  • More Information
  • You've just landed in Bangkok and attempt to hail a taxi outside the chaotic arrivals area. When a cab finally arrives, you go to pick up your carry-on. But it's nowhere in sight. You've been robbed. Panic paralyzes you. Your laptop was inside that bag. But it's not the laptop you're worried about. Precious photos of your kids' school plays, hockey games, and birthday parties were in that computer. So was that novel you've been working on and your entire classic rock collection.

    Your vacation is ruined. Or is it? You suddenly remember that you backed up your files just last week with the Seagate Backup Plus external portable hard drive. In fact, not only did you back up your personal files, you also took the hard drive to the office and backed up your important work documents too. A massive weight lifts off your shoulders. With the Seagate Backup Plus, you can rest easy knowing your most important files are safe, even when disaster strikes.

    Why you need this:

    • Loads of storage room: The massive 4TB capacity gives you plenty of space to store all your movies, music, and photos. Simply plug into your PC or Mac with the included cable. No power supply necessary thanks to the USB-powered design.

    • Quick access to your files: 5400 rotations per minute means you'll be able to access your files in a flash.
    • Ultra light: Sporting a lightweight, tough metal construction, this portable hard drive was built to go everywhere with you. Take your movies and tunes along for the flight or show family your recent travel photos at Grandma's house.

      I am on my SECOND drive, and the second one doesn't work. Computer struggles to recognize it, and all it does is CLICK CLICK CLICK **AND** I struggled with customer service to return the first defective one! He kept telling me "becvause it's opened, you technically need to contact the manufacturer. I'll let it slide this one time..." LOL UMMM: it's defective, dude. It's not like this is a music album that I opened, and I'm wishing to take it back because I "don't like it." IT IS DEFECTIVE lol So I have no idea how much pain I'm going to have to take trying to take THIS one back....

    • Does not fit inside PS4

      from Keswick, ON on November 30, 2018

      Works as an external drive. But it's too thick to fit inside the PS4

    • Not 4TB

      from Toronto, ON on November 29, 2018

      it's not true 4TB, some file inside but still not 4TB, this item =3.6 TB total.

    • Returned it to buy a 5 TB drive that cost me less per TB

      from Moncton, NB on September 11, 2017

      Nothing to say about the 4 TB unit but the 5 TB which is also a Seagate is great. The USB 3.0 is fast and I have no complaints so far
