    Easy to install and tons of storage!

    Easy to install and I now have 4X more storage vs the original HDD! I love my PS4 that I purchased at launch. The HDD that was in the original is ok but only has 500GB vs 2TB of this one (not to mention it is reasonably priced at $85!). Plus, if you research, you'd see Sony used relatively underwhelming HDD at time of launch. I highly recommend upgrading for more storage and more piece of mind! After all, PS5 is some time in the future but not soon enough! So plenty of gaming left on PS4 and do not waste your time downloading and deleting only to make room for next set of games etc.

    Exactly what I needed, with an extra 1TB of space!

    I bought hard disk drive this to replace a failed hard drive in a 2015 Mac Mini. It had a 1TB WD drive in it already, and all the store had in stock was this 2TB drive. The installation was easy, even though the mac mini is a bit tight to work inside of. The drive worked with the usual macOS disk utilities with no issues just like the original hard drive would. I used macOS's Internet Recovery to restore the OS as the mac mini does not have a CD/DVD drive in it. I was back up and running in no time at all. The extra TB of space doesn't hurt either.

    Replacement drive for PS4

    I got this to replace the 500gb drive that came with my PS4, because RDR2 just takes up wayyyyy too much space. Anyway, drive works perfectly in the PS4. I was a bit concerned because when I replaced the HDD in my PS3 I ended up with a energy-saving drive that would cause stuttering and pauses because the drive would constantly spin down. This drive does not appear to have that problem and performance does not seem impacted at all. Protip: If you have a 2nd spare external harddrive, you can backup your current HDD contents to that, swap the drives, then restore from the backup. This will restore all settings, saves, and downloads.

    been using western digital hd way way back... never had problems, now this no touch ramp tech that are being used on blue drives add peace to my mind.. right now I am using this as a backup for big music files in various format, and some personal files, I expect this to last like the ones I used in the past which to this day, are still working as good as before, except they have smaller capacity.. I use a docking hdd for backing up, which I also connect to a blu ray player and play the music through an amp and Stereo receiver and listen to uncompressed music which comes out excellent.. could not ask for anything more...

    Massive storage for a PS4

    Bought this for my PS4 to replace an external adapter kit that housed a 2TB drive. The spin speed is only 5400RPM, slower than the 3.5" drive I was using but I find no issues with it. In some ways, it feels faster, snappier than the larger drive. PS4 OS works well with it and 2TB is a great capacity for the machine. I wanted to go full SSD but this was a great alternative. Machine is quite responsive with spinning platters. Appreciative customer.

    Great improvement for Playstation 4 Pro.

    This hard drive was used for a Playstation 4 Pro to upgrade the capacity. This thing has doubled my hard drive space. WD is also more reliable and doesn't have as much noise as a seagate drive either. It also seems to run a little bit cooler though it might just be the fact that the heat hasn't completely come in yet. Overall, I recommend it unless you can find a Hitachi drive in stock.

    Easy, youtube will walk you through it if like me you have never done this. I have an Apple, avoided 2 weeks of waiting just to have them put in a new HD and it cost under $100.00 and only took 20 minutes. I don't see a difference with this versus the original at all! Totally worth it to me.

    With this card came great performance. If you are looking for a good card to have on a budget this is a card. I know this review is a little late but im sure somebody will be looking to see if this purchase is worth while. Trust me it is. It is discontinued now but doesn't mean it won't keep getting purchased in the future.

    Got this drive for my new laptop which came with a 256 SSD boot drive. I'm installing just games and large applications on this drive. Installing it was easy and formatting it gives you about 1.83 TB of free space. Games load fast and with no issues at all. Hopefully it will last long!

    A Much Needed Upgrade

    I had a PS4 with a 500gb hard drive. For extra storage, I had an external hard drive hooked up, but that got to be inconvenient. This 2TB HDD was the exact upgrade in was looking for. 4x my original space, without the need for an external drive.

    Purchased this unit to replace a 500 gigabyte hard drive that no longer was able to work for our podcast data storage. This unit was easy to install, effective, and has a fairly quick transfer time for our purpose. Will most likely purchase more in the future.

    This 2TB hard drive is a great value. My machine runs so much faster and it is a lot quieter than before. I have tons of storage so I don’t have to worry about downloads- I am very please with this product and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    I’ve been using Western Digital hard drives for many years and have always been satisfied with the quality and performance. I bought this 2TB model for my laptop to replace the original one which crashed suddenly and it has been performing flawlessly ever since

    I got this for my gaming laptop since it only came with a 256gig ssd and I already have 600 plus gigs in games alone. I installed it myself before i turned the laptop on the first time and moved all my games from my external hard drive to this and I've never had any issues with it.

    simple to install ( like Geico says, "Even a caveman...) even though it's not a solid state drive, it's more than fast enough that I can't tell and the cost savings is pretty good. love having the extra storage space

    Bought this one to add to my laptop as a games drive. I'm currently booting from a NVME drive. This one I have all my games installed and they load quickly and have not had any reliability problems so far. Install was easy, just had to partition and format.

    Bought a laptop with an SSD and just needed additional storage space. Ended up being the best setup I could have imagined. Super fast load up speeds with crazy amounts of storage (especially since I don’t store much music, or videos).

    Great hard drive for my laptop. I added it into my MacBook Pro as a new primary hard drive and it has worked great in it. The hard drive was easy to replace. The storage capacity is adequate and gets a Lotta room for media files.

    Quadruple the storage from regular PS4 hard drive and very easy to do. Same size as the original hard drive, slightly faster and quieter but maybe to being brand new. Would recommend to anyone looking to upgrade their PS4 at a very nice price.

    I have not placed it into the PS4 Pro as of yet but did use it previously with my old PS4 and I recommend this product. No problems as of my previous purchase. My most recent purchase didn't take long to arrive and no damage was done to the box.
