I have two of the Passport versions. Not enough storage space for all my questionable videos.

Judging by the heat on the mediocre HDD deals this should get scorching

Do I need a couple for the XBX and PSPro?


Need? No, but well recommended I filled my one x in record time with games like gears and halo 5 taking around 100gb each and games on average around the 50-60gb mark these days, to save endless deleting an reinstalling an external is a pretty good idea, 4tb might be a bit much for each though unless you have a truckload of games for each system. I have a 1tb for each and i have loads of games and that's done me fine.
Was just looking for a 4tb drive and this popped up.

Thanks.

Price aside, what's the difference between this and passport version? The latter looks sleeker, which makes me think it is also faster?

Yikes, 50-60GB isn't the *average*! Only certain massive AAA games + DLC take up that much space, and how many of those does one really need installed at once? I've found file sizes are generally less on PS4 for some reason. Like you say Gears 4, Halo 5 and Quantum Break are huge and take up like 200GB between them. My 1TB SSHD in my PS4 Pro has been plenty (even with nearly 100GB of captured footage, screenshots, themes, apps etc) and I have a shed load of games installed.

I guess it's all down to individual needs, but I think if you're buying one of these you're going to be looking for things to fill it with to justify the not-insignificant sum you paid, rather than needing the space.
Been passively waiting for a good hard drive deal, guess it's time to pull the trigger!

Is this the best bang for your buck?

Definitely looking for a decent external HD to backup my MacBook, music library etc.

Don't need 4TB, but this seems the best deal that's been around for such a drive.

Any negatives?

All about perspective, if you don't have insane download speeds with your internet or a very high download cap then things like this are a godsend as you don't want to be re-downloading every time ya feel like playing it. The downloading can take hours and can easily destroy a DL allowance. So for some it's not a case of looking to fill anything more conserving what they have.

Lots of ps4 games are 50gb plus now a days not gonna list them but i have loads (quite a few from ps plus as well) that are 30,40gb upwards gamesradar.com/big…/2/

It was a pain in the backside to redownload wwe 2k17 every time my mate came over because it took up 50+gb and had to delete it if i wanted to play anything else, a cheap 1tb solved that if people wanna get a 4tb then more power to them means even less worry about deleting anything ever again

There's a similar deal for a 2TB version. Using the same code should bring the price down from £64.99 to £51.99.
Thanks OP being patiently waiting for a 4tb for sub £80 that’s not recertified
Just ordered for collection and got this in response, "Sorry, your delivery is delayed"

"Hi - we’re sorry to say we can’t get your delivery to you as soon as we said on our website.

What happens next?We’ll call you soon to explain your options in person."

May need to wait for more stock? Let's wait and see.

Yes, I saw that, but it would have to be delivery for me, as the nearest store isn't anywhere near me sadly.

Not in store near me, and no delivery
Superb deal. Many thanks for,the share

Any increase on 900 as people try and outdo each other. You must have a lot a rubbish if you have that many games. I've got 40 games on steam most are rubbish and will never be installed again. I've got around six installed. I've wasted so much on steam rubbish.
Any decrease on 40. I'm trying to underdo the one uppers.

I don’t think it’s possible to even sneeze without getting more games than that on your steam account?

Yeah that's clearly what this is, not just a bit of light hearted conversation... and yeah plenty of rubbish in there who said otherwise?

All the bundle sites where you buy it for £1 cause it has 1 game you want to play and 10 you dont care about will inflate that game count in no time.

Episodic games like telltale games count each episode as a single game too. Daft things like that mean the count is way higher than it really is

The WD passport is a faster drive apparently
Thanks OP. Just bought one in the West Drayton store, their machine said one more left in stock (they had trouble finding mine though, they weren't on display).

I was told the 20% code doesn't usually work unless you reserve & collect (i.e. it's website exclusive), but the very helpful chap at the till did a website price match to get the £79.99 price.
