I bought this to be my PS4's hard drive as a cheap alternative. It is good so far and I am not having any problem with it.

Case is hard to open without causing some scratches (In my experience) you can also use the old case as a case for the 500gb that comes with PS4

This Seagate Expansion 500 GB Portable External Hard Drive STBX500100 runs on USB 3.0, which is a major improvement over the older 2.0 version, with transfer speed up to 5 Gigabits/sec, versus 480 Megabits/sec of USB 2.0. Computers with USB 3.0 are still relatively rare, but this Seagate Expansion Hard Drive is backward-compatible to USB 2.0, which is what I got in my HP desktop. The hard drive is plug-N-play. Within seconds after I plugged it in, it was up and running. A USB 3.0 cable is included. It is different in construction from USB 2.0 cables. A tiny blue LED lights up when the connection is made. Power is drawn from the computer via the USB cable. No AC transformer or cord is necessary. The actual read/write speed of a hard drive is not the same as the USB transfer speed. I tested this hard drive with a software called DiskBench. The write speed of this Seagate Expansion drive ranges from 114 to 170 Megabytes/second and the read speed from 384 to 614 Megabytes/second, which are decent. This drive is highly portable, measuring 3-3/16" X 4-13/16" X 1/2" thick. The capacity at 500 GB is limited but it is ideal for travelers to carry selected data. I don't have USB 3.0, but I can see the logic of buying a USB 3.0 drive for a computer with USB 2.0, because USB 3.0 will be the standard in a few years. I can't speak to the drive's reliability, but I own two Seagate external hard drives and they have been very reliable.

I was looking for a hard drive to use with my Wii U so I could store games, but I didn't want something bulky. I wanted something that could be powered from the USB ports on the console. I had a G-Drive Slim but that didn't work with the console for some reason so I went to look for another.

The shipping was really fast, took two days and the packaging was fine. The hard drive casing is really nice, a matte black finish but it's smooth plastic and won't show scratches easily. The indicator light is right on top, so you can see disk activity no matter which direction the drive's facing. But the most important feature about this drive is that it's powered by the Wii U's usb ports, which is great for anyone looking for a drive to expand their console's capacity without having to carry around an extra giant bulky power adapter. I don't really see any problems with the drive so far. I've used it for a week and it's fast enough for my uses, quiet as well.

If you're looking for a great little portable hard drive this one's fantastic.

Great price for a huge amount of storage space! Was shipped out and delivered the next day. This hard drive is extremely portable, it's so small I could carry it around in my pocket. It's extremely easy to use, just plug it in and your good to go and drag'n'drop any of your files into the device. Also the device is USB 3 and 2 compatible, which is handy for older computers. I would recommend this to anyone who's just looking for extra storage and nothing fancy. It doesn't heat up and comes with a 1 year limited warranty for defects. Which unless you are accident prone or are careless with what you do on your computer the 1 year limited warranty should be all you should really need.
