Seagate BackUp Plus Desktop 3TB Review

The Seagate Backup Plus Desktop Drive for Mac (3TB) is a desktop drive that provides enough space to back up all of the current Mac desktops and MacBook laptops. It can also be used as a warehouse for all your digital needs, including videos, photos and music.

 

The Seagate BackUp Plus Desktop 3TB holds enough space for making a backup for your system. With its 3TB memory, it provides you with plenty space to store all your data. Although it does not provide the maximum speed of transfer provided by other disk drives out there, it’s a great product for the price bracket it is in. Even if it’s not at the top of the curve, the speed of this model is good enough to transfer files from system to disk or from disk to system in groups within a very short period of time.

 

This Mac version has a plastic covering at the back with matt stripes which are silver in color. The USM provided in this pack gives you the facility of locking the drive when the system is not in use. The Seagate BackUp Plus Desktop 3TB is provided with a row of LED lights to inform you of the drive's status. These lights indicate how much space is left. But this feature only works if you have installed the software called Seagate Dashboard, which is provided by Seagate to use with their products. Apart from the option of 3TB, drives with the capacity of 2TB are also available in the market for those who do not want or need that much disk space. The total length, width and breadth of the drive are 7’’, 1.75’’ and 4.75’’. An additional feature that one gets with this drive is that they can easily upload pictures and videos to social media sites. The software installed in this drive also helps you to download pictures from your social media profiles automatically. The uploading of data on social media sites in turn helps you to protect your data from getting damaged.

 

Seagate BackUp Plus Desktop 3TB provides a fair speed for transferring data to and from your system. It is a very useful Mac drive and allows users to store their personal or professional data without any hassle. Users can also use the drive with their Mac laptops, but due to its bulky size, carrying the disk drive around will definitely be a laborious task. This product has garnered good response from the audience. With its flexible design, good performance, and supportive software, the new Seagate Backup Plus makes for an excellent external hard drive for business as well as home purposes. All in all, it provides great value for money for a mid-range device in this category and has very few crucial drawbacks.

  • The Good :
    Large capacity; USM connector; Speedy USB 3.0 interface
  • The Bad :
    Does not work on Win7 backup utility; Costly Thunderbolt adapter
Our score:
4.5 / 5
