4 Reasons For for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport

Password Protection

The Western Digital My Passport has a password protection, and so does the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB, whereas the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb 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.

Cheaper by $7

The Western Digital My Passport costs $17 less than the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB, costs $7 less than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB, costs $16.01 less than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and costs $6.96 less than the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb.

Two More Awards

The Western Digital My Passport has received 2 awards from expert review sites, whereas the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB has received no awards, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB has received no awards, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb has received no awards and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb has received no awards.

Better Brand

Western Digital external hard drives have an average rating of 95%, whereas LaCie only has an average rating of 93.4% and Seagate only has an average rating of 93.4%.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport

30g Heavier

The Western Digital My Passport has a weight of 170g, whereas the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB is a 240g external hard drive (70g heavier), the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB and the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb are both 140g external hard drives (30g lighter) and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb is a 190g external hard drive (20g 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.

Vastly Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Western Digital My Passport has a hard drive capacity of 1TB (as do the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb), however the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb is a 2TB external hard drive (1TB 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 does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb), whereas the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB and the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB do. 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 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb scored 89.

Less Retailers

The Western Digital My Passport is only stocked by 5 sellers, whereas the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB is stocked by 7 sellers, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB is stocked by 6 shops, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb is stocked by 11 shops and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb is stocked by 6 sellers. 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.

The cheapest price that we could find for the My Passport in the US is $42.99 and in total we found 5 prices for it.

Better Brand

Western Digital external hard drives have an average rating of 95%, whereas LaCie only has an average rating of 93.4% and Seagate only has an average rating of 93.4%.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb

50g Heavier

The Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb is a 190g external hard drive. That's 50g lighter than the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB (240g), 50g heavier than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB and the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb (140g) and 20g heavier than the Western Digital My Passport (170g). 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.

Vastly Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb is a 1TB external hard drive, and so do the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB and the Western Digital My Passport. That's 1TB smaller than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb (2TB). 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 - 1Tb does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and the Western Digital My Passport), whereas the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB and the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB have 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.

Does Not Support RAID Support

The Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb does not support RAID support, whereas the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and the Western Digital My Passport do. 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 - 1Tb has received a Kagoo Score of 86, however the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB scored 88, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb scored 89 and the Western Digital My Passport scored 88.

$7 More Expensive

The Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb is more expensive than the Western Digital My Passport by $7.

Less Retailers

Only 6 retailers sells the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb, whereas 7 sellers sell the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB and 11 sellers sell the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this external hard drive and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Over Four Years Older

The Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb is older than the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB by three years, older than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB by three years, older than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb by five years and older than the Western Digital My Passport by five years.

The cheapest price that we could find for the My Passport - 1Tb in the US is $49.95 and in total we found 6 prices for it.

1 Reason For for Choosing the LaCie Rugged Mini - 1TB
