The Seagate Backup Plus Portable 5TB is available now from local authorized resellers
Launched in November last year, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable 5TB hard disk drive is now available from local authorized resellers. The new drive has a recommended SRP of S$339, and this translates to the consumer paying about S$67.80 per TB. In comparison, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable 4TB, which used to be the largest capacity portable HDD on our local market, costs S$219, and that's about S$54.75 per TB.
Therefore, you are paying approximately 23% more for the new drive; however, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable 5TB does boast of premium features like being the first portable drive to have the 2.5-inch 5TB BarraCuda internal drive. Like its 4TB predecessor, the new portable HDD retains its svelte profile with a thickness of 20.5mm. The drive is supported on both PCs and Macs, and it’s bundled with Seagate Dashboard utility for your backup requirements.
