Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STBX2000401
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs Compatible with PS4 09/04/2014

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STBX2000401

Pros: In case anyone was wondering, these do contain a Samsung M9T, which conforms to Sony's 9.5mm height requirement for the PS4. The instructions to upgrade on Sony's site were extremely easy to follow and the entire install was a breeze.

Cons: Only had it long enough to successfully install, so far none.
This isn't a con but I suggest running a few tests on the drive before you crack it open...

Other Thoughts: As far as I know this is still the only 2TB drive that meets the height requirement. This was a little cheaper than the newer Backup plus slim models so I thought I'd let everyone know this is also a viable option to quadruple your PS4 space.
I now have a basically new 500GB HD for the next customer that brings me a laptop with a busted drive.
Alternatively, you could put the 500GB back in the external case (if you're careful enough taking it apart!) and still have a decent backup drive.

Pros: This RAM looks awesome in person and more importantly runs flawlessly at advertised speeds. The RAM does default to CL11 1600Mhz as expected, but I achieved advertised speed and timing with one click in the BIOS (I just used the XMP profile and reset. Done.).

Cons: I could have gotten 16gb for this price not too long ago...

Other Thoughts: Anyone having trouble shouldn't bother manually setting these and just use the XMP setting. I can't speak for the longevity of these, but so far I love them.
