Lacks password protection. Ngo's biggest concern about the Backup Plus Slim is that, unlike competitors, it doesn't offer a way to password-protect the contents. This means that if you lose the drive, anyone who finds it can access your files.

    Lots of capacity for the price, Very fast transfer speeds, Extremely compact, Low failure rate

    No security features, Setup can be tricky

No complaints with this drive. It performs nicely, has good file transfer with small file size and compressed file transfers. Its not really slow even with larger movie folder transfers either. The casing could be bit stronger.

Fast and affordable, the Seagate Backup Plus/Slim is one of the best deals on the market if you want want lots of storage space on the go.

    The fast and affordable Seagate Backup Plus/Slim has the highest capacity of any portable drive. The drive includes helpful backup software and a free two-year 200GB subscription to Microsoft OneDrive online storage.

  • -

    The two-year warranty is short and there's no security option to protect the contents of the drive against unauthorized access.

I just wanted a harddrive for backups. However, during installation of the privacy policy wants me to allow the company to monitor my browsing and internet purchases. Snooping by businesses has gotton out of control.

I bought this hard drive for my Xbox One (original) back in 2014. I have been using it everyday since I got it for hours at a time. It is very simple to use (plug, format and play). Xbox had no issues finding the drive and I have never had any issues with the Xbox not recognizing the drive.

Having a back-up for your photos, files and music on an external HD with 2TB is super awesome. This small HD has been great and one could remove those big HD and keep the small drives. Takes less space on th desk now!

When I was buying my MacBook Pro, I was wanting an external hard drive to backup my 1TB hard drive. I was looking at this model or a Western Digital, went with the Seagate based on ABT's recommendation. Has worked great with Time Machine.

    Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet

Used as extra storage for Xbox One. Plugged in and within minutes was all set to go. It has been working great since and now I don't have to delete and re-install games when I want to play them.

Smaller footprint than I had expected. Works as described and doesn't heat up at all. I currently have it velcro'ed to the back of my Apple Monitor and use it as a Time Machine back-up drive. Couldn't be happier.

I bought one for my wife and one for myself. It's compact, fast, and super easy. We have Macs and you just plug it in with the usb cable that comes with it, click Time Machine and you've got a second copy of your computer. No external power source is required which is a big plus.

Would love an SSD but this has great capacity within a small frame. Durable too, dropped twice when it fell from my coat pocket onto cement, not even a hiccup. Runs quite, decent speed and doesn't require a separate power cord. Great solution until SSD comes down in price.
