Seagate Backup Plus Hub Review - Hard Drive with Built in USB 3.0 Hub !

Buy it on Amazon – http://lon.tv/i3d1m (affiliate link) – Seagate has a new USB 3.0 external hard drive that has a powered USB hub built in. It’s great for low end computers and compatible with just about anything with a USB port. See more storage: http://lon.tv/storage and subscribe! http://lon.tv/s

This is quick unboxing of a Seagate Backup Plus Hub USB 3.0 6TB desktop hard drive purchased from Maplin in the UK for £119.99. I thought I would do a quick unboxing video – since I was un-boxing it anyway. I am going to use this for backup and double-copies of my video archive and uploads, 4K video files can take up lots and of storage space quite fast.

    The drive makes so much noise and vibrations. It's so loud! I'm writing to seagate. Had WD before this. Disappointed with Seagate.
    This subscriber had the same problem as me!

    Will this 8TB drive be recognized by an Android TV box running Android 7?
    If it is then I'll buy one.
    (My Android TV box DOES recognize my 4TB USB powered drive no problem.)

    Great video, I just got one for storing my raw and rendered video files, hope it is good. My old WD is three years old and 3 tb and has been flawless since new. I couldn't resist the low price for 8 tb. Hope it is as reliable, thx.

    HI, I bought the 6TB backup plus and I have run out of space now, If I buy another one, maybe a 8TB wil that continue backup from previous drive or will it start backing up my machine from the start again?
