A few weeks ago, I bought a 4TB Seagate Backup Plus Portable online from one of the local sellers in Manila. This drive will serve as a storage for snapshot backups of my NAS (Network-Attached Storage) at home. Below are the pictures I took during the unboxing. 🙂
The label on the box says 200GB of Cloud Storage for OneDrive is included but must be activated by June 20, 2017.
The top of the box is has a tamper-evident seal that guarantees that the initial contents of the drive came straight form the manufacturer.
The same tamper-evident seal can be found on the bottom of the box. This is how it would look like if the seal has been tampered with.
The contents of the box are the Quick Start Guide and the drive itself inside a protective plastic shell which also contains the USB cable.
Here’s the “top” of the protective plastic shell. Notice the six nubs that should somehow absorb and distribute the force should there be any impact from this side during transit. The protective shell is easy to open, much like Amazon’s frustration-free packages.
The drive is wrapped in plastic inside the plastic shell together with the USB cable.
The drive itself comes with a Micro-B SuperSpeed USB receptacle.
The included cable is a Micro-B SuperSpeed on one end and a standard Type-A on the other end.
After plugging it in on my laptop, it was recognized immediately by Windows 10 without the need to install any drivers. The OS reports that the total drive space is 3.63TB and so far, this is more than enough of what I need for my NAS but as the saying goes, “you can never have too much backups.” 🙂
