1 Reason For for Choosing the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb

Better Brand

Western Digital external hard drives have an average rating of 95%, whereas A-DATA only has an average rating of 83%, Seagate only has an average rating of 94.6% and Toshiba only has an average rating of 67.6%.

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

50g Heavier

The Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb is a 190 external hard drive. That's 0.19999999999999g heavier than the A-DATA HD330 - 1Tb (189.8g), 50g heavier than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 1tb (140g), 20g heavier than the Seagate Expansion USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive - 1TB (170g) and 40g lighter than the Toshiba Canvio Basics - 1TB (230g). 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 - 1Tb does not have a Wi-Fi (As do the the A-DATA HD330 - 1Tb and the Toshiba Canvio Basics - 1TB), whereas the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 1tb and the Seagate Expansion USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive - 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 A-DATA HD330 - 1Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 1tb, the Seagate Expansion USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive - 1TB and the Toshiba Canvio Basics - 1TB 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 Expansion USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive - 1TB scored 87.

$10 More Expensive

The Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb is more expensive than the A-DATA HD330 - 1Tb by $5, more expensive than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 1tb by $5, more expensive than the Seagate Expansion USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive - 1TB by $5 and more expensive than the Toshiba Canvio Basics - 1TB by $10.

Less Retailers

Only 5 shops sells the Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb, whereas 6 shops sell the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 1tb and 8 sellers sell the Toshiba Canvio Basics - 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 Six Years Older

The Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb is older than the A-DATA HD330 - 1Tb by six years, older than the Seagate Backup Plus Portable - 1tb by three years, older than the Seagate Expansion USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive - 1TB by three years and older than the Toshiba Canvio Basics - 1TB by six years.

The cheapest price that we could find for the My Passport - 1Tb in the US is $54.99 and in total we found 5 prices for it.
