Seagate has announced the world’s largest capacity mobile drive. The new Backup Plus Portable can store 5TB of data in a small and lightweight case that can easily be carried around in a camera bag.
The new drive measures just 4.5x3x0.8 inches in dimensions, and it weighs 0.545 pounds (~0.25kg). Inside is Seagate’s 2.5-inch BarraCuda platter technology, and the outside of the drive features a durable aluminum cover.
“Consumers are creating more higher-resolution and higher volumes of content than ever before,” Seagate says. “From action cam enthusiasts to selfie lovers to doting parents who capture every milestone moment on their 4K smartphones, the need for even more space to store photos, movies, music and content—and take it on the go—is growing.”
Features of the drive include compatibility with both Windows and Mac and fast data transfer via USB 3.0.
You’ll be able to purchase the Seagate Backup Plus Portable 5TB this month in your choice of four colors (black, silver, red, and blue) for $190.
