5 Reasons For for Choosing the Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 5Tb

Lighter

The Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 5Tb is a 230 external hard drive. That's 720g lighter than the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 8Tb (950g), 20g lighter than the Buffalo MiniStation Safe - 4Tb (250g), 17g lighter than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb (247g) and 100g lighter than the Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 4Tb (330g). 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 P10 Game Drive - 5Tb has a password protection (as do the Buffalo MiniStation Safe - 4Tb and the Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 4Tb), however the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 8Tb and the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb 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 P10 Game Drive - 5Tb has received a Kagoo Score of 90, but the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 8Tb scored 84, the Buffalo MiniStation Safe - 4Tb scored 85, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb scored only 75 and the Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 4Tb scored 87.

Two Years Newer

The Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 5Tb was released 13 months ago, but the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 8Tb was released four years ago, the Buffalo MiniStation Safe - 4Tb was released four years ago and the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb was released three years ago

Better Brand

Western Digital external hard drives have an average rating of 95%, however Buffalo only has an average rating of 85.1% and Seagate only has an average rating of 89.5%.

4 Reasons Against for Choosing the Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 5Tb

Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 5Tb is a 5 external hard drive, and so does the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb. That's 3TB smaller than the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 8Tb (8TB) and 1TB bigger than the Buffalo MiniStation Safe - 4Tb and the Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 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.

£31 More Expensive

The Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 5Tb is more expensive than the Buffalo MiniStation Safe - 4Tb by £8, more expensive than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb by £31 and more expensive than the Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 4Tb by £26.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 8 retailers sells the Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 5Tb, however 9 shops sell the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this external hard drive remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Less Popular

The Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 5Tb is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

The cheapest price that we could find for the P10 Game Drive - 5Tb in the UK is £125.70 and in total we found 8 prices for it.

1 Reason For for Choosing the Buffalo MiniStation Safe - 4Tb

Password Protection

The Buffalo MiniStation Safe - 4Tb has a password protection, and so do the Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 4Tb and the Western Digital P10 Game Drive - 5Tb, but the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 8Tb and the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb 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.
