Seagate Backup Plus Fast Portable Drive

Launched on the 8th April 2014 as well, the USB 3.0 Seagate Backup Plus Fast Portable Drive [1] is a 4TB harddrive that delivers fast data transfer speeds of up to 220MB/s.

The Seagate Backup Plus Fast Portable Drive measures (length x width x depth) 116.90mm x 82.50mm x 22.35mm, weighs 307g and is currently retailing for S$449 in black (only one color).

Similar to Seagate Backup Plus Slim Portable Drive [2], the harddrive comes pre-formatted in NTFS and inside it contains the application, Seagate Dashboard [3] for both PC and Mac. Seagate Dashboard allows you to backup your digital files on your computer and mobile devices (iOS and Android). It also lets you automatically back up your photos from Facebook and Flickr.

Using Blackmagic Disk Speed Test [4], I managed to get a much better speed of 250MB/s for write and 240MB/s for read than the stated speed of 220MB/s.
