I got the 5TB one of amazon. Thanks for this.

Does it work on the regular ps4 too ? (2015/2016)

Have you had any issues with yours?
I have the same model and size as yours, only been using it for 4 months and I’ve got to return it. Games running from external started to crash while playing and now the PS4 won’t pick up the drive 90% of the time.

I also had one connected to my desktop which kept dropping out. So I removed it from the enclosure and put it in a different one and it now works flawlessly!

I’m starting to wonder if Seagate might be using crappy components/boards on the enclosure USB connectors. Pretty disappointing if that’s the case as the HDD itself seems fine. :/

They are also good for Xbox One consoles 🙂

Matt Ludwig says:

Thanks for the video! Would it run quicker with a desktop hard drive? Or is it just as quick to go portable and not worry about having to plug it in?

gustavo garcia says:

Does this hard drive still work for you because I have been noticing a lot of people not really trusting Seagate external hard drives as they break down after just a couple months of use. Haw has yours been holding up? I really would want a Seagate drive but don’t trust the brand so much so I am more opting towards a MP or MyPassport drive as they seem a little bit more reliable. Would really help if I got the input of a person who has used a Seagate first hand.

I ended up making one myself, bought an internal 4tb drive when the Pro came out, thing wouldn’t fit in the drive bay, so I bought a HDD>USB adaptor for £7 on Amazon, and used it as an external one.
