I have to admit that I haven't been much of a Seagate fan for a number of years as I have had so many of their drives fail on me. Because of the past high failure rates we standardized on WD drives in all of our production machines. But, like with everything else it's always good to revisit things again after a period of time.

The Seagate Backup Plus Hub 4TB is a nice looking item and I wanted to see if it performed as well as it looks. I was intrigued by the front mounted USB ports, will they work like a hub or just provide power for charging other devices? How warm will it run and how much noise will there be?

Setting up the drive was simple enough, remove the power adapter, USB 3 cable, and drive from the box, power the drive up (no switches here) and connect the USB cable at both ends. The only indicator on the drive is the Seagate icon, it lights up when the drive has a connection to a computer indicting its active. Windows 10 immediately recognized the drive and added it. I tried it on Windows Server 2012 R2, Server 2008 R2, Windows 7 laptop, a Windows 10 tablet and in each case there were no connection issues. The drive was identified and added in less than 30 seconds. Ok maybe Seagate deserves more attention.

I checked to see how the drive was formatted and to my surprise its NTFS. Ok I'm now starting to warm up to the thing.

Running the startup program located on the drive launches a browser that takes you to a page where you register and download the Dashboard Application. I appreciate that you need to download the program rather than getting a CD with the unit as it's a simple fact that software by the time it gets to you on a CD is four versions behind already which means you need to download the updated version anyway.

Massive massive storage and for a really decent price, this was plug and play out of the box. I like the fact that it stands up stably on it's side - it takes up less space than my old flat 500GB drive of a similar size. It chunters a lot when it does a back-up, but that doesn't last for long and I actually don't care what it sounds like, I'm more interested it how it performs and what it provides. I charge my phone overnight from one of the front usb charging ports, which saves me trailing a cord off the desk to an inaccessible point.

The case is piano gloss black, has a nice curve to the front and both sides are made from perforated metal to allow ventilation regardless of which side you stand it up on. It's an attractive case and I like it.

It's taken all the data from my laptop and old external drives and I still have ~6TB left. I'm hoping it lasts for many years like my older drives have.

This item is worth every penny, I bought it for my Xbox one & works a treat

I have 130 games stored on this hard drive and it's only used 27.5% of the hard drive. So it is definitely gonna take me a long time to fill this hard drive.

Small tip on Xbox one external hard drives
********************************************

Don't get gready and buy small and think I'll use 2 external hard drives on Xbox one. They will work but your gamepad will have problems staying connected to Xbox one.

2 external hard drives is too much of a power drain on Xbox one, these are external hard drives with its own power supply but still still a power drain on Xbox one wireless controller board in Xbox one.

I've got lots of data - mainly my music and video collection, plus my work archives - that needs to be stored and backed up. I've got a heterogenous collection of hard drives, some Thunderbolt, some USB3. The oldest drives are about 5 years old, and I felt it was time to change them; every hard drive will eventually fail, and 5 years is a long time.

Based on the reviews here, I decided to try out one of these drives. Having an 8 TB drive instead of 2 and 4 TB drives, can make my life a lot easier. I got the drive yesterday, and immediately started transferring data. The drive gets about 80-90 MB/sec transferring files of all sizes, and, above all, it's the quietest hard drive I've ever heard. I hate noise; I work in a home office, and I have no devices with fans (neither my computers nor my hard drive units), and quiet is really important to me.

I like this so much, I've already ordered another, and may get a third, to phase out some drives that are around three years old.

Be aware that this doesn't work with a PS4 updated to 4.5 firmware which supports external hard drives. PS4 doesnt like HUB external hard drives. I bought one in Argos and returned it as it wasn't compatible.

Size: 4 TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This HDD connected without difficulty to my Windows 7 PC. Simply connect the mains adapter to the HDD, then link the HDD to the PC with the supplied USB cable and you're away. The interface is super-speed USB 3.0, but is also backwards compatible with the older USB standards if your computer is not that new.

Protip: when you first boot up the drive, there is a link in the root folder that takes you to the Seagate website where you are prompted to register the product, so make a note of the drive's serial number before you tuck it away somewhere inaccessible!

The socket on the HDD is the USB 3.0 micro-B type.
When the disk is in use, the illuminated logo on the front of the housing pulses gently.
The casing is made of a shiny black plastic that collects fingerprints like a CSI technician.

There are two USB sockets on the front of the casing, but there is no indication that these are USB 3.0 other than in the blurb on the product's Amazon web page. There's nothing in the documentation supplied with the HDD and the plastic tabs inside the sockets are black, rather than the blue normally used for USB 3.0. Now, that could be an aesthetic decision to match the all-black casing, but I can't help wondering if they are, in fact, USB 2.0 only.

One other bonus with this device is the inclusion of a 2-year subscription to Microsoft's OneDrive cloud storage, with 200GB of space. Setting this up is a bit of a faff as you have to upload a document and then create another using Office Online before it will register the upgrade.

If maximum storage is your primary requirement, there is a similarly-priced 5TB Seagate external HDD available, but without the extra USB ports and it doesn't offer the OneDrive subscription (at time of writing).
