The Backup Plus performed quite well considering its size and the fact that it is being compared to some of the market’s best drives. Although it had the slowest transfer speeds compared to the WD My Passport Ultra and Seagate Seven Portable drive, it has the highest capacity. The My Passport Ultra is one of the best-selling portable drives on the market, so the fact that the Backup Plus can keep up performance-wise is a great sign for Seagate.

Seagate Backup Plus 4TB Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0
The Seagate Backup Plus 4TB is a solid option for people who want a high capacity external hard drive that’s compact and easily portable, plus it’s one of the first 4TB 2.5″ drives available. Along with high storage capacity, the Backup Plus offers features that can’t be found elsewhere. With Seagate Dashboard, it can backup files across a range of devices, including mobile devices, and it’s able to back up the photos you upload to sites like Facebook and Flickr in a way that’s fast and hassle-free.
Performance is average and on par with other similar hard drives, so there’s nothing special there, but the addition of Lyve makes this useful for people who want to use to automatically back up photos, and having 200GB of Microsoft OneDrive storage is also a nice perk, as it provides a way to make sure important files and photos are backed up on the drive and in the cloud.
