    "Good for the PS4...High but worth it...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...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"

    "This worked for me...Plug and play easy...It isn't the fastest drive the play the games from and I recommend transferring them to either your PS4's internal hard drive or an external SSD instead if the games you're playing require a lot of loading...The external drive is small and compact and just connect it to your PS4 via USB 3.0 port and a quick format of the drive in settings and your ready to go"

    "Does a great job...Sweet Back Up SSD...It ran very hot during the intial transfer of games from the PS4 (about 240 gigs) but once I unplugged it after it finished and then plugged back in after it cooled off, I was able to play games off of it without issue and without it getting very hot...I like the fact it reminds me to plug-in to my laptop and everything happens without me having to click on anything"

    "I was amazed at how simple the easystore is to use, and at the incredible price of $99.00 for 4 TB on the deal of the day from Best Buy, I recommend this drive to anyone looking to backup files from a Laptop or pc and for the photographer's it's a great drive to store pictures and videos...The backup function works well so it will back up stuff, but if you want to use it beyond just a backup then I have not liked it at all as no matter what I have been able to do I have not been able to get it to work other than as read only despite following the directions"
