[MUSIC] Hi guys, this is a Backup Plus Ultra Slim portable drive from Seagate. Now the drive here is to replace the old Backup Plus Slim that came out last year. How do you know? Well I have the brand new unit of the old drive right here. Let's take a look. [MUSIC] They'll both very similar except the Ultra Slim is Slimmer at just 0.38 inch while the other one is at 0.5 inch. Now in testing the new one is also faster with a sustained real world speed of some 150 megabyte per second for writing, and some 170 megabyte per second for reading. But most importantly, this one also come in gold, nothing beats that really. And guess what? It also come in silver or platinum color also. How do I know? Well, because I have another brand new unit of that right here. But the new drive's great if you wanna back up your laptop on the go or just expand its short space. And as it cost of just $90 for two terabytes, it's quite a deal, really. But it could be better though if it had your PC port instead of this regular micro usb three prong thing right here. And by the way, the new drive is also available in one terabyte for just $70. How do I know? Why because I have a, where is it? Well just take my word for it, you do that anyway, right? That's because I'm Dung Ho and this is a [UNKNOWN] plus ultra slim portable drive. [NOISE] You know what, it was right here. Hey guys, I need my drive back, okay? Seriously.
