Tech master Dong Ngo at CNET just checked out our Ultra Slim, a favorite among Seagate’s Backup Plus series cited by many as the best external drives. And he was happy.
“The Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Slim is compact, fast and includes helpful backup software,” Dong said, and “a handy portable drive for those needing to carry additional data or perform backups on the go.”
Dong gave the drive a CNET editors’ rating of 4 out of 5 stars, as well as 8.4 out of 10 points for overall setup, features and performance. He said the Ultra Slim is available at “great prices for an ultraportable fast drive … definitely a great buy thanks to its fast speed and extra compact design.”
In an aside, he also gave a hearty nod to our new and unique Backup Plus Hub desktop external drive (“unique” because it includes two integrated USB 3.0 ports for connecting and charging your devices) — he said it makes a great counterpart to the Ultra Slim for those who need more desktop storage.
What hard drive has the best backup software?
Dong also seemed to appreciate our unusually talented on-board Seagate Dashboard software, which he pointed out “not only lets you back up drive data, but your mobile devices and social media (Facebook, Flickr and YouTube) info as well.
I hope you’ll read Dong’s whole review right here!
