Seagate's Backup Plus Fast reviewed: an excellent back-up drive

There’s something reassuringly retro and rugged about the unusual thickness of Seagate’s new backup drive. At nearly two centimeters thick, it stands out from the crowd of similar drives, but with good reason - it fits two slim drives into its plain black chassis, and links them together in RAID O. This makes the 4TB Plus Fast the highest capacity drive of its type we’ve seen.

Backed up by USB 3, it also lives up to that Fast moniker, beating pretty much all the competition, and only being surpassed by drives sporting Intel’s powered Thunderbolt bus. 

In use, the Fast Plus makes an excellent back-up drive, and it comes loaded with software to get you data backing up right away. It also features a second, two-port cable for when you need more power to  get the drive spinning up. It runs quitely, as well, and for the money offers great capacity and speed.

Verdict
This Seagate backup drive runs quietly, and for the money offers great capacity and speed.
