'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.

4,500 Mbit/s Slower Data Transfer Rate

The Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 500Gb has a data transfer rate of 500, whereas 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). More ...
