Not sure it's worth using with the PS4 considering it's over half the price of the actual console. Good for general storage though.

Presumably this will feature a Samsung drive using SMR technology?

Of course it is. I paid £50 for a WD 2TB external. I took part in beta testing the 4.50 update. The 2TB external has come in very useful in the past few weeks. Before this update I had 1TB in my Pro and only had like 200GB left. £100 for 4TB for an external drive is very good.

​i agree, payed 100 for a 4tb seagate ror my xb1 and now 100 for this maxtor for my ps4, very rare that you see a 4tb external hard drive for less than 115-120 quid

heat op... very convenient find for me you legend I payed 100 for a 4tb seagate portable hard drive for my xb1 about 6 months ago and have not seen another 4tb for around 100 since... so this 4tb maxtor for my ps4 will stop me from needing to delete games/recordings constantly to make room for a new beta/demo/game every couple of weeks (it's so frustrating)

thanks very much

​Depends if you plan on buying alot of games and keeping them for the next 5 years or more, for me it's well worth it mate

I still think the refurbished 4tb mybook drive is better

Solid deal, got myself one. Cheers!

30 day warranty vs 3 year warranty.No thanks. Out of Stock anyway.

I remember it was seagate drives that had a 'period' of high failure rate drives. I think it was the 3TBs?
Since Seagate bought Maxtor, are the drives the same? what about the failure rate on these? still luck of the draw?

Never owned a maxtor drive, so asking before I buy xD

Thanks

Thanks OP; bought one as soon as I saw this last night. I travel a lot for work and have a PS4 Slim coming today so this was perfect timing. Recently had a WD My Book fail so don't think one can ever be certain who is better. Would take this over a refurb any day.

Will any external hard drive work on the PS4 Slim with update 4.5?

It must be USB 3.0, and the PS4 supports up to 8TB. Those are the only limitations I have read.

Edit: Oh and only one external drive can be used at a time.
Edited by: "nige182" 10th Mar

Perfect for my PS4... Put an old 240GB SSD in it as a boot drive/drive for the small amount of games that benefit from SSDs last night. Everything else can go on the external, and this should easily last the lifespan of the console without needing to delete stuff.

thanks op, has anyone not received the 4.50 update yet? I am still waiting

Exactly, its a bargain and if you want extra space its a no brainier, nothing to do with the price of what you are buying it for.

Are these reliable?

Didn't download in rest mode yesterday, but as soon as I got in from work and woke it it started downloading... I'd say just try restarting the console if you use rest mode a lot.
The firmware updates are available to everybody at the same time, there's no staggering of release.

Failing that you can just download it on a PC and put it on a USB stick and update from there

as reliable as a Seagate since they make them...

Not had a seagate in a few years but they used to be very unreliable ;o)

​How do we get the 3 year warranty please?

Are these the type of things you can plug in the back of a Samsung TV? for recording?

Smart tv suggests I can record stuff?

But needs a power adaptor so not as convenient I believe.

Potentially YES, Depends on your TV. Check here. samsung.com/au/…883

Can you crack one of these open and install inside a PS4?

I never noticed yesterday that this is a portable drive as it doesn't say in the header. 4tb for £100 for a 3.5" isn't particularly exciting but portable is reasonable. although the 3tb WD refurb I missed at £56 is a much better bang for the buck

Amazon do a similar one for £99.99.

That said, the quality of the current one seems superior and for that reason I am giving off plenty of heat...

I doubt this one would be thin enough to fit in the drive bay. Even many 2TB disks are too thick.

dont think this is a deal 2.5" used to be on sale in Sainsbury for £99. yes its too big for ps4, havnt checked inside ps4 pro

Unless you are walking distance to a sainsburys with one of those in stock this is a deal as it includes postage.

I'm not sure that counts as a "similar one"

It's 3.5", it's not an external drive, and it's £183.07!

It wouldn't be worth it anyway. With yesterdays 4.50 update PS4 can now use USB drives to install too so it wouldn't be worth voiding the warranty on the drive just to have it inside the PS4.

Similar means not quite the same. So im covered that way. The size is within a couple on inches, so that fits. It is an external drive once you use the provided cage. The price you quote is without the discount, for prime customers.

Many thanks for your enquiry.
