The Backup Plus Fast is an excellent choice for anyone, especially those for those needing lots of storage space or the ability to edit videos on the go.

  • +

    The Seagate Backup Plus Fast is indeed extremely fast, and includes helpful backup software. The drive also provides top capacity, and is bus-powered.

  • -

    Users can't change the internal drives; the RAID 0 setup might result in a higher risk of data loss.

Considering you’ve got to carry the power supply around with you, I wouldn’t consider it very portable, but then again I don’t think it’s supposed to be, if you want portable then you should look at the BlackArmor PS 110.

  • +

    Nicely made, Good software included, Dual interface, eSATA is fast, Easy to use

    No eSATA cable included, Expensive

has put out a large number of external hard drives over the last few years, and I'll admit that it can be hard to distinguish one from the other given all of the names, configurations, and so on.

    » Would like to see a GoFlex Slim style version - even smaller and even faster

6.0/10 Review Rating: 6 out of 10 Score would be much higher without the Dashboard.

Although the speed of external USB hard drives are a bit slow due to the limitations of USB, having 750 gigs of backup space is simply awesome. Transporting an external device such as this one that requires a power supply and cables can be a bit clumsy, but it's nice to know that any Windows 2000/XP...

You won't be disappointed with this drive. I now have 2, they are so good! Note that this is actually 2 x 2 TB drives configured as RAID 0, which is how it gets to be so fast.

  • +

    3X speed of regular USB 3.0 drive on reads & writes. 3.6 TB (after formatting) is wonderful amount of storage!

  • -

    none (unless you count the cost, but it is not pricey for the features & benefits that it provides)

I did lots of research on this, and this was the drive to get! It's one of the fastest external drives around, near SSD speeds, portable, 1 cable, and a good 3 yr warranty! It's also silent!

  • +

    Fast, large, cheap, 3 yr warranty, portable!

I wasted many hours trying to format another external hard drive for my MAC - and in the end never did succeed! This one worked right out of the box! I plugged it in, clicked on Apple's Time Machine, and off it went to the races.

Good value. Initially I installed the optional "Seagate Dashboard". Since this 2TB drive is for Apple's Time Machine, this was a mistake. Dashboard yields nothing of value. Worse, it clobbered the Desktop icons for Time Machine.
