5.0 out of 5 stars Working as intended for PS4.
By Amazon Customer on March 10, 2017
I bought the 2TB version and it does work with the PS4 (current version 4.50). At first it said it didn't support it but after I restarted my PS4 it worked. Currently works as intended. There's 1.84TB usable after formatting. It took 19 minutes to transfer 3 games (118.3 GB) over from the internal hard drive to this external hard drive. Will update if anything arises.

Edit: It had been a little over two months and its still working as intended. To answer a common question:
It works out of the box. Literally just plug it into your ps4 go to devices under settings then USB storage devices. It should pop up under there, select it then it will say "Format as extended storage" and select that. The support for external hard drives is absolutely great. If you have a TON of downloadable games then you can simply just have multiple external hard drives and download all you games to them. Then you can just plug in the external hard drive with the game you want and you're good to go. I highly recommend looking up how to set it up if you are still having trouble. It is very easy.

Edit (July 5 2019): Still working as expected.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good choice, but there are better alternatives. DETAILED info for Wii U, PS4, XBOX owners!!
By Nobody on February 21, 2017
I've often complained about Amazon rating system for tech products and external USB hard drives are great example of the problem. Simply, it's saturated market with lots of viable options, while impact of "picking wrong" is quite profound. You can wake up one day and find out that your data is gone. Reviews here don't help much: you read 1 star review saying "drive arrived dead", then you have 5 star review saying "drive is great". Which one to trust? Especially since I would prefer "dead on arrival" HDD to one that dies after 1 year of working.

In my case - now that Nintendo Switch is coming - I wanted to download all digitally purchased games I have for Wii U and store them along with save games on one drive. Testing tech components is a hobby of mine and I've decided to go all in - purchasing 3 external HDD drives so I can test how they work and pick the best one. The drives I've tried out are:

WD 1TB Black My Passport Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBYNN0010BBK-WESN
https://www.amazon.com/Black-Passport-Portable-External-Drive/dp/B01LQQHI8I/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ll1&tag=pers0nal-20&linkId=8ae37a7d7b9d5f8cf95b8b36f9e0e5e1

HGST Touro S 1TB 7200RPM High-Performance Portable Drive, Platinum (0S03694)
https://www.amazon.com/HGST-High-Performance-Portable-Platinum-0S03694/dp/B00IVFDQFM/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1487637450&sr=1-1&keywords=hgst+external+1tb&linkCode=ll1&tag=pers0nal-20&linkId=d813ac13cad5cfa89dd1cbc0bd5e087e

Seagate Expansion 1TB Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 (STEA1000400)
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TKFEEAS/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ll1&tag=pers0nal-20&linkId=760fd69a7e53bfff98e624d465627daf

Now, on the Seagate drive I'm reviewing here - it's pretty solid HDD. Read/write statistics (90+MB/s) are great for the price. HGST (Hitachi) Touro beats it performance-wise but it's $30+ more expensive. What is more important are peripherals - HGST spins on 7200 rpm so it also draws more power. Which is quite important because of known problems with Wii U supplying enough power though it's USB ports. Y cable is a must for worry free operation regardless of which external drive you pick for your Wii U:

https://www.amazon.com/Micro-B-External-Seagate-Toshiba-Hitachi/dp/B005M0ICG2/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1487708286&sr=1-1&keywords=y+cable+wii+u&linkCode=ll1&tag=codeproject-20&linkId=cbd46736cfae87a00345b789f6fc5907

During normal usage I couldn't notice any difference between 3 HDDs on Wii U. Probable cause are 2.0 USB ports that are on Wii U - simply there is not enough throughput for performance differences to be visible.

The biggest issue I have with Seagate is historical fail rate. Few years ago Seagate drives had 15%+ fail rate which is catastrophic. I bought Seagate Central HDD in 2013 only to replace it a year later. That's also why I got WD and HGST to test - historically those brands have lower fail rates for their drives. HGST is way better than both Seagate and WD; but unfortunately you won't find it in stock here on Amazon as much as Seagate and WD. This is probably because WD owns HGST/Hitachi and wants to push WD as consumer brand.

In the end, my pick is WD 1TB Black My Passport. Looking at historic data, warranty info and number of 1 star reviews here on Amazon I felt more confident in storing data on that drive. Seagate HDD is solid pick and great value, but if for same amount of money you can get hard drive that has lower fail rate and better warranty - why wouldn't you buy it instead?

I avoid linking externally from Amazon because those often get edited out of review. But if you want more data - like historic fail rates, more testing info and answers to your questions, leave a comment on this review and I'll be glad to respond and help! And if this review helped you, please like it ;). Here are also answers to few questions that I see are often asked on this HDD:

* This drive will work as expansion storage for consoles. This includes Wii U, PS4, Xbox One. So will WD drive that I recommend.

