FYI, it's compatible with PS4 and PS4pro but will only see major load time improvements on PS4pro since this is a SATA III drive and PS4 is only SATA II.

And according to countless 1 star reviews on amazon and newegg (i stopped counting in the hundreds) this will die in your ps4 in 3-6 months. Maybe bad batches or design change, most bad ps4 reviews are from january 2017 on

Surely?
With tax, it's almost less than a few bucks at eBay (everyday price).

not major even in the pro. You will see major load time improvement only with SSD (and that when you compared with SSHD and stock drive)

See this post for a very deep test: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showt...?t=1316820

IMO only buy this for the PS4 pro if you tight in budget and really need that much storage, or else stick with stock or spend more to make it worth

I was thinking about getting and using as an external drive for my Xbox one but based on the bad reviews from PS4 users I may hold off.

For $20-30 more and you can double or triple the storage capacity by getting a different external solution on sale.
