Great price for a 2.5" external HDD.

Lowest it's ever been according to Camel: uk.camelcamelcamel.com/Sea…ops

Sold by Amazon but not in stock. Should be delivered when available if it isn't another misprice.

I regret not buying 2 Maxtor 4tb portable HDDs rather than one. Can't seem to find as good deal anywhere! Got it for £80 through Groupon

How is it too thick? 2.5 inch is the correct size for the PS4.

2.5 inch Hard drives come in different thickness. PS4 hard drive bay requires max 9.5mm thickness.

Because it's a 4-platter design (4 x plates of 750GB) and is therefore 15mm thick (not 7mm or 9.5mm like 2.5" drives up to 2TB).

Some shocking advice by some of the users.

The PS4 only supports drives up to a certain thickness.

The PS4 itself can actually support more than 2tb, Sony quietly updated the size of drives that the PS4 can support earlier this year.

Good to see the prices coming down...

Thanks for ordering with Ebuyer.com!

Just to update it's possible to run the 3tb or 4tb drive by using a sata extender or taken a risk and forcing the fatter drive in.

I am now using 4tb in my ps4 pro via sata extender
