This review is from: Seagate 2TB Expansion Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STBX2000401 Black
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.READ FULL REVIEW
