Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

Dell Vostro V130 laptop - Dell Vostro V130 laptop

“The Vostro V130 is bit of a mixed bag. It looks good, sports a reasonable range of features and doesn’t break the bank?unless you spec it up, when it then loses its value appeal. Its lightweight and robust design is ideal for frequent travellers, but the lack of built-in security extras such as fingerprint readers and TPM chips won’t wash with corporates. The biggest problem is that there’s really nothing that distinguishes it, especially compared to a ThinkPad or MacBook Air. And then there’s the unacceptable battery life. The Vostro V130 might suit the individual, but it’s not well-rounded enough for enterprises.”

Seagate BlackArmor PS110 USB 3.0 External Drive - Seagate BlackArmor PS110 USB 3.0 External Drive

The new USB 3.0 standard is backward compatible with USB 2.0. So just about every desktop you run into will be able to read USB 3.0 devices, but will be limited to USB 2.0 speeds. But with the use of an expansion card, it can get the full speed of USB 3.0. Laptops have also been limited to USB 2.0 speeds. We are sure that newer models will adopt USB 3.0. But if you are like us, a laptop is a significant investment. And we aren't looking to buy an expensive new laptop just to get USB 3.0. At CES 2010, Seagate showed us the BlackArmor PS110 USB 3.0 External Drive and we couldn't wait to get our hands one. Why would we what USB 3.0 on a laptop? Well for one thing, it's theoretically up to 10x faster than USB 2.0. Backing up to USB 2.0 on the lab's laptop was a 'Start the backup and go to sleep.' affair. Our only other option was to pull the 2.5 inch Sata drive out, connect it to a desktop, and backup or clone it from there. Which is what we had been doing.
