I don’t know if you feel that the market competition in today’s storage industry is becoming more and more fierce. Of course, all of this stems from our constant need for capacity, performance, portability, and aesthetics (which is obviously something that everyone is proud of and happy with). Science and technology change life, and the new needs of life are constantly stimulating the progress of science and technology. I used to feel that I had a 64G USB drive, and I was basically worry-free.
Basically stress-free such as small videos of action at the test center. As a result, it was recently discovered that 64G USB disks are too stretched: today’s SLR cameras have tens of megabytes for a photo source file, and the photos taken after a day of going out to play 64G can’t fit at all, and even high-definition short videos can’t fit a few. Therefore, I also want to buy a thin and good-looking, sufficient capacity, the key is that the price is not expensive, cost-effective mobile hard disk.
So I got this Seagate 1TB USB3.0 Backup Plus Ruipin mobile hard drive, the price is also very suitable, why didn’t I buy 4T? Too thick and too heavy, inconvenient to hold, 1T is relatively the cheapest and can meet my use needs, that’s the reality. After placing the order, JD’s delivery is really fast, and it will arrive the next day, so let’s bring you the unboxing.
The box is very weighty in the hand and strong and resistant to pressure. The front of the box is a red and white color scheme, because I bought Seagate’s colorful series, the red and white color tone feels like more color display, I think it is also the brand wants to highlight this “colorful” element by itself. The eye-catching orange-red “Slim” word in the center of the package has more “+” in the upper right corner is the model difference this time,
At the top is the new Seagate logo, which you’ll see later on your hard drive. At the bottom is information about the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan.
The back of the box focuses on the features of the product and how to use it, and at the top is a schematic diagram of the cloud storage space that features the hard disk.
On the side of the box are information such as production and system adaptation.
There is a disposable seal on the top of the box, and the hard disk body can be obtained by pulling it out after opening. The hard disk body is protected by a layer of plastic film, which can effectively prevent accidental scratches on the surface of the hard disk during transportation, etc., Virgo means heart and satisfaction.
The packaging accessories are very simple, in addition to the body accident, there are also instructions, a warranty card, and a USB 3.0 data cable of about 45cm. Gone.
The front of the hard disk is a sterling silver metal brushed style, and there is an engraved groove in the upper left corner of the front, which echoes the Seagate logo stamped with metal hot stamping in the lower right corner, which makes the front of the hard disk look very neat, but there is a touch of elegance inside.
In addition, the groove is not useless, but a white LED indicator.
The side and back of the hard disk are pure black matte design, and the corner of the back of the hard disk has the relevant safety mark and SN code of the product. Most of the rest is a reproduction of the Seagate logo, which is very streamlined to show that the product is derived from the Seagate design. In addition, S also stands for SPEED, giving people the concept and hint of speed.
The design and full texture feel make the cooler technology products have a lot more beauty and temperature.
The size of the hard disk body is 113.5*76*12.1mm, in fact, it will feel really small and mini in your hand. The thickness of 76mm is very similar to the thickness of the iPhone 6SP, weighing about 120g.
You can’t help but sigh that technology is really developing rapidly, and our lives are becoming more and more high-tech. It’s winter and it’s cold in my hand – don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a good thing that the heat dissipates faster.
The hard disk interface adopts USB 3.0 Micro-B interface, and the USB 3.0 interface is compatible with USB 2.0, which is more convenient to use.
The shell of the overall hard disk does not have a single exposed screw, which feels like it is molded in one piece, and the light thickness makes this product more beautiful and beautiful.
The notebook tested this time is MSI’s GL72, and the specific configuration is as follows
For those who buy new hard disks, you must want to know how much capacity you can actually use for a 1TB hard disk?
Here under popular science, all storage products, due to the manufacturer’s calculation method and the operating system’s calculation method is different, the manufacturer calculates according to 1MB=1000KB, and the computer is calculated according to 1MB=1024KB. Therefore, the actual capacity seen in the computer will be different from the capacity claimed by the manufacturer’s trademark, don’t fuss and think that the manufacturer miscalculated the capacity.
From the actual test, it can be seen that the actual capacity of the Seagate Backup Plus Slim+ mobile hard drive (1TB) is 931G, which is actually within a reasonable range.
Next is the read and write speed test
Through the software AS SSD Benchmark, CrystalDiskMark and TxBENCH three software can see that the hard disk read and write speed is more than 100MB/s, thin and light volume, portable weight, is a very excellent daily mobile storage device.
This is followed by the actual file copy test. The software I use is FastCopy.
In normal copying, you can see that the highest speed reaches more than 340MB/s, and when testing software, the speed is about 108MB/s.
Based on the above tests, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim+ 1T portable hard drive performed stably in terms of read and write speed during the test, and the read/write speed of more than 100MB/s was also satisfactory.
Seagate mobile hard drives come directly with backup software, the advantage of frequent backup is that if important files are accidentally lost, then you can use the restore function to retrieve these important data.
The whole backup process is also very simple, after installing the software, you can follow the step-by-step operation to complete the backup.
In addition, Seagate Backup Plus Slim+ participates in the Adobe Creative Cloud photography program, which can be redeemed for free by Adobe members. For those who need to use Photoshop and Lightroom, this little surprise will feel very interesting.
The portable hard drive has built-in drivers, so it can be used freely on Apple and Microsoft PCs, seamlessly switching.
Talk about the cons
For example, the appearance of the hard disk is easy to be contaminated with fingerprints, and it is also easier to scratch.
If you want to try to update the mechanical hard disk of the notebook, you can actually try to remove this thin and light portable hard disk and directly put it into the notebook for use. After all, the price is not expensive, it is easy and comfortable.
Summary of the Seagate Backup Plus 1T portable hard drive
In terms of appearance, the design of Seagate Backup Plus Slim+ is very simple and beautiful, the front is cool and noble, the back curve is smooth, and the design of the screwless package also makes the appearance more elegant. When actually experienced, there was very little noise.
In terms of performance, the product has reached an average speed of about 100MB/s, which is enough for daily use, and the built-in backup software of the product itself is very intimate and simple to operate. And the price is not expensive, the cost performance is very high, for business people who only need daily large-capacity storage and need a thin and fashionable appearance, it is still worth recommending.
