Seagate Backup Plus Portable 5 TB Review

Seagate Backup Plus Portable 5 TB Review Philippine Price


I can count the (few) times that I got broken-hearted. The irony, they were not because of romantic love. One was when one of my external drives got corrupted and I lost all the gazillion (travel) photos I have stored in it. 

I am still not over this heartache. Oftentimes, I wish I could still go back to those memories and look at the old photos and files. 

Space/storage, just like time is essential to me. I always make sure that I manage my space and data storage. I keep a lot of files - from photos, videos, documents, and worksheets - and now that I also create video content, I need more space and storage than ever. 

Seagate is a trusted brand for external drives. I got myself a Seagate Portable Drive 2TB, but countless contents, files, and memories require me to upgrade to higher storage.

I recently received the Seagate Backup Plus Portable Storage 5TB in Light Blue

Style and Design

Simple, uncomplicated, yet stylish. I love that it is portable (enclosed in solid material) that allows me to bring it to my (future) travels. It has a nice light blue-gray tone in the brass-like finish. Sleek but looks durable.

It comes with USB connector and can work with Windows® and Mac®.

Performance

The Seagate Backup Plus Portable Storage 5TB is a plug and play device. I currently use it now mainly as a storage for my video content and raw clips. From the Seagate Backup Plus 5 TB where my videos are transferred and stored, I directly edit my videos while it is plugged and running allowing me to work efficiently, and not draining my laptop's performance.

Always eject from the laptop before unplugging the device

I can instantly transfer 10 GB files in less than 5 minutes, and work with different files concurrently.

The Verdict

The Seagate Backup Plus Portable 5 TB is a perfect companion for keeping your files and photos safe. Its material is solid durable giving you confidence in handling and bringing it wherever you go.   It gives me more space, storage, and time to perform other tasks for my work and content creation.  I always invest in good devices and gadgets for my work, and Seagate is one of my trusted brands.  However, just like in any device and external storage, it is extremely important to keep the Seagate Backup Plus 5 TB laid flat on a table or surface when using and running it. Make sure to also eject the device on the laptop before unplugging it to prevent data corruption.
