Great price, ordered
Same here. Thanks OP
Great deal
Useful reminder this is USB 3.0, not 3.1 or gen2. The ultra and SSD versions have 3.1 and gen2 respectively if you care about faster transfer speeds.
There is no way that a mechanical laptop hard drive will max out a USB 3 connection unless it has additional Flash storage inside (hybrid). USB 3.1 is just marketing speak for these type of hard drives, I would expect around 100 MB (or just over) per second max. You can relax by choosing this.

The drive in this will be about 110-130MB/s max. USB 3.0's bandwidth is many times greater than any mechanical HDD and in practice slightly lower than SATA can achieve so an SATA SSD is barely bottlenecked.
Thx OP ordered
I just need something PS4 compatible. Heat for the deal, though.

Can't you use this for Ps4? Just purchasing first Hard drive for Ps4. Was going to get 2t capacity but this looked such a good deal. This is the info I read earlier (below) suggested it would be OK. Could anyone in the know please confirm, thanks.

  • PS4 system software version must be 4.50 or later.
  • External Hard Disk Drive with capacity of 250 GB minimum and 8 TB maximum. You can buy an external hard drive with high quality and reasonable price like this drive.
  • USB 3.0 port or later (USB hub is not supported to connect with your PS4, and you’ll need the extended storage device to directly connect to your PS4).
