    Question WD External HDD: Elements vs Passport

    What's the difference between WD My Passport and WD Elements?

    I checked the WD site but could not make out any, even the sizes do not differ much.
    Links to WD site: My Passport , WD Elements

    Also on flipkart there's a gap of rs 600 for the 1TB models:
    WD My Passport WD My Passport 1 TB USB 3.0 External Hard Disk - WD: Flipkart.com
    WD Elements WD Elements SE 1 TB USB 3.0 Hard Drive (Black) - WD: Flipkart.com

    It seems to me Elements is the older brand. Is that all?
    Can anyone clear it up for me?

    Hi! I too have a passport ... 500 GB though ... which i got in 2011. Just wanted to know if i could save 600 bucks IF the elements are equal to the passports range.

    Yes, the Seagate Backup Plus has faster read/write speeds.

    Yes, Elements is older. And also has slower read/write speeds. Please go for the latest. I suggest Seagate backup Plus.

    I'm using Seagate Backup Plus 1TB from months. It performs great and worth every penny. I bought it for 4.4k from infibeam deal.

    I was also going to suggest this one before I saw your post.

    Heyy quagmire! what details you want? It's simply a USB 3.0 HDD that can also work in an apple thunderbolt port with an adapter.
