The Seagate Backup Plus is the first drive in the new line of Seagate Backup external hard drives that replaces the popularSeagate GoFlex family . While the GoFlex name is gone, the new drives remain flexible and can be used with the adapters made for the GoFlex drives. The Plus notion means that the drive can do more than just regular local backups but also backing up users' online contents, such as Facebook profiles.

Similar to previous drives from Seagate, the Backup Plus portable drive comes in two parts, the drive itself and an adapter that determines the type of connections. Out of the box, the drive works with both Windows and Mac machines without reformatting thanks to the included driver software that allows Macs to read and write NTFS.

In my testing, the Backup Plus offered very fast performance, both with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. The drive is bus-powered and comes in many different colors. It's also slightly more compact than the GoFlex drives.

If you want a good-looking and compact portable drive to back up your computer or extend its storage space, at the suggested price of $140 for 1TB (or $130 and $120 for the 750GB and 500GB, respectively), the new Seagate Backup Plus makes an excellent buy. It's also safe to say that the drive's street pricing will be lower so maybe you'll want to wait a bit for a better deal. For owners of the existing GoFlex portable drives, though, there's no need to upgrade.
