do this work on ps4

Doc Weird says:

Thanks for the review.

Some (Amazon) reviews complain that the drive doesn’t spin down – or rather spins up again and again unless the Xbox One is completely switched off in Energy-saving mode. Any truth to that?

Does it work flawlessly in “instant-on” mode too?

Joel Jose says:

Does it work very good?

pliiant says:

is this compatible with my ZX81 with Kempston interface???

Eddi Salazar says:

can you use it on multiple xbox ones consoles?

HP GAMER says:

Joel Jose says:

And also was it hard to set up?

Daniel Bishop says:

This is an awesome review! how would you compare Seagate and WD external hard drives to this for Xbox One?

I was looking for a quality review before purchasing the product for the same reason as yourself, that being upgrade my xbox one. Very good review.

I BAIZ I says:

will the 2TB one work the same

Hayden Jay says:

I noticed that it looks like you didn’t move your games over to the drive, just started downloading to it. would it be beneficial to move our game to it and have a relatively clear internal storage?
