Which External HDD to get?

Looking to get a normal HDD. Very difficult to decide between

1) Seagate Backup Plus Slim
2) WD My Passport
3) Toshiba Canvio II
4) Transcend 25MC (C-USB)

Anyone has experiences to share with the above mentioned drives?

Not much variety nowadays as in the end not as many hdd makers as there used to be.

Might as well go with any brand that offers free data recovery if the hdd fails.

All between 85-89$range. I think I go with wd since it has 3yrs warranty and the model is newest among the lot

Amazon warranty - anything ship back.

Use UOBSG code when checking out for $10 off. Free Shipping to SG also.

I got the WD 4TB at 106 after discount. Worth it as it converts to 155?

WD my passport ultra 2TB @$119 (Maroon color only). They are clearing stock as this was old design. Function-wise is the same as the newer model ($139).
