Seagate Technology announced the second generation of its Backup Plus Slim external storage lineup yesterday, in Las Vegas. These external drives are extremely thin, come bundled with the Seagate Dashboard backup software and use the fast USB 3.0 interface for both data and power. 

According to Seagate's vice president of global marketing Scott Horn, "Seagate Backup Plus has been designed to make the chore of backing up as simple as possible. This compact, attractive external storage is hassle free and includes our Dashboard backup software for easy backup of social media albums, PC content and now even your mobile devices."

While the Seagate Dashboard software is not new, the Seagate Backup Plus lineup now comes with a mobile backup application for both iOS and Android which allows easy data transfer to the drive or a cloud service such as Google Drive or Dropbox. When connected to a home network, a user can choose to send content from mobile devices via WiFi.

The Seagate Backup Plus Slim range offers three capacities - 500 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB, all less than 0.48 inches thin. The colors available are black, silver, red and blue. Pricing starts at $99.99 for the 500 GB model and reaches $179.99 for the 2 TB one. For more information, please check the press release below.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
