THIS GADGET SAVES MY BACON EVERY SINGLE DAY.
I’m absolutely not kidding when I say the Seagate Wireless external hard drive is a life-saver when your income is based on the documents you create.
No cords. No mess. Lightweight. Pops in my handbag and I forget about it. No whipping it out in public (ahem) when I need to access a file. If it’s on, it’s broadcasting its own wifi signal straight to my device(s)–which means I don’t need to use public wi-fi when I’m out and about to connect securely to my files.
IT EVEN LETS ME BACK UP DATA FROM MY IPAD AND IPHONE!
N.B. I’m backing up the gajillions of photos I take as I type this post!
One of the best features is it syncs with Dropbox and Google Drive. (And if I were way cooler than I actually am, I could also stream my videos and music from it!) PLUS, if I’ve created a document or image on my Mac and want to access it on my iPad when I’m away from a wi-fi hotspot…boom. Done.
I love my 2TB because I never worry about running out of room, but the 1T Wireless External Hard Drive is about $35 cheaper. (And for $40 cheaper you can get a 500GB bur for five dollars difference why wouldn’t you get the 1T?)
The only drawback for me is OS specific, I cannot use this to archive Time Machine backups. But I have another hard drive for that (redundancy!), so this wireless one is just for on-the-go backups. (And I do manually back up individual files/file folders.)
