The USB 3.0 Performance kit PS-110 will set you back around $180
. This seems like a lot for a 500GB external drive on the surface. Once you consider that it can exceed the performance of many internal drives [most laptops still use 5400 RPM drives], can work with both USB 2.0 and 3.0, and has one of the best backup and protection software suites on the market included; well then the price is not that high. I know that as I accumulate more and more information, I find the need to back up my data an even higher priority. This is true for more and more people as they add new pictures and files to their personal store of data. If they have a system failure; they run the risk of losing years of irreplaceable images and documents. With that at stake, well $180 is not so bad, and when you throw in a 5-year warranty it is quite the value.Conclusion
As we mentioned above in the Value section, people are amassing more and more data. Some of this is junk, but most of it is not. We are a digital society where our Mom’s and Dad’s had physical photographs and negatives to take care of; we have digital copies of these. As with the real thing, if the digital copies are corrupted or lost they are gone forever. This makes the need for a solid and capable personal backup system even greater. Seagate can certainly provide this for you with just about any of their external USB drives, but the new USB 3.0 Performance Kit PS-110 is simply the fastest one out. It hands down outperforms the other drives in the line, even the e-SATA WS-110 cannot keep up with it. If you are looking for a good, fast and solid backup drive and software combination then I would honestly not look any further than the Seagate BlackArmor line up with the USB 3.0 enabled PS-110 at the top of that list. With its speed and ease of use we are happy to award the Seagate BlackArmor USB 3.0 Performance kit PS-110 out Prosumer Must Have award.
