    A good HDD if you can get it to work in a PS4 Slim

    Alright normally I would give this five stars but I bought this to double the capacity of the new PS4 Slim I got for Christmas and I switch them out fun fact the hard drive bracket is actually deeper than the hard drive that comes with the system and the same is true with this drive. I replaced the drives and set everything up but then it started constantly crashing. Sometimes it would crash then I would turn it on but then other times it would crash and when it came on it said that the system software hit a glitch and asked me to send an error report. However I know the software is fine because once I put the stock drive back in everything was fine. Thankfully I still had my external drive. So I'm sure this is a great drive and maybe someone else can make this work in a PS4 Slim. I would stick to using it in a laptop. So I would still recommend it. Just not for a PS4.

    I got this to replace the 500 Gigabyte hard drive that came with my PS4 because the 500 Gigabytes is not a good amount of storage anymore with each game today being over 50 Gigabytes. I've had it for less than two weeks so i can't comment on durability. The only reason I gave this hard drive 4 stars and not 5 is because it's nowhere near as fast as a solid state drive. I would've gotten a solid state drive but one of the same size as this hard drive costs more than a new PS4 Pro so it's not practical to get one. If you need more storage for your PS4 I would recommend this hard drive.

    Decent drive, with realistic expectations

    Purchased this drive to increase a home media server capacity for a HTPC. It was decently reasonably priced for a 2.5" drive. It works well enough that I have no issues with its purpose. I would not recommend it as a primary drive or heavy use drive on a normal use PC as it's not very fast though, but it is great as secondary storage. CrystalDiskMark shows sequential reads of 96MB/s and writes of 116MB/s. Random reads and writes are slow as expected. About 1.2MB/s reads and 1.5MB/s writes, with Q=1 reads at only 0.4MB/s.

    Great storage for the price but slow load time

    My sole intent for this HDD was to upgrade my PS4. While the upgrade and download of all games were easy and straightforward. The speed of my load times are noticeably slower (5 sec load can now be 10-15 sec). Not a deal-breaker by any means, considering what I paid so I'm still overall pleasantly satisfied with my purchase. Hybrid is never recommended and SSD are considerably more expensive. Would only make a SSD purchase when the next-gen console releases.

    I have not experienced putting in a new hard drive before this one, so review does not consists of any comparisons to other brands. I’m happy with the amount of space and how easy it is to download and move files into it. I have no complaints on its function. However, my only true complaint is that it’s quite noisy. Of course, if I wanted it to be purely silent I would have chosen an SSD. Overall, it does what it needs to do! You can’t go wrong.

    Western Digital is not my favorite drive to use, because I have had failure with them in the past. I was running critically low on storage on my laptop though, and needed a quick replacement. This did the trick and it did not break the bank. Eventually I want to replace it with an SSD of the same size but they are between 6 and 11 times the cost right now, depending upon the make and model

    It's a bit louder than I expected and obviously slow due to it being 5400 and not 7200, but I bought it for storage as my laptop's secondary drive, not for speed. It works as advertised, though I do notice more heat and noise coming from my laptop.

    The drive was working great as the new replacement in my ps4 but after a couple of days it showed signs of being a rather loud drive. It would even sometimes be louder than the fan that is blowing to cool the system.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    My 500Gb drive was full on the PS4 so it was time for an upgrade, the WD Blue 2Tb was easy to swap having followed online video's. Works great.

    Works great in a server environment, almost as fast as my ssd. Only negative is the packaging does not contain mounting screws.

    There is nothing wrong with this drive I'm just a fan of SSD's speed and don't really see a need to get one for larger storage space yet
