4 Reasons For for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport Ultra - 1Tb

USB Powered

The Western Digital My Passport Ultra - 1Tb is USB powered, and so are the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb, the Seagate STEA500400 and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb, however the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb is not. More ...

Whether the hard drive is powered by USB or not.

Password Protection

The Western Digital My Passport Ultra - 1Tb has a password protection, but the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb, the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb, the Seagate STEA500400 and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Western Digital My Passport Ultra - 1Tb has received a Kagoo Score of 89, whereas the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb scored 87, the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb scored 87, the Seagate STEA500400 scored 88 and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb scored 85.

Better Brand

Western Digital external hard drives have an average rating of 95%, but Buffalo only has an average rating of 83.6% and Seagate only has an average rating of 94.1%.

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

Heavier

The Western Digital My Passport Ultra - 1Tb has a weight of 160, but the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb is a 1kg external hard drive (840g heavier), the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb is a 140g external hard drive (20g lighter), the Seagate STEA500400 is a 170g external hard drive (10g heavier) and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb is a 230g external hard drive (70g 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.

1TB Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Western Digital My Passport Ultra - 1Tb has a hard drive capacity of 1, whereas the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb, the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb are all 2TB external hard drives (1TB bigger) and the Seagate STEA500400 is a 500GB external hard drive (500GB 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 Ultra - 1Tb does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the Buffalo DriveStation Velocity - 2Tb, the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb), but the Seagate STEA500400 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.

More Expensive by $4

The Western Digital My Passport Ultra - 1Tb is $4 more expensive than the Seagate STEA500400.

Fewer Sellers

The Western Digital My Passport Ultra - 1Tb is only stocked by 6 shops, but the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb is stocked by 10 stores. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
Older by Six Months

The Western Digital My Passport Ultra - 1Tb is one month older than the Seagate STEA500400 and six months older than the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 2Tb.

The cheapest price that we could find for the My Passport Ultra - 1Tb in the US is $54.99 and in total we found 6 prices for it.
