You can get the Backup Plus Slim in Gold and Platinum. This sleek looking device with a chromish can easily be put into the pockets of your pants and is almost noticeable in your average backpack. It’s only 9.6mm thin, which is fairly impressive, that could be even thinner than your smartphone (with its cover).
We particular liked the chrome feel of the Backup Plus Ultra Slim. This futuristic looking device is certainly an upgrade from the Backup Plus Slim, which had a rather plan design.
The Backup Plus Ultra Slim also includes the downloadable Seagate Dashboard backup software. This software is split into 3 main functions: PC Backup, Mobile Backup, and Social.
PC Backup lets you save local data and backup consistently on your own PC whenever data changes have been made to your local drive.
Social feature gives you an easy method of sharing your media files on social-networking sites and at the same time, save the media that has been shared on these sites
Last but not least, you can also back up that is on your mobile device using the Mobile Backup function. All you have to do is download the Seagate Mobile Backup app from either the Apple or Google Play Store.
This drive is well-oiled and its performance is pretty stellar. It has a fairly quick read and write speed, however, it is still a HDD and not SSD drive, so don’t expect that insane solid state speed. Considering it’s sleek form and miniature size, we can’t complain much about such a performance.
The Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Slim is the slimmest portable drive in the market with an impressive size. It fits most of our needs, being highly portable and quick as well. With the convenient and easy to use Seagate Backup software, it’s most definitely a buy you won’t regret.
