How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

As the successor to the FreeAgent Go Flex, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable keeps all of the key features of its predecessor, including USB 3.0, and optional adapters for other interfaces like Thunderbolt and Firewire 800. So what's new? The Backup Plus is faster than the GoFlex, and Seagate's backup software has been reworked, adding options to back up files to Facebook, YouTube and other social networking sites. Of course, you don't have to use the social features (or even Seagate's software) to get a lot of out of this drive, and if you're looking for a reliable, flexible, upgradeable portable drive, the Backup Plus Portable is the one to get.
