Difference between Seagate STEA4000400 and STGD4000400

I'm looking to buy a 4TB external storage solution for my PS4. I've come across these two Seagate external USB 3 drives, on Amazon, and can't decide which to go for:

The STEA model is £10 cheaper than the STGD model - a fairly significant 10% saving.

Any idea why these are priced differently, other than the fact the STGD is the "newer" model? Is it worth the extra £10?

Or, is the WD Passport a better option?

I would build my own from an external enclosure and a known-good quality drive.

I should have thought of that. Could have gone 6 or 8TB 3.5" drive in a caddy! As it is, I went for the WD Passport and it's working great!

TL;DR: Best choice is WD My Passport 4TB due to being the newest of the three choices and comes with a 3 year manufacturer's warranty vs just a 2 year warranty with the Seagate models.
