Seagate BackUp Plus Desktop 6TB STDT6000100 Review
- 3.0 USB port
- 6TB Storage capacity

The Seagate backup plus desktop is a good upgrade and alternative to the smaller Backup plus portable device. It features massive storage of 6TB and very efficient for storage of all kinds of videos even in HD as well as other files. Just like many other external hard disks from Seagate, this hard drive shares the same Seagate Dashboard Backup application which is very user friendly and easy to use. This Seagate Dashboard allows you to easily operate the hard drive, whether you want to back up your files or schedule a backup or even connect it to other devices such as android and iOS. One key feature of this hard drive is that it is compatible to both google drive and dropbox, thus, you can take your data to the cloud without much of a hustle and access it wherever and whenever you want.
What is the design?
The Seagate Backup plus desktop has the standard look of an external desktop drive. It is slightly bigger than the internal hard drive of a desktop and looks more like a brick. On one side the hard drive has a standard 3.0 USB port and next to it is a power port. This hard disk consumes a considerable amount of power and for this reason it cannot be powered by a bus and hence the need for a separate power port. The casing is made of plastic and overall the hard disk feels very solid when holding it on the hands. On the sides and base of this casing are ventilations or perforations that help in air circulation in order to keep the hard disk cool. The main disk is enclosed inside the casing and cannot be removed, repaired or tampered with.
Is it Compatible with Mac and iOS?
Using a simple software you would be able to connect this external hard drive to any android, Mac and all devices that use iOS. This way, the Seagate Backup Plus desktop is compatible with all kinds of devices and compatibility is not really a big problem. The external hard drive is also preloaded with the Seagate Backup plus software. This is a useful software especially when using it with Windows. The software has got three main features which are Mobile Back up, social and PC Backup. PC Backup is for backing up data when using your computer. It helps you to automatically back up the required files. The software automatically detects what needs to be backed up and you don’t have to do it manually.
Conclusion: Should I buy it?
This external hard drive has massive storage capabilities and is compatible with many devices. It will definitely serve its purpose efficiently and would be a good product that is worth your money.
