4 Reasons For for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport - 2TB

Password Protection

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB has a password protection (as does the Buffalo HDPNF10U3BREU), however the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB has received a Kagoo Score of 89, but the Buffalo HDPNF10U3BREU scored 85, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb scored 88 and the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb scored 85.

£8 Cheaper

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB costs £43.99, whereas the Buffalo HDPNF10U3BREU is £52.47, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb is £84.98, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb is £58.47 and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb is £56.76.

Better Brand

Western Digital external hard drives have an average rating of 95%, however Buffalo only has an average rating of 91.9% and Seagate only has an average rating of 93.9%.

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport - 2TB

31% Heavier

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB is a 250 external hard drive. That's 80g heavier than the Buffalo HDPNF10U3BREU (170g), 3g heavier than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb (247g), 110g heavier than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb (140g) and 20g heavier than the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb (230g). 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.

Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB is a 2 external hard drive, and so do the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb. That's 1TB bigger than the Buffalo HDPNF10U3BREU (1TB) and 2TB smaller than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb (4TB). 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 Support RAID Support

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB does not support RAID support, however the Buffalo HDPNF10U3BREU, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb do. More ...

RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is a system to allow multiple hard drives to link together as a single unit, pooling their capacity to create a single large drive.

A RAID array is helpful for storing very large amounts of data and to allow for additional protection for the data stored on it - if one of the drives fails, the data on the other drives will remain safe.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 10 stores sells the Western Digital My Passport - 2TB, however 14 stores sell the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb and 16 retailers sell the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this external hard drive remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Four Months Older

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB is older than the Buffalo HDPNF10U3BREU by four months.

Less Popular

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

The cheapest price that we could find for the My Passport - 2TB in the UK is £43.99 and in total we found 10 prices for it.
