The Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Slim HDD has arrived in India and is looking to take up the mantle of the world’s thinnest 2TB mobile hard drive in the nation. The device is just 9.6mm thin and measures 2.5-inch across, making it an ideal option for those seeking portability.
The Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Slim is being offered in shiny platinum and gold colors with a stylish design to distinguish itself from its competitors. The brand claims its 9.6mm thickness makes it 50% slimmer than other 2TB HDDs available right now in the market.
The Seagate HDD will be sold in 1TB and 2TB models, with the former priced at Rs 5699 and the latter at Rs 8399. The brand has chosen to sell the gadget exclusively via Amazon India. It’s looking to tempt potential customers into buying the HDD by promising a free 2-year subscription to Microsoft OneDrive bundled with 200GB of cloud storage.
Like other products in its portfolio, the new Backup Plus Ultra Slim also ships in-built with Lyve. The cloud-based software allows users to view their personal data such as photos and videos from anywhere within a single consolidated library. It also comes with the Seagate Dashboard which allows for convenient backing up of files.
The Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Slim requires at least Mac OS X 10.7 or Window 7 to function. Specs-wise, it features a USB 3.0 port and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports. You can buy it now via Amazon India starting at Rs 5699.
