    Works as advertised

    This is a fairly small package barely thicker than a phone but wider. One thing to note that it can run up to 35 mbps when transferring files from my (slow) Celeron computer with a 7200 rpm hard drive. Likewise it is compatible with the PS 4 but compatibility with the X Box remains to be seen. At two tb this disk drive is fairly sufficient to store 50 video games or lots of photos though there is a much bigger model at 4 tb. Suffice to say 2tb is more than enough for me. And from what I’ve gathered the hdd is non-standard meaning you can’t take it apart and use it on your computer. There’s not much anymore to describe this nice package except that it does the job well and works as advertised. And given the reputation of Western Digital, this hdd is highly recommended for other users as well and is not limited to gamers.

    This small but effective hard drive will add a ton of space to your dwindling ps 4 on board memory for a ton of added games that you can quickly access and take with you if you need be. Connecting it is about as easy as it gets and formatting takes seconds. It’s extremely low profile and will not take up much space next to your existing unit.

    Fast, reliable storage for the PS4

    With the opportunity to expand the storage capability of my 500GB Playstation 4, I trust Western Digital products to do the job well. The WD Gaming Drive doesn't disappoint here. The 2TB capacity is perfect for freeing up my PS4 storage - great for PS Plus members who find themselves constantly downloading new games each month. My biggest pet peeve with my system is the error that my game didn't download due to storage capacity. This drive has removed this problem and makes downloading games that much more convenient. The drive itself is very compact and simple to use - just plug it into one of the the PS4 USB slots and you're ready to go. Game saves and data transferred at an acceptable speed. I moved about 400GB of data in less than half an hour. I would have liked a longer USB cable, as the short length doesn't allow the drive to hide while staying connected to the PS4. However, the drive does it's job quickly and reliably, and I'm satisfied with that. A great option to expand your Playstation 4 storage capacity and back up your digital game library. Easy to recommend. Full disclosure, I was given this product for my honest, unbiased review.

    As an individual with the older 500gb PS4, I quickly filled up all of the available storage. Prior to purchasing this HD, I found myself deleting and offloading games and system apps in hope of keeping my PS4 fully operational. With those efforts proving to be unhelpful, I decided to purchase an external HD. I was able to install and get this device up and running in less than 5 minutes. The HD is quick and quiet; I wish I would've purchased this sooner.

    My husband uses this for his PS4 to store some of his games off of his PS4. So far he said it's helped with storing his games and gives him a lot more memory off of his PS4 which he has said seems like it was slowing down until he moved a lot of content to this hard drive.

    I got this external hard drive so I could transfer my game info from an old PS4 to my new one. It worked simply and perfectly! No problems. And now I have a larger external hard drive ready for storing games in the future.

    Even though I say that that most external storage systems are the same, this is a great one to have for its slim feature and reasonable price. Great for those on the go days when I still need my games.
