External Hard Drive often tend to fail unexpectedly. Afaik
, major reason is because its removable, portable and 2.5" HDD which is not strong as 3.5" HDDs. At present Seagate and WD provides 3 years warranty for all their external hdds which is a good thing but your data is not safe on them unless you make multiple copies.
Seagate and WD are top HDD manufactures and we cannot say either one is good or bad. I have come across plenty of hdds (Internal and external) and yet I have no conclusion on which brand is good. I personally like WD but Seagate is also my second option.
1. WD My Passport Ultra 1TB
costs Rs. 3,981 in Ebay India.
2. Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB
costs Rs. 4,070 in Ebay India.
3. WD Elements 1TB
costs Rs. 3,799 in Ebay India.
As per my search, above prices are cheaper then other sites. Sorted as per my liking. Also I think 5% discount when paid using payumoney for ebay purchases is still running.
