    "Fast ....Love it...Given that they are the same price, I would give the edge to the Samsung, in terms of build quality, but the WD is excellent as well, and I like that it has a single cable with an included adapter that allows you to switch between type C and usb type A connectors....It's a little expensive given you can buy a bare drive for $100+ cheaper and buy a drive enclosure for 15 bucks."

    "Very great...Really good...The WD 2TB External USB Gaming drive is a great way to get more storage on your PS4 without having to switch out your original hard drive or upgrading to a PS4 with a larger hard drive....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."
