Stocks in this article: STX

Seagate Technology plc. (NASDAQ: STX) today introduced SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to the award-winning Backup Plus storage for Mac. Currently available through Amazon.com and from Apple Stores in November, both Backup Plus Portable for Mac and Backup Plus Desktop for Mac drives will feature the new USB 3.0 interface, which is also compatible with earlier USB 2.0 ports. This new interface means faster transfer of data, so you can backup more quickly, up to 10x that of USB 2.0, via TimeMachine ® or simply transferring a file from a computer to external storage.

Selected as the Editor’s Choice portable external drive by PC Magazine, Seagate® Backup Plus hard drives were first introduced in June of this year. Designed to work interchangeably with both Windows ® and Apple ® computers, these new drives deliver features to protect, share and save nearly every aspect of one’s digital life. Seagate Backup Plus products include a software feature that makes them the world’s first external hard drives to provide a way to backup content from social networks, such as Facebook and Flickr. The Seagate Dashboard software included on Backup Plus for Mac drives delivers a quick and easy path to Save and Share personal photos and videos on Facebook and Flickr.

A Versatile Storage Device

In 2010, Seagate adopted the Universal Storage Module (USM®) standard, which enables consumers to easily add the newest Mac ® and PC connection capabilities to their Seagate storage product even if these technologies are not available at the time of purchase. Backup Plus for Mac will now provide a USB 3.0 cable out of the box and can be upgraded to Thunderbolt™ Technology or FireWire 800, as the need presents itself. To add yet another level of versatility, Seagate has introduced a way to have the company’s external storage products work cross-platform with both Mac ® and Windows ® operating systems without reformatting. 1
