Holiday Gift idea 1: Backup your precious moments!

Holiday Gift idea 1: Backup your precious moments for a lifetime of happiness

Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Touch.

Seagate Backup Plus portable external drives

With Google Photos ending free unlimited storage in a few more months, you'll definitely need to take a stronger look at your storage and backup options. Sure, cloud storage isn't expensive, but there's nothing like personal storage free from security and privacy concerns that you can readily access even when the internet goes down. Furthermore, you're not held ransom to terms and conditions that cloud storage providers can change anytime.

Even if you do want to continue cloud storage options, it's always good practice to have a multi-layered backup plan and not place all your eggs in the same basket. This calls for some good old external hard drive options and some solutions like those from Seagate offer more variety and peace of mind.
 

Need a sophisticated and secure portable drive option?

The Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Touch is the ideal model to fit both your lifestyle and data security needs thanks to its password protection and hardware encryption options built-in. Don't forget, you get style too as the hard drive has a woven fabric texture finished in either black or white to suit your needs. The Backup Plus Ultra Touch is the only model to offer USB-C and USB 3.0 (Type-A) connectivity compatibility out of the box thanks to the provisioned cable and adapter.

You can get the 1TB drive now for S$89 (U.P. S$109) and the 2TB for S$109 (U.P. S$139).

If you're buying it on Shopee, HardwareZone readers can apply this special limited-quantity promo code SEAXMAS10 upon checkout to knock off $10. If it's fully utilised, don't forget that you can still claim the shop voucher to knock off S$5.

If you're buying it on Lazada, you can claim a $10 voucher to save on your storage drive purchase. Voucher is valid till 25th December.


Want the thinnest drive possible?

Seagate Backup Plus Slim.

At just over 11mm thin and 160 grams in weight, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim are your best options and they come in a variety of colours to meet your fancy - red, silver, black, light blue, gold and grey. Slimmer drives are easier on your pocket as well as less stress on your bag/carrier of choice. As with all other drives in the Backup Plus series, you get a one-click backup option from the provided software utility, schedule automatic backups and mirror content seamlessly.

Supporting USB 3.0 transfer speeds, you can get the 1TB model at S$79 (U.P. S$99) and the 2TB model at S$99 (U.P. S$129).

If you're buying it on Shopee, HardwareZone readers can apply this special limited-quantity promo code SEAXMAS10 upon checkout to knock off $10. If it's fully utilised, don't forget that you can still claim the shop voucher to knock off S$5.

Just need extra large storage to backup to? The Seagate Backup Plus Portable foregoes the slim design but packs big capacity. 4TB option is available now for S$159 (U.P. S$179) and the 5TB at S$199 (U.P. S$219).
