It probably just has special written on the box. That should be enough.

Different warranty I believe from the description... “Manufacturer warranty does not apply” so you only have the 30 days from Amazon.

Bought one the other day, that I’ll be sending back. Doesn’t work on PS4 with media player, if anyone else wanted to know.

It’s 2.5” which does not require external power supply. It’s good as portable

Yep, that one was a great deal, got 2 of them (8TB for £110, £13.75 per TB, this deal is £18.60 per TB)!

30 days would be against the law so I doubt that.
What would this need formatting to to work with PS3/PS4?

When you plug it in to the PS4, it should say that it needs formatting before use and you just follow the instructions on screen

But these western digital drives are not good. they have usb ports soldered into their boards which means in case the usb port is broken, the drive become useless unlike the seagates counterparts

It works with PS4 as an “extended drive”, for games, but not as a media storage device. My PS3 didn’t recognise it at all.

whats the speed of these, find it hard getting a 2.5" drive thats 7200rpm

Did you format it as FAT32 or exFAT and put a video folder on the root?

Can't see a reason why it wouldn't work if set up properly if it works as extended storage.

Yes I did. Tried a few different ways. PS4 doesn’t seem to be able to read drives that big through media player. PS3 didn’t even see it. I’ve a few 2TB drives and they’re fine.

No you're thinking of the Sid James Edition that came out last year... this has had the CGI effects remastered and everyone who has it gets really angry about Han Solo.

Crazy, never read anything about a size limitation with the media player. Can't find anything about it either. I wonder if it would read a 2TB partition.

It would read the first one, but not any others. Tried that too.
Got this already, but damn it’s a slow drive.

That probably answers my question!
I was going to ask whether this was PMR/CMR or SMR technology.
I bought a 6TB Seagate expansion before Christmas and it too starts well, then drops to horrendously slow on sustained transfers.
