4 Reasons Against for Choosing the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb

Heavier

The Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb has a weight of 247g, but the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb is a 250g external hard drive (3g heavier), the LaCie d2 - 4Tb is a 1.3kg external hard drive (1.1kg heavier), the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN is a 1.1kg external hard drive (803g heavier) and the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb is a 170g external hard drive (77g lighter). 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.

2TB Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb has a hard drive capacity of 4TB (as do the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb, the LaCie d2 - 4Tb and the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb), whereas the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN is a 6TB external hard drive (2TB 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.

The Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb, the LaCie d2 - 4Tb and the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb), but the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN does. 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.

Worse Brand

Seagate external hard drives have an average rating of only 93.2%, but Western Digital has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb in the UK is £84.98 and in total we found 14 prices for it.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb

Lighter

The Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb is a 170g external hard drive. That's 80g lighter than the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb (250g), 1.1kg lighter than the LaCie d2 - 4Tb (1.3kg), 77g lighter than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb (247g) and 880g lighter than the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN (1.1kg). 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 - 4Tb has a password protection (as do the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb, the LaCie d2 - 4Tb and the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN), whereas the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb does 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 - 4Tb has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb scored 86, the LaCie d2 - 4Tb scored 81 and the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN scored 87.

Better Brand

Western Digital external hard drives have an average rating of 95%, whereas Buffalo only has an average rating of 91.7%, LaCie only has an average rating of 92.1%, Seagate only has an average rating of 93.2% and WD only has an average rating of 77.5%.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb

Vastly Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb is a 4TB external hard drive, and so do the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb, the LaCie d2 - 4Tb and the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb. That's 2TB smaller than the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN (6TB). 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 Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb, the LaCie d2 - 4Tb and the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb), whereas the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN 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.

Less Retailers

Only 8 shops sells the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb, whereas 14 shops sell the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb. More ...

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

The Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb is older than the LaCie d2 - 4Tb by four months and older than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb by four months.

Less Popular

The Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

The cheapest price that we could find for the My Passport - 4Tb in the UK is £87.00 and in total we found 8 prices for it.

2 Reasons For for Choosing the LaCie D2 - 4Tb

Password Protection

The LaCie d2 - 4Tb has a password protection (as do the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb, the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN and the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb), however the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb does 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.

Four Months Newer

The LaCie d2 - 4Tb was released two years ago, but the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb was released three years ago, the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN was released three years ago and the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb was released three years ago

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the LaCie D2 - 4Tb

Vastly Heavier

The LaCie d2 - 4Tb is a 1.3kg external hard drive. That's 1.1kg heavier than the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb (250g), 1.1kg heavier than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb (247g), 250g heavier than the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN (1.1kg) and 1.1kg heavier than the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb (170g). 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 LaCie d2 - 4Tb is a 4TB external hard drive, and so do the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb and the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb. That's 2TB smaller than the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN (6TB). 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 LaCie d2 - 4Tb does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb and the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb), however the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The LaCie d2 - 4Tb has received a Kagoo Score of 81, but the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb scored 86, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb scored 88, the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN scored 87 and the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb scored 88.

£76 More Expensive

The LaCie d2 - 4Tb is more expensive than the Buffalo HD-PNFU3 - 4Tb by £46, more expensive than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb by £76, more expensive than the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN by £53 and more expensive than the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb by £74.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 retailer sell the LaCie d2 - 4Tb, however 14 stores sell the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 4Tb, 2 retailers sell the WD WDBBGB0060HBK-EESN and 8 sellers sell the Western Digital My Passport - 4Tb. 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.
Worse Brand

LaCie external hard drives have an average rating of only 92.1%, however Seagate has an average rating of 93.2% and Western Digital has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the d2 - 4Tb in the UK is £161.46 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
