The Seagate Backup Plus Fast portable drive is performance-heavy mobile device that provides users a plethora of storage and is the first portable drive that offers 4TB of storage space. Backup Plus Fast is fully USB powered, allowing users to bring along their videos, music, and pictures without having to carry an extra external power supply while on the go. Also included is the Seagate Dashboard, which offers users the ability to schedule and automate backups for their computer, social networks and mobile devices.

Thanks for the review as always.

 

1) Since 2 drives need to be powered by USB, USB3 is a must and it is not backwards compatible to USB2 whatsoever?

 

2) How does the case inside look like? Any more pictures from the tear-down would be great. How are the 2 drives kept separate from each other? Little bit of foam or something more sophisticated? Thermals might also be of concern in such a tiny yet powerful package.

1) the interface is fine, they include a y cable to get a second USB port power if needed. 

 

2) Please hold...

Ah, thanks. You guys rock!

So, I assume the drives are screwed on to this 'bracket' with 4 screws each? Covered then by the black rubber/foam pieces.

Yup, and they are back to back inside that cage. Through CrystalDiskInfo we were able to monitor the heat from the drive. During idle/low usage it averaged about 30-35C, where constant write activity brought it up to about 50C.