* You can no longer use this HDD to replace PS4 internal hard drive. Seagate has removed internal SATA connection. I am somewhat confused why people were doing this. 7200 RPM laptop drives would be much better choice because of performance considerations. Like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Black-Performance-Mobile-Hard-Drive/dp/B01DOL05OC/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1487707269&sr=1-3&keywords=wd+hard+drive+laptop&linkCode=ll1&tag=codeproject-20&linkId=c409c09ff004693c145d4790073d011e

* This drive is compatible with Mac OS X, backwards compatible with USB 2.0, etc. In a nutshell this is standard 2.5 inch (laptop) NTFS-formatted, 5400 RPM HDD with USB instead of SATA interface.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALWAYS buy RETAIL packaged drives.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 11, 2019
This review is for the 4TB Expansion Drive (with the 'diamond square cut' plastic case).

Great compact enclosures. I would suggest putting on some small rubber 'feet' on the base to lift it up and allow any heat to dissipate more freely. The HDD is easily powered by the supplied USB cable. I have had two other Seagate Expansion drives running for almost 4 years with no problems.
Please remember, just because these (or any other) portable HDD's are 'portable' doesn't mean that they should still be moved or knocked around too much. Always handle with care if you're carrying it from one location to another to prolong its longevity.

If you're purchasing this drive to use as the manufacturer intended (as an external USB HDD), then it gets 5/5 stars and you need read no further.
_______________________

If you're looking for a 2.5" HDD to use inside a laptop, in a Disk Array enclosure, inside a PS4, or other 'internal' device, then read on...
This 'Expansion' drive can easily be opened up to remove the actual Hard Drive inside.
And it's a far cheaper option than buying a bare 4tb 2.5" HDD.

I purchased two of these 4TB drives to use in a 2.5" RAID enclosure.
[Please Note: The 4TB HDD is 15mm thick. Lower capacities are variably thinner. Always check the max bay height of the device you are thinking of inserting the HDD into].

The HDD can be removed from it's plastic casing by gently prising away the top lid (which is clipped in). Some of the clips WILL break, but if you're careful, the plastic casing can still be clipped back together again and reused (if you need to). Once inside, gently lift up the drive (it's only slotted in place by 4 silicone screw covers), then slide out and peel off the sticky silver foil on the connector end. Make sure you peel off the foil on both sides of the drive. The USB/SATA connector can then be gently pulled off. You will also need to remove the 4 side holding screws to enable you to slot it in and secure it to your new bay location.

The end result is that you now have a Seagate Barracuda 4TB drive, exactly the same as you would if you bought a loose ('bare') Seagate drive. The main advantage being - that you've just saved about 30-50% of the cost compared to buying an identical "bare" internal 4TB Barracuda HDD on Amazon!

What are the disadvantages? You've likely voided the warranty.
BUT, before you shoot off elsewhere thinking the warranty factor is a deal-breaker, consider the following two points:

1) If you're buying a bare HDD (no matter what capacity) you should NOT be buying it off of Amazon if its being 'SOLD' or 'DISPATCHED' by Amazon - especially those that come without any retail packaging.
Hard Disk Drives are sensitive little things and don't take very well to being mishandled or knocked about. Amazon packaging staff DO NOT know how to handle or package Hard Drives - this is not some off-the-wall claim, BELIEVE me, it's highly substantiated! Despite Amazon having complaints on this subject stretching back over the last 8+ years, and despite always promising to correct things, Amazon are still today sending out hard drives in insufficient packaging.

The majority of Hard Disk Drive failures that people report and complain about were caused because of how they were handled before they got to you (not the manufacturer's fault) - and if you've purchased one that's been 'handled' by Amazon - you're playing a gambling game of roulette! By the time you receive that drive in your hands, it's possibly been rattled around more times than an ice cube inside a cocktail shaker. Is it really any wonder why you see so many 1 and 2 star reviews (irrespective of brand)?

2) A lot of bare Hard Disk Drives being sold on Amazon (especially those that are 'competitively priced') are actually sold without a manufacturers warranty anyway.
They were either imported from somewhere where the Warranty is not valid. If your drive doesn't fail on arrival (or shortly afterwards), you will never know this unless you attempt to register it. Or because they are surplus drives that were originally intended for use inside an external enclosure (such as these 'Expansion' ones being sold above) -there are actual reports and reviews that Seagate have informed customers of this fact.
And even if your drive does come with a warranty - if the drive fails, it's only going to cover an exchange. You will need to return the failed drive (most likely at your cost) and the warranty will not cover any data recovery. Meaning that essentially, once you send it back to get a replacement, you will never be getting the chance again to have your lost data back.
_______________________

My final advice is, be aware of the 'handling' risks in buying HDD's from Amazon. And if doing so, ALWAYS buy RETAIL packaged drives. REJECT EVERYTHING ELSE.

If you choose to accept this mission....then, good for you!.... This message will not self-destruct in 10 seconds... although it seems Amazon have obliterated the comments on all reviews!
