Happy to hear more praise for Seagate’s Backup Plus Hub! In a review this week by TweakTown, Tyler Bernath gave the drive a 91% out of 100% TweakTown rating, and bestowed it with the “Must Have: Best Features Award.”
Transfer files from your device, charge at the same time
Backup Plus Hub is our new sleek, high-capacity desktop drive (up to 8TB) with two integrated USB 3.0 ports for connecting and charging your devices. Its onboard, intelligent 2-port USB hub lets you to charge two USB devices (phones, tablets, cameras, Fitbit, etc.) any time, and connect devices directly to the Backup Plus Hub for data transfers — just as if they were plugged directly into your computer.
Tyler liked the drive’s unique two front-side USB 3.0 ports, “making access paramount with this solution as these ports can both transfer your files from your device while charging at the same time.” He said the quality of the product’s construction “really is quite good” and “durable,” and said it offers “plenty of performance” for your backups.
Easily back up your PC, mobile devices, and social networks
He also lauded Seagate’s Dashboard software, which lets you easily back up the content on your PC with automatic scheduled or continuous options, and also directly backup your mobile devices, and save user-generated photos and videos directly from your social networks automatically — “a great alternative to the built-in Windows backup.”
On a personal note, Tyler said the Backup Plus Hub is a “welcomed addition as a second backup location next to my NAS.”
