Last year at CES 2015, Seagate released one of the thinnest platter based 500GB hard drives to date, the Ultra-Thin SEVEN which is, by its namesake, only 7mm thick. While squeezing a spinning platter into a casing that thin is impressive, Seagate needed to do more for CES 2016.
The new Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Slim is the world's slimmest 2TB mobile hard drive and packs additional cloud based functionality in the box to further bolster its feature set. In addition to sporting a svelt 9.6mm thickness, which is barely thicker than the original Ultra-Thin SEVEN at 7mm, the drive also includes 200GBs of Microsoft One Drive storage and Lyve software compatibility.
With 2TBs on tap, the Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Slim 2TB also includes features that make it easier for users to backup their their stuff or risk losing it. Expect to see it on the market later this year from Amazon and the Seagate Online Store.
