Seagate has expanded its portable HDDs lineup with the Backup Plus Fast and Backup Plus Slim. Fast is touted as the world’s first 4TB portable HDD. Slim offers up to 2TB of storage space, with an updated Dashboard that backs up your shared social media content, especially photos and videos.
Besides offering ample storage capacity, the Backup Plus Fast is housed in a metal top-case that is resistant to scratches. It has a USB 3.0 interface for speedy file transfers. The other addition, the Backup Plus Slim offers the same speedy storage solution, albeit with a lower capacity of 2TB. It is positioned as a social-media centric device that allows users to back up their shared social media content, especially on Facebook and Flickr.
As a matter of fact, the Seagate Dashboard software that performs the archival function, has been updated for both devices. Fast is available at a SRP of US$299.99, and Slim is offered in three different capacities; 500GB - US$99.99, 1TB - US$119.99, and 2TB - US$179.99.
