5 Reasons For for Choosing the Transcend StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb

USB Powered

The Transcend StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb is a USB powered external hard drive (as are the Seagate Expansion 3TB and the Toshiba Canvio - 1Tb), but the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb and the ioSafe SoloPRO - 2Tb are not. More ...

Whether the hard drive is powered by USB or not.

Password Protection

The Transcend StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb has a password protection, whereas the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb, the ioSafe SoloPRO - 2Tb, the Seagate Expansion 3TB and the Toshiba Canvio - 1Tb do not have this feature. More ...

'Password Protection' indicates whether the hard drive has password protection as a security measure against unauthorised entry.

Setting a password on your hard drive stops anyone plugging it in and reading the information stored on it - it's a good mid-level security feature.

£28 Cheaper

The Transcend StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb costs £27.88 less than the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb, costs £405.66 less than the ioSafe SoloPRO - 2Tb and costs £40.67 less than the Seagate Expansion 3TB.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this external hard drive and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

More Popular

The Transcend StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb is a more popular choice amongst buyers.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Transcend StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb

36g Heavier

The Transcend StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb is a 185 external hard drive. That's 815g lighter than the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb (1kg), 6.6kg lighter than the ioSafe SoloPRO - 2Tb (6.8kg), 817g lighter than the Seagate Expansion 3TB (1kg) and 36g heavier than the Toshiba Canvio - 1Tb (149g). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the external hard drive, measured in grams (g).

A heavier hard drive will be bulkier, and more annoying to carry around.

Vastly Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Transcend StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb is a 1 external hard drive, and so does the Toshiba Canvio - 1Tb. That's 1TB smaller than the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb and the ioSafe SoloPRO - 2Tb (2TB) and 2TB smaller than the Seagate Expansion 3TB (3TB). More ...

'Hard Drive Capacity' denotes how much data the hard drive can hold, measured in gigabytes (GB).

A bigger hard drive capacity means that it can hold more files and data at once.

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

The Transcend StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb, the Seagate Expansion 3TB and the Toshiba Canvio - 1Tb), whereas the ioSafe SoloPRO - 2Tb has this feature. More ...

'Wi-Fi' indicates whether the hard drive can connect to wireless networks or not.

A wi-fi connection on your hard drive means that you can connect directly to it to read/write data without an actual physical connection, meaning you can access your storage from anywhere.

Slower Hard Drive Speed

Transcend StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb is only 5 hard drive rotational speed, and so does the Toshiba Canvio - 1Tb. That's 1,800 RPM slower than the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb (7,200 RPM). More ...

'Hard Drive Speed' is a measurement of the speed of the hard-drive, measured in revolutions per minute (RPM).

Higher RPMs means the hard drive is spinning faster, meaning data on the drive can be accessed with less delay and more efficiently.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Transcend StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb has received a Kagoo Score of 73, however the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb scored 81, the Seagate Expansion 3TB scored 82 and the Toshiba Canvio - 1Tb scored 77.

Over Six Years Older

The Transcend StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb is older than the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb by 20 months, older than the ioSafe SoloPRO - 2Tb by four years and older than the Toshiba Canvio - 1Tb by seven years. The Transcend StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb is the same age as the Seagate Expansion 3TB.

Worse Brand

Transcend external hard drives have an average rating of only 75%, whereas Buffalo has an average rating of 91.9%, Seagate has an average rating of 93.9% and Toshiba has an average rating of 81.1%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the StoreJet 25M3 - 1Tb in the UK is £44.33 and in total we found 8 prices for it.
