What customers say about "Key Specs"
Seagate Wireless Plus 1TB Portable Hard Drive with Built-in WiFi
  • Very good looking drive, strong, capacious and well built. It's as tall as an iPhone 5S, but about 50% wider.
  • So far I have had no real issues with this unit. Full of space and high speed.
  • Massive Amount of Storage Space. Highly recommend.
  • One of the biggest strengths of this reasonably small portable hard drive is that it has a gargantuan amount of space.
  • It's a very nice looking item and serves its basic purpose as an external hard drive. It transfers files quickly and has plenty of space.
Western Digital My Passport Wireless Pro Portable Hard Drive
  • I do like the compact size of the device and the fact that i can use this as wireless storage for my devices.
  • Even though it is a little heavier than I expected, its compact size fits neatly in the camera bag that I carry for those outings and provides a huge amount of immediate photo storage.
  • Overall this is an amazing idea for a solution for traveling photographers.
  • It’s thin. Not as thin as typical portable hard drives, but with the wireless function and auto backup options - it’s worth the size.
  • Would like to see SSD and more compact design in the future.

What customers say about "Features"
Seagate Wireless Plus 1TB Portable Hard Drive with Built-in WiFi
  • Loading files is drag and drop simple. This is great for time saving.
  • In remote environments you can connect your tablet, phone or computer to the device directly.
  • You can connect the device to an existing wifi connection and have access to all of your files in the device while maintaining internet connectivity.
  • The idea of a drive I could use while being crammed on a plane wirelessly was ideal.
  • The official Seagate Media App is awful. It's a nightmare to use if you have a large media collection.
Western Digital My Passport Wireless Pro Portable Hard Drive
  • If you hate wires and shoot a lot of videos on the go, are an avid traveler or a photographer, this will be your savior when your card runs out of space or you want to view your footage but your camera is out of juice.
  • This a fantastic portable drive. Allows to back-up from camera on the field.
  • I often travel to obscure and remote places overseas with no or limited wi-fi.
  • The drive was bought so that I could backup my landscape and wildlife photographs daily during my trips (multiple days for each trip).
  • My MacBook does not recognize it, or if it does, it takes hours to transfer a few files.
