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

Faster Read Speed

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB is a 400MB/s read speed external hard drive. That's 270MB/s faster than the LaCie Rugged - 1Tb (130MB/s). More ...

'Read Speed' is a measurement of how quickly the hard drive can read data stored on its drive. It is measured in meg per second (MB/s).

A higher read speed means the data on the drive can be accessed with less delay and more efficiently.

Password Protection

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB has a password protection, and so do the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB, the LaCie Rugged - 1Tb and the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb, however the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb does 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 shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this external hard drive.

Newer by 19 Months

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB was released three years ago, but the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB was released five years ago, the LaCie Rugged - 1Tb was released four years ago, the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb was released six years ago and the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb was released seven years ago

Better Brand

Western Digital external hard drives have an average rating of 95%, however LaCie only has an average rating of 91.6% and Seagate only has an average rating of 94.9%.

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

A Lot Heavier

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB has a weight of 250g, however the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB is a 240g external hard drive (10g lighter), the LaCie Rugged - 1Tb is a 100g external hard drive (150g lighter), the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb is a 140g external hard drive (110g lighter) and the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb is a 126g external hard drive (124g lighter). 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.

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the LaCie Rugged - 1Tb, the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb and the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb), however 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, however the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB, the LaCie Rugged - 1Tb, the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb and the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB has received a Kagoo Score of 82, but the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb scored 85 and the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb scored 88.

More Expensive by $27

The Western Digital My Passport - 2TB is $18 more expensive than the LaCie Expansion Rugged Mini - 1TB, $13 more expensive than the LaCie Rugged - 1Tb and $27 more expensive than the Seagate Backup Plus - 2Tb.

The cheapest price that we could find for the My Passport - 2TB in the US is $94.99 and in total we found 3 prices for it.
