7 Reasons For for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport

32% Lighter

The Western Digital My Passport is a 170g external hard drive, and so does the Buffalo HDPNF10U3BREU. That's 77g lighter than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb and the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb (247g) and 60g lighter than the Western Digital My Passport X (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.

Password Protection

The Western Digital My Passport has a password protection (as does the Buffalo HDPNF10U3BREU), however the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb and the Western Digital My Passport X do not have this feature. More ...

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 90, but the Buffalo HDPNF10U3BREU scored 89, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb scored 89, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb scored 88 and the Western Digital My Passport X scored 89.

That's 3TB smaller than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb (4TB), 4TB smaller than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 5Tb (5TB) and 1TB smaller than the Western Digital My Passport X (2TB). 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.
