Any reason why you want to pay the same for less capacity?

For those curious and/or counting cost per TB
  • Target $65/3TB = $21.67 per TB
  • Amazon $109/5TB = $21.80 per TB
  • The Passport 5TB was on sale on Amazon a few days ago for $99, or $20/TB.

So if you don't need or want to pay for the extra capacity, but enjoy the lower cost per TB that comes with larger drives, this is a pretty good deal for a 3TB drive.

They both have the same drives in them. The only difference is the Passport has onboard encryption, which actually slows the drive down. Unless you need the encryption (most don't), the elements is the better deal.

Western digital has a severe flaw in these drives. Randomly contents in an entire directory disappear. If you put any other files in there it disappears too. If you google Western digital and "shame on you" you will see hundreds of complaints. Something is wrong with their controllers on these external drives. Toshiba and other brands don't have this problem. Only happens on their external hard drives.
I've had issues with western digital almost 15 years ago. Haven't touched another one since. So far no issues with Seagate but I hardly run them. Once every few months to a year or so. I have 4 externals that still work.

It seems like western digital still has issues

I've read that the Passport line is more reliable than the Elements line (both being good but Passport being better). It also contains security software that the Elements line does not (for those that want it).

I don't need a whole lot of capacity. Just want something to back up data. Meaning I'd pay a little more for better quality and less quantity if need be.

i didn't know this was a thing with SSDs...but i have noticed random photos or videos i KNOW i saved from vacations and family stuff....just gone. Plus tv series episodes. I just thought my gf accidentally deleted stuff because she doesn't know how to work the computer. Interesting.
