Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Review

Today, in your current professional working and personal environment, how much information, details and data are you holding, consuming and storing? Data today is a much much bigger technology tool than before and it would only get much bigger, from your own personal usage of data and documents to big data on a world basis. How do you store and keep your own personal or professional data and documents? Portable hard disk drives are an excellent option today, lightweight, big in storage space, easy to use and carry around, such as the Seagate Backup Plus Slim portable drive. Most recently, I had the Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB for review, let me share with you more information on it, my thoughts and views.

This article is produced in a collaboration post with Seagate through PR Galleria and I was seeded with the Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB with Seagate Rescue Service Card. Opinions and views are my own.

Personally, I emphasis a lot on backing up your personal data and documents, not just on your computer/laptop, also on other external portable devices such as a portable hard drive. I lost my data and documents on my laptop previously when my laptop hard disk crashed and I didn’t have a back up at all. Therefore, after learning some tough lessons, I have more than one backup of my data and documents on a few portable hard drives.

Why choose Seagate?

Just two words, trust and reliability. I don’t write these two words just because I have been seeded with the Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB, I am a current Seagate Backup Plus family of portable drives user.

Let me share with you my Seagate Backup Plus story below!

With the addition of the latest Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB, this would be my fourth Seagate portable drive. While my fourth Seagate portable hard drive (Backup Plus Slim 2TB) is seeded, my first three Seagate portable hard drives are my own personal purchases and they are all still in use!

2013 – Backup Plus Portable Drive USM 1000GB

2015 – Backup Plus Slim Portable Drive 2TB

2017 – Backup Plus Portable Drive 4TB

2019 – Backup Plus Slim 2TB

Seagate Backup Plus family of portable drive is trusted and reliable, coming from a personal user experience for my storage of my own big data, business, work, a pretty huge amount of photographs that I shot over the years (digital photographs starting from 2005) and personal documents. I have been using them since 2013 and I now have a total of four Backup Plus family of portable drives.

The Seagate Rescue Service (SRS) is an excellent service provision by Seagate. While my Seagate portable drives have been working great, trusted and reliable, you never know when things go wrong and you need data recovery rescue service (even though I have more than one backup)

In the near future, I am looking at building my own multi-bay Network-attached storage (NAS) for my photography business, the Seagate IronWolf NAS has caught my interest. However, I would still need to weigh the overall costs and should I go for two bays or four bays NAS setup. Hopefully, I would be to share more in the future.

In my earlier paragraph, I mentioned that this is a collaboration post with Seagate through PR Galleria and I was seeded with the Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB with Seagate Rescue Service Card. Opinions and views are my own.

I would like to thank Seagate and PR Galleria for this collaboration opportunity arrangement.
