Seagate Wireless Plus 2TB review

Big capacity, superb connectivity but comes at a steep price

The Seagate Wireless Plus 2TB offers an impressive amount of storage space, with wireless access for a high, but not unacceptable price. With an easy setup and the ability to sync to Dropbox and Google Drive (all within a reasonable small package) the Seagate Wireless Plus 2TB offers an excellent storage solution.

We liked

The conservative design and how small the Seagate Wireless Plus is an attractive feature for those who want to take their data with them on the go. I was also impressed its storage capacity, the long battery life and how easy it was to connect.

We disliked

The confusing power button (which isn't actually a power button). It also lacks a clear power indicator to show how much battery life is left. Right now, a red solid colour means 20% battery life remaining, orange means less than 90% left and green, more than 90%.

Verdict

If money is no object, then this is probably the best wireless autonomous storage device on the market. It is elegant, has tons of storage and a battery life that is superior to almost all of its competitors.

I would have wanted a proper on/off button as well as a USB port to use it as a charger for a mobile device, but that might be a step too far. One thing to bear in mind though is that 2TB is a lot of data to lose, so I'd encourage you to regularly back up its contents or use it as a transient storage device.
