Yes, it may be somewhat overkill, but with some of the upcoming new Xbox One X games coming in at 100GB+, it wouldn't take a hardcore gamer that long to start filling it up.

I have about 10TB, but if you Google 'datahoarder' you'll find the serious storage freaks. No one blinks at 30TB there and some of them have petabytes.

Uncompressed movies take up a lot of space, for example. Archives of entire websites, that sort of thing.

That's one way of filling your computer with utter crap and slowing it down to make it feel like it's 10 years old. Then having pop-ups all day reminding you to renew your subscription. urrghhh

This eventually. As it stand now HDCP 2.2 / AACS 2.0 has yet to be cracked.

True UHD rips will be thin on the ground for a while yet.

Well for people like me that keep all their crap from their life (photos, documents, videos, downloads ect...) then it fills up pretty quickly. I bought a 4TB WD External Hard Drive a few weeks ago. Turned it on, shoved my stuff on it and 10 mins later it was ful
This will be good for backing up that backup of my backups

I don't think the PS4 takes a drive like these. (The Ines with USB hubs).

Old models from April have those the SMR archive drives, new models this summer are meant to have a drive similar to the 8tb barracuda pro but less reliability bit slower but uses less power but no smr is main thing.

If someone is on a tight budget WD has again recertified 6tb for £99.

That'd be roughly 120 4K films... are there even that many 4K blurays out yet?!
I have about 50 so far on a drive
