    "Nice !...Oh wow!...All I had to do was plug it in and I instantly saw a pop up asking me if I wanted to convert it to my PS4(meaning I wouldn't be able to use it for anything else afterwards) I pressed "agreed" and in seconds I was able to use it....My only complaint is that there is a light in the front that shines when the HD is in use (aka the whole time my PS4 is on) that I had to tape to keep it from shining in my eyes."
