Is this drive a good one to get for Ps4? I've had my eye on the Seasgate STBX2000401 but thats almost twice the price of this.

Yes, work great with the PS4

Thanks for this. I just got a PS4, so this works out perfectly. Picked up a blue one at Amazon so I can get my $15 statement credit for spending over $60 with my American Express card.

Thanks for the reminder about the AX offer! I forgot I have it loaded on my card!

Damn, I should have checked CAG earlier because I looking for something to use my $5 ebay coupon that just expired. Might still order one of these for the PS4.

Fuck . Amazon is saying it's not available right now.

 

Edit: Okay, woke up, got out of bed, got off my tiny little phone, got on the PC, and ordered a blue one for $68.00. Hopefully it's the same exact drive.

Does anyone know if this drive works well with the xbox 360? 

 

I'm also wondering if I can have two plugged into my 360 for 4tb of extra space.

 

...Yes, I would like to have that much.

If you have yet to try Jet.com.

 

https://jet.com/prod...f9ab8235ba39335

 

Same drive, use code JETCOMSAVE2 to bring it down to 55ish.

Thanks for this. My total came to $53.79. Got one for my Xbox One.

Fuck it. I ordered two more silver drives for the 360. If anyone has any insight for me about this, I'd sincerely appreciate the help. Hopefully these work well. I found a couple amazon reviews saying this drive works on the 360. I couldn't find any info regarding the helpfulness of an AC adapter. I know it's recommended to have an external power source for the Wii U. I'm not sure if it's good to have external hdds sucking all of their power from the 360's USB ports. 
 
One gamestop article says it's conceivably possible to have two 2TB drives connected to the 360, but I couldn't find any confirmation on this. I guess I'm the first nerd who wants 4000gb on a system where the games are around 4gb or less. I understand how crazy it sounds.
 
Even though I'm half asleep, I made sure to buy the 2tb silver drives and not the $64.99 500gb silver drives.

Great idea, completely forgot I needed something in the $60 range at Amazon to purchase with my AmEx.  Thanks!

Does anyone know if this is a good external hard drive for the Wii-U?

Probably not. Nintendo recommends you don't use usb powered drives and you'd need a y-cable even if you did use it

 

 

Honest question, not sure where else to ask this: If I use this seagate to swap with the native 500GB ps4 drive, could I use the 500gb with my WiiU?

You could make the swap (I'm using my ps4 drive as XB1 ext., w/ a different enclosure)

but the enclosure itself is usb powered ("portable drive")

How the hell did this not make the front page?  I placed the Amazon order, then saw this, canceled my Amazon then picked this up for $53.xx - You, my friend, freaking ROCK!

Just ordered this using the Jet code. I'm guessing it was cheaper last night because I paid $65 after taxes with the $20 off code. Still, cheaper than Amazon had it before taxes.

I don't see any reason why not; after all, the PS4 HDD is just a 2.5" SATA drive.

There's another code that's $25 off JETCOMSAVE2

20NOW is what you'd see if you went to the site and grabbed the code there

 

 

*But you're no longer a new customer so I wouldn't try canceling and reordering, if they'd let you.

Ahhh, I see ... I used the code from yesterday NEWTOJET. So I got it for $20 off instead of $25.

 

Shame, but at least it's just a $5 difference. I'd be more bummed if I ordered from Amazon and ended up spending $15-20 more.

Inserting the obligatory "removing drives from a retail enclosure drive to put into your PS4 may be a warranty-voiding situation" in case it wasn't mentioned previously.

That's just CYA. Y-powered drives have, and continue to work great.

Thanks to CAG I convinced myself to not get the thing I posted about (the hdd through newegg on ebay) and ended up getting the PS4 controller through JET instead

The description mentions it being the slim multiple times but the title doesn't say it's the slim.

Obligatory not-caring response. That's just the drive and they fail anyways sometimes geez whatevs

not sure if it's been mentioned but could also get this Toshiba 1tb drive for 25 with the coupon at jet

 

 

https://jet.com/prod...1fdb68ded330ec2

 

 

it was 47.99 last night, I had to add toilet bowl cleaner for 2.xx  to get it over 50.00. with it being 49.99 now would have to find something cheap or add on something you would purchase anyway (lots of cleaning products cheap).

I see Amazon restocked.   it was out of stock earlier and other sellers were selling it for 10 bucks more.  New egg sold 800 in less than 24 hrs. 

 

On  the warranty thing hey one can always spend 70 more for a single.    I will roll the dice for 70 bucks saving.     They always advise testing it when it arrives.   Mines was showing 1.77 tb free.

I just bought this drive from jet to swap in the ps4 and the ps4 drive should be easily swapped into a 12GB PS3 super slim, correct? I have the bracket for the PS3 too.

There should be no problem with that plan.
