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

24% Heavier

The Western Digital My Passport - 1Tb has a weight of 190, however the Western Digital My Passport - 2TB is a 250g external hard drive (60g heavier), the Western Digital My Passport Ultra - 1Tb is a 160g external hard drive (30g lighter), the Western Digital My Passport Ultra - 2Tb is a 230g external hard drive (40g heavier) and the Western Digital WD Elements Portable - 1Tb is a 130g external hard drive (60g lighter).

A heavier hard drive will be bulkier, and more annoying to carry around.

Smaller Hard Drive Capacity
