Seagate Replica: the Most Appropriately-Named Gadget in the World

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  April 28, 2009


Seagate recently announced their take on Apple’s Time Machine + Time Capsule combo: an external hard drive that provides effortless automated backups. The backup device is called Replica, which is both what it makes and also what it is. Apple must be so proud. But does the Replica really replicate the Time Machine/Capsule experience?

BB Gadgets’ Rob Beschizza is lucky enough to have a last name that Snoop Dogg would just love to drop in a song. Beschizza was also lucky enough to be handed a Replica for testing, and judging from his experience, I’d say Seagate nailed it: “After a few hours of use, I forgot it was there, which is the entire point.”

Even the ad is Apple-ish. Although the Replica doesn’t copy the Time Capsule’s wireless capabilities, it does have Time Machine’s incremental backup and restore function, which is the main point of a backup device anyway. The 250 GB “single-PC” version will sell for $130 USD, while the 500 Gb “multi-PC” version will sell for $200 USD. Good thing Seagate didn’t copy Apple’s pricing scheme.
