2 Reasons For for Choosing the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 500Gb

Better Kagoo Score

The Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 500Gb has received a Kagoo Score of 83, however the Freecom Classic 3.0 - 500Gb scored 78, the Seagate STEA500400 scored 81 and the Toshiba Canvio Basics - 500Gb scored 75.

Better Brand

Western Digital external hard drives have an average rating of 95%, whereas Freecom only has an average rating of 76.9%, iStorage only has an average rating of 90.2%, Seagate only has an average rating of 92.6% and Toshiba only has an average rating of 80.6%.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 500Gb

29% Heavier

The Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 500Gb is a 230g external hard drive, and so does the Toshiba Canvio Basics - 500Gb. That's 90g heavier than the Freecom Classic 3.0 - 500Gb (140g), 14g heavier than the iStorage diskAshur 2 - 500Gb (216g) and 60g heavier than the Seagate STEA500400 (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.

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

The Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 500Gb does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the iStorage diskAshur 2 - 500Gb and the Toshiba Canvio Basics - 500Gb), whereas the Freecom Classic 3.0 - 500Gb and the Seagate STEA500400 have 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.

Significantly Slower Maximum Data Transfer Rate

The Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 500Gb is a 500 Mbit/s max data transfer rate external hard drive, whereas the Freecom Classic 3.0 - 500Gb, the iStorage diskAshur 2 - 500Gb and the Toshiba Canvio Basics - 500Gb are all 5,000 Mbit/s max data transfer rate external hard drives (4,500 Mbit/s faster). More ...

'Data Transfer Rate' indicates how fast data can be transferred to/from the external hard drive.

Faster data transfer speeds means that you will be able to transfer larger files to/from the hard drive faster.

4,500 Mbit/s Slower Data Transfer Rate

The Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 500Gb has a data transfer rate of 500 Mbit/s, but the Freecom Classic 3.0 - 500Gb, the iStorage diskAshur 2 - 500Gb and the Toshiba Canvio Basics - 500Gb are all 5,000 Mbit/s data transfer rate external hard drives (4,500 Mbit/s faster) and the Seagate STEA500400 is a 5 Mbit/s data transfer rate external hard drive (495 Mbit/s slower). More ...

'Data Transfer Rate' indicates how fast data can be transferred to/from the external hard drive.

Faster data transfer speeds means that you will be able to transfer larger files to/from the hard drive faster.

£7 More Expensive

The Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 500Gb is more expensive than the Toshiba Canvio Basics - 500Gb by £7.

Less Retailers

Only 5 shops sells the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 500Gb, whereas 6 stores sell the iStorage diskAshur 2 - 500Gb and 12 shops sell the Toshiba Canvio Basics - 500Gb. More ...

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

The Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 500Gb is older than the iStorage diskAshur 2 - 500Gb by one month and older than the Seagate STEA500400 by three months.
