Finally the gadget we've all been waiting for! This is an external drive specifically designed for PS4. This works with PS4, PS4 slim, and PS4 Pro. You get a total of 2TB (1.84 TB in reality) that will help you store your games and liberate space in your console.When I bought my PS4 slim, the first thing I did was to actually change the hard drive, from 512MB to 1TB. I used a Seagate also, and I was happy with it, BUT this is way better. Why?First, because this is a plug a USB play device (cable IS included). No need to open your console and install nothing, no need to install drivers, software, etc. This is the easiest possible way to expand your storage.Second, because this is cheaper than the 1TB drive I installed less than 12 months ago. For $80 you get here 2TB. I got 1TB for about $110.Third, by downloading and storing your games on this external storage drive, you can take them with you wherever you go. So if you want to go to a friends' house and bring your games, just take this drive. AND this drive is SUPER SMALL, it really fits in your pocket. And the design is super because it comes with a blue strip (see Amazon pic) that matches the Playstation environment.A note on installation: when you open this box, it comes with a couple of useless paperwork (warranty, basically). You can to to their website to get more info, but you really don't have to. Just plug it and follow the instructions on the screen. You mainly need to reformat the drive (see my pics). It was VERY easy to follow, and it took total about 2-3 minutes. I am including some pictures I took of my screen for you to see. Also, a final note: I noticed that games take a little bit longer to download to this drive than to the internal drive of the console. I have not done a 'scientific' test, and thus it may be my imagination, but I'd say games take about 20-30% longer to download. I don't care much because I usually have my console downloading stuff overnight while I am sleeping.Bottomline: BUY THIS TODAY!
Works great just plug it into one of the front ports of the PlayStation and it has to be on the PlayStation not a PlayStation Port extender that way the PlayStation can read the external hard drive. No problems with it it's easy to set up and ready to go only thing you got to do is format the hard drive to the PlayStation 4 and then it reads it and you're ready to start downloading games on to that.
Super easy to hookup and works like a charm. The PS4 HD seems pretty big when you first get it, but it really doesn’t take many games to fill it up. No longer need to delete titles to make room for new ones.
