4 Reasons For for Choosing the Western Digital My Book - 4TB

'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 Book - 4TB has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the LaCie Rugged Mini - 2TB scored 84, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb scored 87 and the Western Digital My Passport X scored 84.

More Shops Are Selling It

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this external hard drive and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

18 Months Newer

The Western Digital My Book - 4TB was released three years later than the LaCie Rugged Mini - 2TB, released three years later than the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb, released three years later than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and released 18 months later than the Western Digital My Passport X

4 Reasons Against for Choosing the Western Digital My Book - 4TB

A heavier hard drive will be bulkier, and more annoying to carry around.

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

The Western Digital My Book - 4TB does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and the Western Digital My Passport X), whereas the LaCie Rugged Mini - 2TB 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.

$67 More Expensive

The Western Digital My Book - 4TB is more expensive than the LaCie Rugged Mini - 2TB by $42, more expensive than the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb by $51 and more expensive than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb by $67.

90g Heavier

The Western Digital My Passport X has a weight of 230, however the LaCie Rugged Mini - 2TB is a 240g external hard drive (10g heavier), the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb is an 860g external hard drive (630g heavier), the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb is a 140g external hard drive (90g lighter) and the Western Digital My Book - 4TB is a 1kg external hard drive (800g 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.

Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Western Digital My Passport X has a hard drive capacity of 2 (as do the LaCie Rugged Mini - 2TB, the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb and the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb), but the Western Digital My Book - 4TB is a 4TB 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.

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

The Western Digital My Passport X does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and the Western Digital My Book - 4TB), however the LaCie Rugged Mini - 2TB 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 Kagoo Score

The Western Digital My Passport X has received a Kagoo Score of 84, but the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb scored 88, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb scored 87 and the Western Digital My Book - 4TB scored 88.

More Expensive by $83

The Western Digital My Passport X is $58 more expensive than the LaCie Rugged Mini - 2TB, $68 more expensive than the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb, $83 more expensive than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and $17 more expensive than the Western Digital My Book - 4TB.

Not As Many Stockists

More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this external hard drive.
Older by Over One Year

The Western Digital My Passport X is 18 months older than the Western Digital My Book - 4TB.

Worse Brand

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

'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.

Vastly Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

Worse Kagoo Score

The LaCie Rugged Mini - 2TB has received a Kagoo Score of 84, however the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb scored 88, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb scored 87 and the Western Digital My Book - 4TB scored 88.
