5 Reasons For for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport

Password Protection

The Western Digital My Passport has a password protection, whereas the Seagate Backup Plus Portable Slim - 1TB, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB, the Silicon Power Armor A85 - 1Tb and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb do not have this feature. 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 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Seagate Backup Plus Portable Slim - 1TB scored 84, the Silicon Power Armor A85 - 1Tb scored 80 and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb scored 86.

$4 Cheaper

The Western Digital My Passport costs $5 less than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB, costs $4.34 less than the Silicon Power Armor A85 - 1Tb and costs $6.96 less than the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb.

Two More Awards

The Western Digital My Passport has received 2 awards, whereas the Seagate Backup Plus Portable Slim - 1TB has received no awards, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB has received no awards, the Silicon Power Armor A85 - 1Tb 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 Seagate only has an average rating of 93.4% and Silicon Power only has an average rating of 78.3%.

4 Reasons Against for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport

30g Heavier

The Western Digital My Passport is a 170g external hard drive. That's 11g heavier than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable Slim - 1TB (159g), 30g heavier than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB (140g), 238g lighter than the Silicon Power Armor A85 - 1Tb (408g) and 20g lighter than the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb (190g). 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 does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the Silicon Power Armor A85 - 1Tb and the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb), whereas the Seagate Backup Plus Portable Slim - 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.

Less Retailers

Only 5 stores sells the Western Digital My Passport, whereas 9 retailers sell the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB and 6 stores sell the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb. 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 One Year Older

The Western Digital My Passport is older than the Silicon Power Armor A85 - 1Tb by 17 months.

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.
