Holiday Gift idea 2: Need extra storage or something to backup to?

Holiday Gift idea 2: Need extra storage or something to backup to?

Seagate Backup Plus portable external drives

Cloud storage may be getting cheaper and more convenient but concerns about security and privacy still abound. Sometimes, there’s no substitute for old-fashion ways and that means taking matters into your own hands.

To do this means having your own external hard drive and that’s where Seagate’s family of Backup Plus drives come in. The Seagate Backup Plus family of portable external hard drives come in a variety of designs, colours, and capacities.

If you got a huge stash for photos, you might want to go with the Backup Plus Portable which goes up to 5TB. The 4TB model is S$159 while the 5TB model is S$199.

If your priority is portability, the Backup Plus Slim goes up to 2TB and it’s the one to go for. It's also available in a variety of colours. The 1TB model is S$79 while the 2TB model is S$109.

For the fashion-conscious, the Backup Plus Ultra Touch features a funky woven fabric chassis and also goes up to 2TB. It comes in black and white. The 1TB model is S$89 while the 2TB model is S$119.

You can get all models of the Seagate Backup Plus series at your usual electronics stores, or online at the following stores:- Seagate store on Lazada, Seagate's official store on Shopee, and on Hachi.tech. Amazon is also an option, but it's not yet shipping from Singapore itself.

Riddle Me This: What is the Next Gift Suggestion? (Contest Hint)

It's a compact and highly portable printer that produces beautiful glossy photos. It connects via Bluetooth to your smartphone and it even has an app that lets you add fun effects to your photos. What's new in the latest model is that it now outputs regular sized 4 x 6-inch photos prints using dye-sublimation print technology which should produce better prints. Can you guess the brand and model? The brand starts with the letter 'H' and it's one of the biggest names in computing and printing.
