Yeah, I'm wondering if this drive is worth $10 more, or if it's just a "gamer" tax.
you also got a black metal encasing.

This will be great for backing up a couple of laptops and for my kids to dump on it the videos they make with their devices since it's portable and doesn't require a power adapter. Plus, it looks like this has a 3 year warranty. Many of the external drives now have only 2 years. My credit card gives me an extra 2 year extended warranty too, so 5 years.

Doesn't even show up in disk manager then?
Shows up as "Not Initialized" / "Unallocated" in Disk Manager. Also shows up as "unallocated" in GParted in Linux.

What about formatting it in windows as FAT32 then trying it on PS4?
Did not try that specifically. I did create a small partition (probably NTFS) and put some junk data on it, hoping the PS4 would accept part of the drive as a sacrifice, but you still have to go to Settings > Devices > USB Storage Devices > Format as Extended Storage, which formats the whole drive in some secret partitioning scheme. Can't try it now since I already moved some games to the drive (gotta have hundreds of GB available on the internal drive even just to do game updates...)

You can try running "DiskPart" and then there is a "Clean" option
You can also boot off a linux disc or USB and format it with that
Yeah, that'd work, but then I'd lose my PS4 stuff.


To clarify: the PS4's "preparing" of the drive does not permanently prevent it from working on Windows, it just formats the whole drive (with no option to do part of the drive) in a filesystem that Windows or Linux can't read. There is not even a "PS4" partition visible that I could try to shrink, the drive shows as unallocated in either OS.

So as far as I can tell, you cannot use part of the drive for PS4 external storage and still use it to do other things. Works great exclusively for either though. Smilie

Wow the proprietary format part is news to me....I used to do a lot of drive swapping on Ps3 and back then FAT32 worked interchangeably. I was under the impression that this was the case for ps4. I just recently did a format of an SSD to a ps4 for the first time and now I'm curious what it changed it to on my end to...

Right? I would have been only moderately surprised to see an encrypted partition, but pretty stunned to see that other OSs can't even see the drive as initialized.

Anyway, I do recommend the drive on this post. Might pick up another to use for "other stuff". Smilie

FYI: Non-shuckable, USB connector is soldered on where the SATA connector is. Amazon review pictures show it.
Thanks. Anybody know what's the best shuckable deal on a 3-5tb drive right now?

Encasing is not metal, it is plastic.
Cord is also like 3 feet. So meant for sitting next to laptop or console.

Not really for desktop to table settings.. too short for that.

Out of all the different regular portable drives I've used with my 360, PS4, and X1, I've never had any issues playing games from them and never felt I needed some "gamer" drive.

I grabbed one of these recently, thinking I'd be able to install some PS4 games on it, and then also use it to e.g. back stuff up from my computers -- Nope.

However the PS4 "prepares" the drive for its use assimilates the whole drive, killing any existing partitions, and makes it unreadable to Windows. No options to choose a partition or tell it how much of the drive to use.
Nop Ps4 take over all of it.

The regular p10, Playstation p10, and Xbox p10 are the SAME external. Just the Xbox one has Xbox branding on it and comes with 2 months of Gamepass ultimate. Theres 0 difference in any of them.

It's USB 3.2 Gen 1, which is capped at 5Gbps. To get the full 10Gbps, you need USB 3.2 Gen 2 which it seems only SSD externals have. Not worth the extra price imo. A 2tb can cost you $250 in most cases.
