What customers say about "Key Specs"
Western Digital My Passport Wireless 1TB Portable External Hard Drive
  • I like this product for its capacity and being wireless.
  • This unit performed flawlessly. This drive works well and has lot of space.
  • With 1TB capacity it is capable to carry all my music, pictures, videos. Installation is easy and the W-LAN is stable.
  • There are huge capacity, but loading the music/movies is very fast with the USB 3.0 function.
  • The downside is that it's a little big/heavy for its capacity and it doesn't automatically back up files.
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.

What customers say about "Features"
Western Digital My Passport Wireless 1TB Portable External Hard Drive
  • It has an SD card "plug" which I leave in just for a little extra security in terms of not getting debris inside it.
  • It automatically copied only the new photos. We shoot in JPEG and RAW at the same time. It copied both images.
  • Once the files are copied to the Passport, you can review them on your IPad at full screen with their App. Love this device.
  • Slow WiFi Performance and SD Card Copies. Disappointed with this device.
  • I connected to my computer via wireless and changed the network name and added a password. After that I could never connect via my Android.
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.
