Manufacturer: Western Digital (WD). Portable drive, with 2 TB of storage space. It has got USB 3.0 connectivity, with automatic and cloud backup. It has also got password protection and hardware encryption features. Weighing just 8 ounces, it has got a 3-year limited warranty. It is a fast drive with USB 3.0 connection speed (great for transferring large media files), is black in color and looks pretty sleek. Included USB cable is 15” in length which is long enough for some extra reach. The added soft pouch is a good addition (keeps dust and dirt out and is easy to carry).
Manufacturer: Seagate. It is a Desktop-style drive, that is, it requires an external power adaptor, with 2TB storage capacity. Seagate Expansion 2TB has USB 3.0 connectivity and is heavy, weighing at around 2.1 pounds. It is a good option as a backup drive and if you are not frequently moving, as it requires an external power source. It is large enough and the file transfer speeds are fast with USB 3.0 connectivity. The drive runs hot with holes drilled on top of the back panel as vent, not a very effective way of cooling.
Manufacturer: Seagate. Portable drive, storage capacity: 2 TB. It is has got USB 3.0 connectivity. It is very compact and easy to carry, weighing just 5.9 ounces. It is pretty fast with USB 3.0 connection speed, is quiet and is backward compatible with USB 2.0. Design and build of the drive is, it is made of matte plastic, with a USB port in the back and the blue power activity light is located in the back top portion of the drive. The provided USB cable is short, so it is easier to connect to a laptop rather than a desktop.
Overall, it again depends on portability or moving requirements. If you want to access your drive on the move you are better off with a portable drive, on the other hand if you are going to use it just as a backup, leaving it sitting on your desk most of the time, you can opt for a Desktop-styled drive.
