2 Reasons For for Choosing the Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb

USB Powered

The Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb is USB powered, and so are the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB, the Seagate Backup Plus and the Western Digital My Passport - 2TB, but the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb is not. More ...

Whether the hard drive is powered by USB or not.

Better Brand

Seagate external hard drives have an average rating of 95%, whereas LaCie only has an average rating of 91.6% and Western Digital only has an average rating of 92.7%.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb

620g Heavier

The Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb has a weight of 860g (as does the Seagate Backup Plus), whereas the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB is a 240g external hard drive (620g lighter), the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb is a 1.1kg external hard drive (190g heavier) and the Western Digital My Passport - 2TB is a 250g external hard drive (610g lighter). More ...

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

Vastly Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb has a hard drive capacity of 5GB, however the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB is a 1TB external hard drive (4TB smaller), the Seagate Backup Plus is a 4TB external hard drive (1TB smaller), the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb is a 6TB external hard drive (1TB bigger) and the Western Digital My Passport - 2TB is a 2TB external hard drive (3TB smaller). More ...

A bigger hard drive capacity means that it can hold more files and data at once.

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

The Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the Seagate Backup Plus, the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb and the Western Digital My Passport - 2TB), whereas the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB 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 Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb has received a Kagoo Score of 87, however the Seagate Backup Plus scored 88.

More Expensive by $71

The Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb is $71 more expensive than the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB, $21 more expensive than the Seagate Backup Plus and $56 more expensive than the Western Digital My Passport - 2TB.

Less Retailers

More ...

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

The Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb is 13 months older than the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb and two years older than the Western Digital My Passport - 2TB. The Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb is the same age as the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB and the Seagate Backup Plus.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Backup Plus - 5Tb in the US is $150.82 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport - 2TB

USB Powered

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB is USB powered, and so are the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB, the Seagate Backup Plus and the Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb, however the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb is not. More ...

Whether the hard drive is powered by USB or not.

Password Protection

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB has a password protection, and so do the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB and the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb, but the Seagate Backup Plus and the Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb 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.

More Shops Are Selling It

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

Newer by 15 Months

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB is two years newer than the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB, two years newer than the Seagate Backup Plus, two years newer than the Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb and 15 months newer than the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport - 2TB

10g Heavier

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB has a weight of 250g, but the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB is a 240g external hard drive (10g lighter), the Seagate Backup Plus and the Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb are both 860g external hard drives (610g heavier) and the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb is a 1.1kg 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.

4TB Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB has a hard drive capacity of 2GB, whereas the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB is a 1TB external hard drive (1TB smaller), the Seagate Backup Plus is a 4TB external hard drive (2TB bigger), the Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb is a 5TB external hard drive (3TB bigger) and the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb is a 6TB external hard drive (4TB 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 - 2TB does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the Seagate Backup Plus, the Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb and the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb), but the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB 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.

Does Not Support RAID Support

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB does not support RAID support, but the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB, the Seagate Backup Plus, the Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb and the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb support this feature. More ...

RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is a system to allow multiple hard drives to link together as a single unit, pooling their capacity to create a single large drive.

A RAID array is helpful for storing very large amounts of data and to allow for additional protection for the data stored on it - if one of the drives fails, the data on the other drives will remain safe.

Vastly Slower Data Transfer Rate

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB is a 5 Mbit/s data transfer rate external hard drive, and so does the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB. That's 4,840 Mbit/s faster than the Seagate Backup Plus (160 Mbit/s) and 5,000 Mbit/s slower than the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb (10,000 Mbit/s). 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB has received a Kagoo Score of 82, whereas the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB scored 83, the Seagate Backup Plus scored 88, the Seagate Backup Plus - 5Tb scored 87 and the Western Digital My Book - 6Tb scored 83.

More Expensive by $15

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB is $15 more expensive than the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB.

Worse Brand

Western Digital external hard drives have an average rating of only 92.7%, but Seagate has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the My Passport - 2TB in the US is $94.99 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.
