Seagate is no stranger to the portable hard drive market, having come up with some hits of theirs in the past. Remember the Seagate GoFlex Slim Drive, which was touted to be the slimmest portable external hard drive in the world when it was revealed a couple of years back? Well, Seagate is still in the game of delivering quality storage on the go for the masses, and their latest attempt would see the Seagate Slim being introduced to the masses.
One thing is for sure, the Seagate Slim lives up to its name, being a wee bit larger in dimensions compared to the iPhone 5 from Apple, making it the ideal storage companion for folks who want a sleek and portable look and feel without compromising on space. Apart from the hardware that delivers 500GB of storage space in a chassis that measures a mere 9.6mm thin, the Seagate Slim also comes with Seagate Dashboard, which is an easy-to-use backup software that paves the way for one-click or scheduled backup and the ability to back up Facebook and Flickr albums. Compatible with USB 2.0, the Seagate Slim sports a speedy USB 3.0 interface to keep up with the times. Depending on the retailer, the Seagate Slim would cost you anywhere from $80 to $100, backed by a 2-year warranty.
