WD stopped making 5TB red drives a long time ago. so no, you will NOT find red drives in these.

one is USB-powered and the other requires an external power source. generally speaking, if you want to be able to move your hard drive around to different computers or between work and home etc...go with the portable USB powered one.

if you just want something that will sit on your desk and won't be moved around, go for the desktop one.

you said besides capacity but that is a driver for some. for the same $99 you can get both on sale for...the portable one you get 4TB and the desktop one you get 5TB. so for someone who just needs the most capacity for the dollar, desktop is the way to go

so it really depends on your needs. personally what i do is i have (2) portable ones that i keep movies and tv shows on. that's so i can bring them with me on business trips, vacations, etc. then i have a desktop one that sits at the back of my desk behind the monitor stand, and that's for backing up my entire computer. if you want to keep movies and such on them but never see yourself bringing them with you anywhere, then you might as well get the large storage for the same $99

Which is better? WD Elements Portable or WD Elements Desktop? Besides the capacity.

I was looking into buying 1 but the reviews are holding me back. It seems they have a history of failing
