One of the many exciting storage products unveiled at CES 2014 is the new Seagate 4TB Backup Plus Fast.
It features a pair of 2.5″ laptop-sized, 2TB drives inside configured in RAID 0. The USB 3.0 connectivity allows you to realize the full speed benefits of the RAID 0 configuration with transfer speeds up to 220MB/s. Additionally, the drive is bus-powered, which means it is easy to carry around a whole lot of storage while on the go and access it from anywhere with you laptop alone powering the drive.
The price is a very reasonable $270 considering the portability, storage space and speed this unit delivers.
In addition to the 4TB unit, Seagate launched several other slim units in the Backup Plus Slim line ranging from 500GB to 2TB in size. There are single drive units and, therefore, about half as thick as the 4TB unit.
