My update of the best external desktop hard drive went live on at The Wirecutter last week, but I’m only getting around to mentioning it now. The latest pick looks very much the same as my last pick, but well… it’s not. It’s the Seagate Backup Plus Desk: Same Seagate looks, new Seagate taste. The company has shuttered it’s venerable Goflex line of hardware and started down the road with this new moniker. The latest iteration of the drive offers some decent social media integration, automatic back up software and most intriguingly of all, both are decent enough that you might actually want to use them.
Go figure right?
