8 Reasons For for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport

A Lot Lighter

The Western Digital My Passport has a weight of 170, whereas the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb is a 250g external hard drive (80g heavier), the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb and the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb are both 247g external hard drives (77g heavier) and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb is a 230g external hard drive (60g heavier). 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.

Password Protection

The Western Digital My Passport has a password protection, and so does the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb, whereas the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb do not. 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Western Digital My Passport has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb scored 85, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb scored 83, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb scored 85 and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb scored 85.

Cheaper by £58

The Western Digital My Passport costs £125.26 less than the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb, costs £78.30 less than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb, costs £89.49 less than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb and costs £58.10 less than the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb.

More Shops Are Selling It

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

Two More Awards

The Western Digital My Passport has received 2 awards from expert review sites, whereas the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb has received no awards, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb has received no awards, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb has received no awards and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb has received no awards.

Better User Reviews

The Western Digital My Passport has an average user review score of 91% based on 93 reviews, however the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb has an average rating of 85% (based on 12 reviews).

Better Brand

Western Digital external hard drives have an average rating of 95%, whereas Buffalo only has an average rating of 92.2% and Seagate only has an average rating of 94.6%.

3 Reasons Against for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport

Vastly Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Western Digital My Passport has a hard drive capacity of 1, however the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb and the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb are both 4TB external hard drives (3TB bigger), the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb is a 5TB external hard drive (4TB bigger) and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb is a 2TB external hard drive (1TB bigger). 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.

Older by 11 Months

The Western Digital My Passport is seven months older than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb, seven months older than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb and 11 months older than the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb.
