7 Reasons For for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport for Mac - 2Tb

Vastly Lighter

The Western Digital My Passport for Mac - 2Tb has a weight of 120g, however the Buffalo DriveStation - 2Tb is a 1kg external hard drive (880g heavier), the Seagate Backup Plus is an 860g external hard drive (740g heavier), the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 500GB is a 150g external hard drive (30g heavier) and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb is a 170g external hard drive (50g heavier). 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 for Mac - 2Tb has a password protection, and so does the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb, however the Buffalo DriveStation - 2Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus and the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 500GB do not. 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.

Fingerprint Reader

The Western Digital My Passport for Mac - 2Tb has a fingerprint reader, but the Buffalo DriveStation - 2Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 500GB and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb do not have this feature. More ...

'Fingerprint Reader' indicates whether the hard drive has a fingerprint reader as a security measure against unauthorised entry.

Fingerprint readers are rare and expensive, but provide extremely strong security against unwanted access to the data on the drive - it's much harder to fool a fingerprint reader than it is to decipher a password.

Better Kagoo Score

The Western Digital My Passport for Mac - 2Tb has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the Buffalo DriveStation - 2Tb scored 79, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 500GB scored 82 and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb scored 82.

Cheaper by $5

The Western Digital My Passport for Mac - 2Tb costs $74.99, whereas the Buffalo DriveStation - 2Tb is $149.99, the Seagate Backup Plus is $132.48, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 500GB is $82.99 and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb is $79.99.

Newer by Two Years

The Western Digital My Passport for Mac - 2Tb was released four years ago, but the Buffalo DriveStation - 2Tb was released nine years ago, the Seagate Backup Plus was released six years ago, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 500GB was released nine years ago and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb was released 10 years ago

Better Brand

Western Digital external hard drives have an average rating of 95%, however Buffalo only has an average rating of 87.2% and Seagate only has an average rating of 92.5%.

3 Reasons Against for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport for Mac - 2Tb

Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Western Digital My Passport for Mac - 2Tb has a hard drive capacity of 2GB (as does the Buffalo DriveStation - 2Tb), but the Seagate Backup Plus is a 4TB external hard drive (2TB bigger), the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 500GB is a 500GB external hard drive (1.5TB smaller) and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb is a 1TB external hard drive (1TB smaller). 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 for Mac - 2Tb does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the Buffalo DriveStation - 2Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb), however the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 500GB 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.

Not As Many Stockists

The Western Digital My Passport for Mac - 2Tb is only stocked by 1 store, however the Buffalo DriveStation - 2Tb is stocked by 2 shops, the Seagate Backup Plus is stocked by 2 shops and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb is stocked by 2 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this external hard drive.

The cheapest price that we could find for the My Passport for Mac - 2Tb in the US is $74.99 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
