Elements vs Ultra

Can I know what’s the difference between the WD 1TB Elements Portable USB 3.0 and the Western Digital 1TB My PassPort Ultra USB 3.0? According to the official website, they both have the same specifications.

So what’s the difference and which one would you recommend?1

The Elements is a simple plug and play drive with no software. The Ultra has Smartware, hardware encryption and password protection  if you care to use it. Unless you want the Smartware and password protection I would choose the Elements.
