobile App you are able to back up all of your important pictures and videos to the BackupPlus or the cloud.

Schedule automatic backups at a time to suit you and don't worry about losing files or folders again.

Bargain I paid £150 just before xbox one x released working well and USB ports both work as a hub for any other hard drives.

I was just looking @ the £99.99 4tb which is plastered everywhere and saw this for £5 less

Bargain
Another thing to note is they seem to be in store also!

If you mean the WD at Currys then that one is a 2.5" portable drive.
Although this one will be quicker.

Depends what you need it for I guess.

Cracking deal. Does anyone know what HDD is inside? Would like to get this to use the HDD internally and keep the caddy.

Would much rather have the wd over a failgate, worth a fiver more any day!

Will this work for ps4?

​No. Just bought the 6TB version for the same reason and the PS4 firmware prevents any 'hubs' (HDDs w/spare USB Drives) from working.

Interested to know what drive is in this and if I can rip it out

Will this work with Xbox one?

Yep, 100%. Xbox One doesn’t have the same firmware issue that PS4 does. And you can use the USB ports to charge your controllers

. Thanks, I will go for the 6TB version on Amazon for GBP 119.. seems a better deal?

Also interested to know if this can be dismantled and re-used.

Do they have a demonstrably higher failure rate than others at this capacity? I know 3TB drives were problematic a while ago, but I've had a 2TB Seagate for a couple of years without issue.

I had so many fail in the past and lost data . I would never buy another seagate drive again . You get what you pay for , thats why they are cheap

Why? I have three Seagate drives, one's got to be 10 years old now, and I've had no issues with any of them. I really don't know why people keep saying they're bad, they're not. At least, not in my experience.

So I can reuse it in a desktop? Or have you quoted the wrong post
