    Sometimes with tech things just don’t work... this has been a pleasant experience. I was fill with such joy to plug this into my PS4. The PlayStation expanded the space I could use and just works. Haven’t had any issues. It does need power from the outlet. Which wasn’t a big deal for me, I’m not planning to ever move it.

    Love the Seagate drives. We buy a lot of them and they are super good. They rarely fail and it's usually to physical damage we caused.

    Perfect for what it is. Tons of space. Low cost. Slick design. Unfortunately the reliability of any drive, especially ones with their own power adapters, isn't 100%. Any unexpected shut off of the computer, or loss of power in general could really hurt the drive. Always "Safely" eject your hardware! I also recommend finding a free hard drive health monitoring software and a backup power supply to be proactive about failing drives and data loss!

    Great price for the storage. It works great for me and seems very sturdy. I have another Seagate external hard drive which I like so that lead me to get this one. I have had a couple of hiccups with the use of this however. I formatted it to work for both PC and Mac (the same as I did with my other Seagate external hard drive) but it does not show up when I plug it into my Mac. I would try reformatting it but I already have too many files stored on the harddrive to offload to do that. So that has been inconvenient. Also there was a problem with it also not reading on my PC, and it turned out it needed to be unplugged from the power for a time and then connected to power for it to work again. No harm was done, but I had to dig around on the internet to figure out that was the issue because I had assumed it just got corrupted or something, so that is something to be aware of.

    After much searching I found this 8 TB external hard drive to be the best value for the money. You can save all your work, photos, videos, etc on here in case your main computer is stolen or self destructs. It give me peace of mind knowing I won't lose my work. You must back up every few days so your important data is not at risk of being lost.

    Excellent External PS4 Hard Drive

    It works great with my PS4. The 3.0 usb is very fast and this model is combatable with the new PS5. I Recommend this Item If you own Quite a few AAA Games. I have Over 50 100gb plus games installed at the moment and there is no lag or issues swapping between games. The setup was plug and select the option to format for PS4 and under a minute It was transferring the data from my PS4 to the external hard drive. It is a great buy for the price If your looking to expand your PS4 hard drive as much as possible. 8TB is the max amount of external hard drive space that the PS4 is compatible with. I am not sure about the PS5 but I am sure that this external hard drive will be with you till the PS6 comes out.

    Very easy installPlug and play and quiet and so far seems to stays cool and not overheat . one odd thing after Installed the drive my numbers did not work on the keyboard ... easy fix just uninstalled the keyboard driver and rebooted pc and all works great . But drive is running great and recommend this to anyone Pros : quiet drive , works perfect with a pc Cons: usb cord could be longer . And small odd issue after installed but could have just been my pc. Other : for any backup software had to go To seagate site and not on drive already but minor in convince Overall if looking to expand space on your PC this is a good drive . I use it as my media drive all my movies and music live there to keep my c drive free .

    I'm using this as a backup to my two 4tb WD external drives that I use for backups. Transfer of photos and documents, which is all I'm backing up, has been easy and relatively fast. No complaints. I've had several types of external drives, including Western Digital and Toshiba. The latter is the only one that I had problems with. I went with this drive because of the lower sale price at the time.

    My review is a combination of my Seagate 4TB drive, which I bought a few years ago, and this current Seagate 8TB drive, which I have now owned for a few months. Both models look exactly the same, and have performed perfectly. No issues whatsoever, and the speed of transfers is fine. I've been very happy with these external drives, and I'd say this is a solid purchase!

    I purchased the Seagate - Expansion Desktop 8TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive for the purpose of storing all my movies. It is simple and easy to work with. Anyone that can use a thumb drive can use this. It doesn't get any easier than this. No frills, nothing extra just storage. Perfect.

    Bought this for storage for PS4 games for my PS5. This is the most amount of gb you can use for the PS5 and I have about half the storage left, only issue is when the system turns off unexpectedly but that is a PS5 problem and not the drive. I highly recommend

    I depend on these 8TB Seagate Expansion Desktop drives for my Plex home jukebox content...2+ yrs in and they've been solid performers at a great price. For backup/archiving, might be slower write speeds but when you're dealing w/ 100s of GBs of video, its always a waiting game--what you want is good ROI, which you get here. And no bloatware or auto-sleeps that interfere with serving content.

    Cheap, plenty of hard drive space, and small physical size make this one of the best hard drives you can buy right now. You do have to plug in the hard drive into a wall outlet and it is a little noisy, but still a really good value.

    I am currently using this on a PS4 Pro and it has made an amazing experience of not having to delete and re-download a game again due to not having enough hard drive space. If you don't have the money to buy a (super expensive) SSD internal hard drive, this is the best bang for your buck. 8TB is enough for alot of games. Only downfall is that you need to have a plug dedicated to power this one.

    This plugged into my Windows 10 workstation and was instantly recognized. I didn't have to do anything special. I use this to back up the server. The only configuration I had to do was change the backup program because this installed as a different drive letter than the last external USB drive. After that, no problems.
