These are external slim portable HDD. How do they pack a 2TB HDD into such a small case? Does that affect heat build-up in a negative way? How do these slim portables compare for reliability to external HDD in larger cases?

They probably use 2.5" laptop drives. HDD doesn't heat up much in normal use. I would not expect superb longevity.

Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB External Hard Drive Portable HDD – Silver USB 3.0 for PC Laptop.

Did you notice that the 4TB and 5TB versions are thicker?
