Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Slim will come in two standard colours – Gold or Platinum and will be available with 1TB or 2TB storage.
Seagate’s Backup Plus Ultra Slim external HDD makes for an extremely thin and lightweight experience for the user. Weighing just 136 gms, the hard drive weighs less than most smartphones out there – making for an effortless device to be carried around. The thin frame will also make for less bulkiness in a backpack.
Ultra Slim drives will come in two standard colours – Gold or Platinum and will be available with 1TB or 2TB storage. The top surface has small circular indentations – of which i am not a big fan. The good thing, however, is that the device appears to be resistant to small scratches and isn’t smudge friendly.
Holding the Ultra Slim drive in your hand, you can appreciate the sturdiness – with no creaking or cracking when you press firmly on the device.

The drive was quick to connect to my Macbook Air, and showed 997 GB of available space. I was able to transfer the entire sixth season of Game of Thrones (4.5GB) onto the hard drive in less than 1 minute over a standard USB 3.0 port. That, is blazing fast!
Seagate’s Ultra Slim drives can connect to Mac OS X 10.7 or higher or Windows 7 or higher operating systems. The drives can also be connected to Android devices (3.0 or higher)
The Ultra Slim drives come with a three-year warranty, and gives you free 200 GB of cloud storage (OneDrive) for two years
