Seagate in January announced an updated lineup of its popular Backup Plus hard drives, debuting the Backup Plus Slim and the Backup Plus Portable, both of which are now available for purchase and are ideal for those who need lots of storage space at an affordable price.
The Backup Plus Slim and the Backup Plus Portable are your average, run of the mill hard drives. The Backup Plus Slim is the thinner of the two models as it has less storage space, measuring in at 4.5 inches by 3 inches with a thickness of just about half an inch.
The Backup Plus Portable is about the same size but it’s close to an inch thick and about twice as heavy (eight ounces vs. four). Neither one of these drives takes up much space, so they’re ideal for backup or other purposes and can be tucked away in a drawer afterwards.
