Western Digital WDBUZG0010BBK 1 TB HDD

Pros:

– Quite compact. The size is smaller as compared to all others 1TB HDD. Fits into side pockets of your jeans.

– Price is lesser than other 1TB HDDs of non-WD brands.

– 3 years warranty and one of my friend using it earlier got it replaced when it malfunctioned.

Cons: –

-The finish of the upper casing is such that it may get scratches on frequent usage.

– Has sharp edges and thus may develop dents.

#5. Western Digital My Passport Ultra -Rs.4,454

Western Digital My Passport Ultra

Review by-Sambit (Snapdeal)

PROs:-

-Very sleek design with very good finish and very ULTRA LIGHT WEIGHT when compared to WD My passport as i own the previous version that is my passport.

-The box is excellently packed with a USB 3.0/2.0 wire & a very nice and soft pouch is given for the hard disk protection and user manuals and the main hard disk itself and the bundled software provided in the drive itself.

-It has been given nice security password protection and encryption also and AUTO CLOUD BACK-UP which is an added advantage.

-The read and write speed are also very good for my USB 2.0 i got 50mbps speed and for USB 3.0 i got 105mbps speed.It has given a nice performance for me.

-One important thing is you must register your product online for warranty applicability. -Very cool… and does not get heated up after hours of usage also… and very calm also.

-Some people were saying that their hard disk was vibrating but their is no such issue at all…. it is very cool and calm going.. also..!!

-The LED Indicator is also good with a nice LED.

CONs:

-There are ‘NO CONS’ at all to be shown in here…!!!

– I finally would like to say that GO FOR IT GUYS… WITHOUT ANY DOUBT..!! do not go by the false reviews…!!! it is a great product…!!

-It is just common sense to know that the WD Passport Ultra would be damn sure much advanced version than that of WD MyPassport older versions.

#6. Sony HD-SL1 1 TB External Power Source Hard Drive-Rs.4859

Sony HD-SL1 1 TB External Power Source Hard Drive

Review by- Sambeet  Mishra(Flipkart)

PROs:
-Brand Name [ A brand company always tries to make good cum efficient products to keep its brand name, Sony has recently joined the HD- manufacturing category]
-Gives a software that helps to increase transfer speed [ tested only on my usb 2.0]
-Gets less heated [ may be due to the Aluminium Unibody, it absobs & disipates the heat in faster rate than other materials ]
-Small [2.5 inch] , sturdy, non-dust friendly, A definite 7 gentle look [ not fancy]
-Don’t produce very illuminating light [ it hurts eyes at night, at dark ]
-3 yrs warrenty, Sony is booming in Mobile now-a-days
-Cord is longer than other HD-manufacturers
CONs:
-No back up provision [ i guess there are pretty much software out there for free to help with this]
My Recomendation : if you need it for real use GO FOR IT!!! if you want to buy one for casual use – go for others.
