Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 87?

reviews indicate that it has good expert reviews and superb user reviews with 96% of buyers recommending this external hard drive to others. This external hard drive has received three awards including an "Editor's Choice" award from Eteknix.com plus one other site and a "Recommended" award from Alphr.com.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer external harddisks with better features are available. However this Western Digital external hard drive has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
The My Passport has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Very light
Faster than average data transfer rate
Express yourself
Easy to use
Very small hard drive capacity
Does not have a Wi-Fi

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each external hard drive by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the external hard drive is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec external hard drives come to market, the older external hard drives will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
