2.5 inch drives will cost more than their 3.5 inch counterparts, but the benefit of the 2.5 inch drives is that no separate power supply is required.

To be fair, it could be a reputable company selling it on eBay. But still, standard vague HUKD 'got it elswhere' comment

I bought this when it was £105 and it is an excellent drive, speeds are great.
Hmm.... I'm in the market for an expansion drive for my PS4. A quick glance through the recent reviews and they are somewhat mixed with a lot of people reporting that their drives have failed within months of purchasing it... The value is good but if I'm going to be downloading large games onto this and then possibly lose them I might have to give this one a miss.

Anyone know if the drive inside is skinny enough to be used as the internal drive in a ps4 pro? I have the 2TB version in the playstation just now and it's fine, but still would like extra space. Don't know if this is too chubby though.
I've got the maxtor 4gb. It's the same drive as this. They are excellent drives. My maxtor Aldi does USB 3.1/2 for extra speed.

No, it will not fit inside, it's slightly larger than the 2TB

It should if you remove this drive from the external casing and replace the drive in your ps4. I think the ps4 supports up to 8TB internal storage. Alternatively you could use it as an external drive
I have this, it's very noisy.
I have this great drive, quiet and fast. I got it for a £100 about a year ago.
does this allow to be opened up and used inside a pc? or is the usb circuit board fused together?

PS4 firmware has problems with drives over 4tb, so it's not worth going bigger than that.

What's the point just plug it in and have 6TB
This is hot
Very hot. How long is the warranty?

I've had three of these for over a year. No issues here.

If all you want is basic storage, without any backup or security software, then these are ideal.

If it had, this would have been removed as a dupe wouldn't it?
Why are these so expensive now? Got a 3.5 4tb like 3 years ago for 60 quid.... 2.5 is slow and crap.

No.... Those are the backup plus ones in case you didn't know those are slightly different..
Ah been looking for a external hard drive to save all the 1000's of photo's on my iphone/laptop on in case anything goes pete tong with lappy etc. £94 bit minty but at 4tb i imagine it's worth it

Thankyou, I was intending on removing it from the caddy (like i did with the 2tb drive) but couldn't find sizes for the drive itself. It physically may be too chubby to fit.

Apparently games running from an external hdd suffer a performance hit which kinda negates the point of getting a ps4 pro), so I had planned to use the 4TB internally for more demanding games, and use the 2TB as storage for less demanding ones if I still neded space

I've got 2 of those drives for about a year with no issue. The only drives which ever failed on me were 1 Hitachi 2.5" internal drive and 1 WD internal 3.5" drive, the 2 companies which are supposedly better than Seagate.

Hitachi, me too. Had a green 1tb and that died after about a year.

When Eurogamer's Digital Foundry tested it, they found by and large games loaded FASTER running from an external HDD over an internal HDD.

The issue on replacing the internal drive comes down to depth- the PS4 uses a slimline 2.5" HDD no thicker than 9.5mm. Most of the 4TB 2.5" drives are 15mm, as are a lot of the 2TB drives, so you have to be careful on what you buy unless you go for one of those unsightly caddies.

actually it will fit inside, case will bulge a wee bit in that area but its dooable.

If you are running out of usb ports then you could always use this

I know because I used to use this before the 3.50 update.

not true, there are no issues with running games from an external hdd
Great deal O.P
l fully recommend these. I've two smaller, about half this size and performance is great. Heat
Is this relistingan old thread?
I know this isn't the best place to ask, but does anyone who is using this drive as an external hdd for their PS4 know if you can transfer games from the external hdd back to the internal ps4 hdd once you've moved it onto the external. I basically want to move all the games that I'm not playing to the external and keep only my actively played games on the internal ps4 hdd, but I want the option to move a game back onto the internal in the future so I don't have to play off the external hdd. Is it a 2-way system or can you only move from internal to external? Thanks to anyone who can answer this!
