Seagate Backup Plus Hub: The Answer to Your Digital Mess
If you’re a typical data-loving, digital-living computer user — you know how hard it can be to juggle all your digital goodness.
Your data’s all over the place, on lots of devices and in the cloud — and the number of USB-connected devices in your house is only increasing. And the rise of devices means more data and a higher demand for USB connectivity. Yet today’s computers seem to be decreasing in capacity and USB ports. No wonder USB hubs are one of the most common items bought with external hard drives.
Good news: Announcing your most functional hard drive ever
Today, Seagate introduced the Seagate Backup Plus Hub, with up to 8TB capacity. It’s much more than a hard drive. It’s a backup storage station that organizes your digital life and desktop. Based on Seagate’s award-winning Backup Plus Desktop, which was named “Editor’s Choice” by PC Magazine, and called “the fastest USB 3.0 external hard drive” by CNET.
Now this sleek, high capacity desktop solution includes two integrated USB 3.0 ports for connecting and charging your devices. So go ahead and buy that new computer and load up on devices. Seagate’s got you covered.
Onboard, intelligent 2-port USB hub
Its intelligent 2-port USB hub makes Backup Plus Hub a charging station. Its integrated USB slots allow you to charge two USB-connected devices (phones, tablets, cameras, Fitbit, etc.) at any time – even if your computer is not powered on.
And, now you can easily connect devices directly to the Backup Plus Hub, for data transfers. Access two USB-connected devices just like if they were plugged directly into your computer! Plug your Android and iOS devices directly, so you can backup photos and videos, and free up your phone memory any time.
The many joys of extra ports
So let’s recap — besides storing massive amounts of valuable data, now you can:
- Offload and upload content from your mobile devices or flash drives straight to your Backup Plus Hub
- Charge your mobile devices — even when your Backup Plus Hub is not connected to a computer (the intelligent USB ports detect connected device for optimal charging current)
- Use the additional ports for your mouse or keyboard, or any USB device, and reduce desktop and power outlet clutter!
Of course, Backup Plus Hub still brings all the features you expect from Backup Plus, like the plug-and-play high-speed USB 3.0-connection, our Seagate Dashboard easy to use backup software, and Social Media backup for Facebook & Flickr. You can learn all about these on our product detail pages. Then ask your favorite retailer when you can get yours. 😉
