   As you all saw in this review the Backup Plus Ultra Slim is a very compact portable hard drive and that obviously means Seagate placed performance in second place (and capacity in 3rd since this is available just in 1/2TB models). Even so however I can’t say that we were disappointed in terms of read & write performance (far from it really) and since in the past when moving from 1TB 2.5” drives to 2TB ones we noticed a significant bump in performance I’m pretty certain that the 2TB variant of the Backup Plus Ultra Slim is faster compared to our sample (1TB). The 200GB free OneDrive subscription is also a huge plus especially for professionals who’d like access to their files from anywhere in the world and don’t already own something similar.


   1TB portable hard drives are not really expensive nowadays and neither is the Backup Plus Ultra Slim 1TB by Seagate since it currently retails for just USD69.99 inside the USA (Amazon.com) and for 64Euros inside the EU (Amazon.co.uk). You can always save a few bucks by choosing another 1TB PHD model but none is as compact as this and ontop of that I doubt any other can compete with the free 200GB OneDrive subscription Seagate gives. Bottom line if you’re looking for the most compact 2.5” PHD in the market today and you think you can make due with 1/2TB then the Backup Plus Ultra Slim line should be on top of your to buy list which is also why it gets our Golden Award.
